We found that most of the food in kenya was aimed at recreating british food, which isn't that great to begin with. This restaurant hit the nail on the head - food was excellent!! We actually ate here twice, once before we went out on safari and then once when we returned. We wished we had gotten to eat here the whole time. I highly recommend this place, the atmosphere is amazing as well.

I like the ambience, & dark wood theme of the bar. I also like the soft background music, it's a great place to have conversation. Even ideal for a business meeting.

Pampered is what I felt here. Seated outside on a warm, balmy winter day (same as Spring in Australia) with a delicious menu to choose from and beautiful garden surroundings. Modern and clean facilities.

Tamambo Karen Blixen is a wonderful gateway. The well manicured and spacious gardens gives a sense of serenity and tranquility. Not only is it a place of rejuvenation but also a place to get your creative juices flowing with the help of the timeless architecture and rich history. Let me not get to the food... I have one word, perfect! Prepared in good time and tasty! One thing that will linger in your mind after visiting Karen Blixen is the service. A service with a smile and rare dedication. They obviously have a loyal customer with me and my family!
