Friendly and personable staff, lovely food, wide variety of choice and great service. Waffles, eggs, a welcome espresso all of which contributed to a wonderful experience. Liked the smoothie shots as a taster, really lovely idea.

Away from the hubbub- a quiet and relaxing outdoor restaurant beside the pool at the Serena Nairobi Hotel. Meals are casual, as is the dress code. Service is quick.

the out door setting and beautiful gardens provide the much needed ambiance for an outdoor event. it can host a huge crowd and provide excellent service,the wait team is fast and efficient. the food buffets have a huge selection of dishes and food never runs out. The old tents need replacement . overall it is an excellent place.

After looking at the Tripadvisor recommendation I visited Pool Garden Restaurant. But it was really surprising for me to see that Pool Garden has only snack type meals and it has a very menu. It can be an option for having a light lunch before or after swimming but not for dinner and even for a complete lunch.
