“Bad service spoilt an otherwise good evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We had a company event here & everything else other than the service was good.

The food was delicious, the indoor setting was lovely, nice ambiance in the outdoor "banda's"

This was all brought down by the wait staff - we couldnt get anything on time. They were so confused, i gave up on getting juice after asking different servers severally. The bar tender couldnt open a wine 2L box & someone from our team had to do it. Once we were done with dinner we were left with dirty tables.

It was such a let down after an otherwise lovely evening

“A green oasis in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

A beautiful restaurant on Argwings Kodhek Road in Kilimani. The restaurant consists of a number of Majlis baldachins spread-out in a park-like garden each named after one of the islands of The Seychelles offering shade and coolness. The landscaping is superb, staff is very attentive and they will remember your preferred beverages when you next visit. The food is delicious and very well presented offering an international mix of dishes from Kenya, Italy, USA and India. Their "all you can eat BBQ ribs"-nights are very popular, so advanced reservation is advised. Prices are quite decent. I can highly recommend this place.
