“Poor Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

It was a busy Friday night, and the service was very slow and the waiters were overwhelmed. It took 15mins for us to receive our drinks, and another 20mins for them to take our food order. The food was good but some items were missing from the menu that night, not sure why.

“Best food best service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

We all enjoyed the seafood (i have posted pics). It was fantastic. My mouth wanted everything on the menu. I prefer the dinner menu to the lunch menu though both are awesome.
Stephene was the best, he infected us with a smile and also recommended very good wine.
This place is still my fav for seafood in Nairobi.

“Great seafood matched with a useful wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Others may have felt their red snapper a little dry, but the mixed traditional fish stew was first class, as was the stuffed squid. Their list matches this with an interesting range of white wines, with the Sauvignon blancs standing out. But it isn't cheap, but arguably is good value if they maintain that quality of cooking.

“Probably still the best place for seafood in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

I have eaten here many times. The food is always good, and shows creativity and new ideas. As far as seafood in Nairobi goes there has always been the Tamarind, but it is badly located and not as attractive and stylish as Seven. And, I'd say the food at Seven is much more modern. So definitely a great place to eat fresh seafood in Nairobi, in a pleasant and modern ambience.

“seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had tastiest seafood platter crispy and very fresh. We were a party of three and all were happy with their choices especially the seafood lasagna. Has good
selection of seafood which is delivered fresh daily according to the management. Menu quite comprehensive so no lack of choice. Staff attentive and efficient with pleasant manner and good service. Great restaurant with lovely ambience.
