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.

We stayed at the Fairmont and tried to dine at Tatu the night we arrived but there was a 45 min wait. I recommend booking in advance if it's prime time! We decided to eat at the terrace restaurant instead and went to Tatu tonight....More

The first time we came here was a couple years ago and we had a nice experience, so we took some friends for dinner. Everything on the menu costs three times as much as other restaurants, ridiculous. My husband's steak was way under-cooked, he had...More
