I always enjoy the fresh food at Aero Clubs Creative Kitchen. The staff are also very youthful and energetic who serve with a smile. Take note though, all drinks are purchased through the bar, meaning one sitting customer making two different payments (food and beverage) which I find cumbersome.

Wonderful atmosphere, good food in the resurant, nice garden area with a great view of the Wilson Airport Runway. Rooms are great comfortable and clean. A really good Nairobi stop over at a good price. Often fully booked so plan ahead.

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

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.

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.
