I’ve taken many international guests to Tamambo for lunch during our outings in Karen, and the food never disappoints. The portion sizes are generous, especially the salads, and the quality of the food has always been great. One tip - you will most likely be sitting outside for lunch or brunch, and it is often quite cold. We always bring extra shawls, but you can also request a chiminea be placed by your table. Great place to relax and enjoy a nice meal!

Amazing place even though i was bit a disappointed by the limited stuff i was able to see because renovations were just kicking-off and so much of the stuff was stored away for safe-keeping. I wish more efforts would be made to acquire most of the original pieces as most are currently replicas and can someone attend to the decaying wagons outside that are rotting away and with them a rich piece of history?

Had dinner here on two occasions, and loved it both times.
Start your evening in the bar or garden and enjoy a cocktail before going to the dinner table.
They have good variation in meals so you will certainly find something you like and they are delicious!Friendly staff and a relax atmosphere.
Do try the desserts.I recommend the vanilla icecream with chocolate fudge brownie.Yumm!
If you can't choose go for the sample platter with 5 different desserts.
