“One of best places to eat in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Came here with my wife whilst on business trip. Great service. Be brave and try all the meats you probably won't get a chance elsewhere. sides are a bit limited but hence the name carnivore. A great place meat lovers like us.

“Eat everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I went here at the end of a film shoot with the crew, it was a great experience, particularly trying giraffe and crocodile and other game meats - one of our party was vegetarian and had a sad time, I'm afraid

“A MUST VISIT for all that love meat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I love my food, no doubt about that. I especially love meat, more so if it is well cooked!
The experience I had at the Carnivore was truly memorable. The food is in plenty and tasty! The waiters are all very pleasant and efficient in their duties. I really cannot capture in words the good experience I had there.
To top it off, there was some great dancing after my meal. Kenyans really know how to have a good time. I went for dinner here on my last night in Nairobi and I must admit this was the best way to end my Kenya safari.
To everyone at the Carnivore, keep up the good job and ahsante sana.

“Meat Lovers Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My family and I visit this restaurant whenever we are in Nairobi ( YES ITS THAT GOOD), Superb fresh meats, from chicken to select game meats, barbecued on huge charcoal pits. every table has a tiny flag, as long as the flag is standing, the meats will keep flowing to your table, an army of waiters each holding a Masai spear with meat straight from the pits keep doing the rounds on the tables until you surrender! and you will! The service is incredible, prices are VERY reasonable, and its family friendly.
