I remembered this restaurant from years ago but the selection this time was not great with turkey being part of the line-up for game meat. No bush meat served. Pieces are small and chewy. When we complained they were extremely accommodating and brought out much fresher cuts in abundance that were superior and were far tastier. Rather than go away... More

This restaurant creatively combines dinning and fun. There are no such formalities synonymous with fine dining. You are just let loose and eat till you drop. Food is good, service is good, ambience is just right and you don't want to leave. Highly recommend to everyone looking for something different.

An exciting restaurant with a different concept. A lovely atmosphere, "the world" biggest barbecue, good food and a must if you are in Nairobi. Ask if they can sing for you or tell the wait if someone has a birthday!

I'm not a big meat eater, and not a hunting enthusiast at all, so the whole concept of the Carnivore is not up my alley. That said, I've taken visitors here and they have enjoyed it. There are no meats of exotic animals, thank goodness but Crock, Ostrich, and others I can't remember are there. You certainly will get very... More

We visited this restaurant on my spouse's birthday and we enjoyed every moment of it. After being ushered in, Our drinks orders were expeditiously served as was the first course of the elaborate menu. Immediately after we were thrust on a long haul, all sorts of meat did rounds and rounds on our table until we flagged them down. To... More

Carnivore use to be a place where you could try all different kinds of meat, but not anymore. The atmosphere is buzzing and the food good. We went on a deal where you can eat as much food as you like for Ksh 9.90 (about £8.00). It certainly kept the group busy and we all left contented and full. There... More

Lots of different fresh meat; exotic and standard meat available. I tried ostrich, crocodile, ox and Giraffe. I am actually not a big meat eater, but I am always willing to try new things. Fantastic service and lost of fun
