Magnificent setting, but get there early to get an outdoor table. Food and service are both good. Live music on Sunday afternoon is a further enhancement.

Went there with friends for dinner. The outside private sitting with the fireplace was amazing. The chicken wings starter was perfects. The sirloin hot stone was the best I have had. Service was great. Waiters were kind, helpful and friendly. Made our evening Can't wait to make another dinner plan there soon.

The ambience is to die for quite amazing. Serene and relaxing environment. The t-bond steak was not done to my liking and was flat in taste and quite dry. The potato wedges were delish. Wine list was disappointing. The service was good.

I was here for this year's Valentine and to be honest I was not impressed, may be my expectations were too high after hearing so much about the place. I understand the need for candles on the day of love but it ended up being so dark especially inside the lounge had to walk carefully to avoid banging on stuff.... More

We sat in the garden, at a table by a blazing fire under a lovely shelter. Impala walking by us just a few yards from our setting! The food was excellent. Two of us had the, more than ample fillet steaks - must have been 2 x 6oz at least. The other couple shared the biggest T-Bone steak that I... More

The restaurant has been built at the edge of a natural spring, in the middle of this indigenous forest with utmost sensitivity to environmental conservation. We did our landscaping with hand wheel barrows to reduce vehicular foot print in the forest. Our well maintained lawns can host up to 4 functions at the same time, totalling to 1700 pax. We also have an ample secure parking facility. One of Dari's best secrets lies in the gardens which is patrolled by beautiful Thompsons' gazelles, Impalas, Dik-diks, Bush babies, Tree hyrax, Tree squirrels and birds like peacocks, cranes, hornbills, sunbirds to name a few.
