Reviewed May 14, 2013

On our first day in Kenya we went to this restaurant and liked it very much. Could have been also the newness of it all, but we had fun on the outdoor terrace, ate all sorts of types of meat, drank fruit drinks and, all in all, had a great experience. Also, it is very reasonably priced

“Meat!!!!!!! Nom Nom Nom”

If you love meat this is the place to eat!!!! We went there had a Tusker and let the meat come to us. The staff walk around with swords that have a large chunk of whatever animal is cooking the meat was delicious.

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”
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!!”
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.
