We were visiting someone in Limuru and this was recommended as a lunch option. Although a bit faded I think it would be a fine place for a cup of tea or a cocktail overlooking the garden in the back, but the food is not good. The menu was suspiciously broad and our group stuck to toasted ham and cheese sandwiches. We waited ages. The sandwiches made in a Breville style sandwich press were made with so-so ham and absolutely laden with margarine - not very nice to put it nicely. On the upside, we've had many chuckles over those toasties! Restaurant food quality in Nairobi, etc. is generally pretty middle of the road so I wan't expecting the moon. Stick to drinks.

Although the setting is very beautiful, the poor service will stop me from coming back here again. The food was adequate, but nothing special, but the staff were extremely slow to respond to requests, and some were even unfriendly. When a cockroach was discovered in someone's coffee, and tinfoil in another person's soup, the staff seemed to think we were fussy to complain. If you would like a day out of Nairobi in this area, much better to go with someplace like Kiambethu.

On a weekend or on a weekend afternoon, this is a beautifull garden in an area of coffe and tea plantations. The terrace is nice, the food is great and the country club aspect is a treasure.

Their christmas lunch is absolutely and chic. They treat you like royalty and even as you enjoy the country air, fresh and crisp the food comes just as fresh and crisp.

Just seemed very slow to get service. Very laid back. Pretty, but not extensive. The drive to Kentmere was beautiful and better than the location itself.
