The restaurant speaks of 5 Star quality and experience, however the steak meals served were cold, beyond expectations, dishonest servers and with poor quality. Will not ever recommend nor eat there again.

Stayed twice pre and post safari at the Fairmont and ate twice at the Tatu restaurant. Great ambiance, great food, huge portions and above all great service. Beef Carpacio to die for. Tomato, cheese and avacado salad exceptional. Great wine list, great desserts.

By far the best dinner we had in Naerobi. The waiter was very knowledgable and passionate about his job. The Chef came to the table and introduced himself. The food was amazing, the ambience really nice. Definatelly recommend, make sure you try their African wine.
