“Good food in a lovely outdoor setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were driven here by our tour guide after a visit to the giraff center. To be honest we didnt have great expectations as we suspected this would be a tourist trap. It is true that next door there is a large craft shop but a rather nice one with individual shops within the shop. Good quality products.
The restaurant itself is outdoors. We went for lunch and the terrace is lovely and shaded.
The biggest surprise was the friendly staff and the good fresh food.
As we didnt want much we shared samossa with feta cheese with crab with a ginger soya sauce and a chicken breast wrap with fresh avocado dip and freshly cut chips with skins on. They also have real coca cola from a real glas bottle served with a lemon and ice.
It was very tasty and fresh .
We paid 2190 shillings which is about 19 euro.
Its worth popping in for lunch if you are in the area and want to avoid the usual crowded tourist places.
