“Timeless elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

The decor is stunning, from the wood-inlay mosaic of ocean fish to the doors open over the garden. The service is over the top: unobtrusive yet timely. Then there's the food: wow. After a tasty salad (dates, pecans, green apple and blue cheese), I had the duck (cooked just right). Then, for dessert, I had the Crepes Suzette -- complete with table-side preparation just like it would have been done in the '50s. From the complementary glass of red wine to the "floor show" dessert, top rate.

“Brilliant food, brilliant service. A timeless classic.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful experience there back in May. Best food in Africa. Met the chef, a charismatic Irish chap, with a passion for his work that shone through in the menu. Truly humbling when a chef with such dignity and pride cares about his customers so much. Will always come back! A true classic, European cuisine and standards!

“If you like excellent food in an excellent ambience-this is the place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Excellent ambience-excellent food-first class service-that sums it up. The dutch chef they have now has gone back to some of the old recepies. HURRAH!!
The sommelier however missed completly and recommended a wine which would benefit of 3-4 years more. Although he said it would taste like the welcome drink. We had to pay for his mistake!
But all in all: we are comming back!

“Great place for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

One of the best restaurants in Nairobi. Clearly a fan of this place, but you do pay for it. Pango is pretty pricey, but they do deliver with a solid menu and great service. I've been a few times and don't think I've been disappointed yet. It's also a great place for a special occasion. If you do get there early, try having a drink in the wine cellar. A fun way to start off the night.
