“A nice place out of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Its a beautiful place tacked out of town from the every day hustle and bustle!! The environment has a country side feel and the beauty of it is crowned by a bridge that you need to cross.

We enjoyed was there for a team building function.

“Very nice setting in panoramic colonial house on top of an escarpment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

The view from the terrace is what makes this place special. You have to pass a bridge suspended over an escarpment and a river to reach the restaurant from the parking lot and the terrace offers a view on a rocky cliff with a river at its bottom. The place is just on the border with Nairobi national park, in a colonial style house, offering accomodation, paintball and team building activities in an area which was once used for polo. The food was in my opinion very good, tasty, fresh, well presented and correctly priced (less than any decent restuarant you can find in Nairobi different Malls). The location is few minutes away from the Sheldrick's elephant trust, so it could be a nice idea to stop over for lunch after the morning show over there.

“Super lunch and great ambiance!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

I'd been there for lunch a year ago and had a pleasant experience. While scouting for an overnight out of town trip, decided to check the reviews and got apprehensive from the more recent not so good reviews - apprehensive enough to only make for a lunch visit. The lunch experience was great and the service was exemplary. The food was as good as the first time and of course the view there is remarkable. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had a pleasant experience. Perhaps service had slipped for a while there in the past few months but they are for sure trying really hard to redeem their trip advisor ratings. And that's a good thing for them and customers. Keep it up. Would definitely recommend.
