Great food. Indulge yourself and do the seafood platter. Service was just as good. Not sure about the location but hey, welcome to Africa.

I had heard this restaurant was the best in Nairobi. There is no doubt the service and quality is exceptional, I didnt think it lived up to the reviews. I would go back however, it was a lovely experience, and one of the nicer places we ate at while in Nairobi

This restaurant was another surprise in Kenya. It was the start of our trip, so we were cautious about food, but didn't have to worry here. The staff were some of the best I have come across, with not only great service, but a great personal touch. They asked us all our names, and when we got deserts, they were written on the plate, with a saying in chocolate. All the food and drinks were fantastic, and we would highly recommend , but expect to pay for it. The restaurant specialises in seafood.

We had dinner here during our stay in Nairobi and it was excellent.
The seafood was absolutely delicious and the service was very good.
It is expensive but I can say this was one of the best meals I ever had in a restaurant. Didn't know that tuna could taste so good.

You should definitely try the dessert.

Strongly recommend it.
