“Great Restaurant, Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

The dinner buffet at the Kempinski's Cafe Villa Rosa had a wide variety of dishes and the food was great! The staff was efficient, professional, warm and very friendly and knowledgable of the food items on the menu. The ambience was warm and inviting. Great dinner experience. We'll definitely be back!

“Great Ambiance, tasty food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We had French fries and burgers and some drinks but it was the very warm ambiance that caught our attention. The Balcony Bar had a wide variety of drinks but quite pricey as you'd expect. We'll definitely be back!

“Top Notch Lunch Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

The lunch buffet offer at the Kempinski Villa Rosa (in Westlands) is excellent. There is a wide variety of food (vegetarian and non-vegetarian) and the additional desserts, salads, condiments, cheeses, etc. make the overall experience worth the price. The wait staff is refined, extremely professional, and genuinely polite. My hat's off to the Kempinski kitchen.

“Pricey ...good food, great environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

The foods amazing and probably only next to Carnivore in Kenya but extremely expensive as you can expect.
Like most other places in Kenya, their menu also has ans Indian inclination.

“A great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I went with a friend for lunch on a Saturday and fell in love with this place. From the ambience, to the courteous staff right from the entrance, to the reception, to the restaurant....everyone is excellent!!!!

The veg panini was good but i love the fries....mc'donalds style. Cocktails are good...slightly pricey but worth it....! Only thing was we waited almost 15-20 minutes to get our cocktails. However, minus the wait....EXCELLENT place!! Cant wait to go back :)
