“Superb seafood”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Don't worry about Nairobi's distance from the sea. This restaurant has been serving the best seafood in town for around three decades now.

“Wow, this is the place to eat!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The food is great, the atmosfere and ambiance is great. The chef prepares very tasty food and visits each table. Service is unfortunally avarage and not at the same level as the food.

“Old School Service”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The food and the service were great!!! Loved the salmon, and the little details on the dessert plates were a nice touch. Pricey but worth it. The facilities need some attention.
