Delightful setting both during the day and night, good and wide range of food, good service, braziers in the evenings if a little cool.

We visited on a Saturday night in late July. The restaurant was quiet but the ambiance was good. The cafe was located in the hotel garden which was beautifully lit. The complex was extremely secure, the staff friendly and the range of food on offer good. The pizzas were delicious

I enjoyed dinner at the hotel and found the whole ambiance and the quality of the food very agreeable. It is one of a number of good restaurants within the gated and very secure area of the Fairview Hotel. It is very conveniently situated for the visitor who does not want to brave the peak hour traffic of Nairobi.

I was a late guest for the restaurant, my plane came in somewhat late. So I decided not to go for a too complicated meal. I saw veggy sushi on the menu and got curious. Well: it was perfect! Delicious!

I had two satisfactory, but not great dining experiences at one of the sister restaurants on the compound. Near the end of my stay I decided to venture s little further and found a gem. The atmosphere was similar but the cuisine was distinctly better. I asked the waiter for a lunch recommendation and he suggested the chefs burger. Simply... More

I met my boss who was staying at the hotel and some other business colleagues on a beautiful evening in January. The ambience is very, very pleasant and relaxed. The staff, in what I have come to find, in typical kenyan style where unfailingly polite and helpful. I had a dish that was billed as a kenyan dish which was... More
