I just had an excellent lunch at Rudis in KAREN Nairobi and I must say it was great! Very homely and private for a cost outing! We started with pumpkin soup which was very nice, main meal was Red snapper with rice and it is the best I have eaten in kenya. Dessert of berries was out of this world!... More

Rudy's serves one of the best cuisines in Nairobi. Rudy himself is of Swiss origin and his fondue is to die for! He uses onlty the freshest of ingredients and his fish dishes never fail to amaze us as do his deserts.

Rudy's is built as an Austrian chalet and has the atmosphere to boot. The food is very good, if in my opinion just a little pricey. That said it is still worth paying the price for the quality, the ambience and the service, all of which are excellent. We go there on special occasions and have never been disappointed.

A trip to Rudy's always guarantees top quality service and tasty food. We had a lovely laid back Sunday afternoon in the peaceful garden.

It was my fourth or fifth visit to Rudy's. Frankly, I enjoyed all my previous visits but this changed on March 18th 2015. Okay I complained about my order, based on my previous experience @ Rudy's and elsewhere in the world. The Chef was courteous, tried to explain and offered an alternative, which I accepted. Then came the owner before... More

We came last week to eat a cheese fondue to Rudy who have the knowledge of the real fondue. We come back one week after to eat a delicious beef filet with the " butter café de Paris", excellent.

Food was bland. I expected alot from this place but it was a disappointment. It was not worth the money. The dessert was terrible but it has beautiful gardens.
