“Cool, though wasn't blown away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The food was good, service was good, atmosphere was pretty cool, I enjoyed the planes in the background. All around a good place but wasn't the best food I've had

“Good food, nice view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Went there with our little family and some friends. Kids had a wonderful time playing in the play area and watching the planes. Made for a lovely sunday brunch. Looking forward to going back.

“An Interesting Place; Great Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I wanted to visit this place and have lunch early on in the planning; then I read "West With the Night" and Beryl Markham talks of landing here, the "club" and living in a cottage nearby. That was the 1930's and much has changed.

But, the club room at the Aero Club where the bar is, screams stories and more stories; legends and lies; drunken singing, carousing and hanger flying.

Of the burgers I tried in Africa, this as the best. Be sure and get a baseball cap too and one for any pilot you know.

“fun place for family and friends, but overpriced mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

went there for lunch with some fellow tourists and some local friends. The place is very nice and has great outdoor seating in a cute garden. Lots of kids where running around and climbing on the playground-like contraptions they had installed. Nice atmosphere, but the food was pretty boring. The menu consisted completely of Western food and the quality was just alright. You go there for the company and atmosphere, not for the meal.
