“Rrroaaar”

The place was alive with chatter and the food was just what he doctor ordered! It's even better if you go as a group - not so much a romantic place in my humble opinion

“A meaty experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014

This afternoon I was privileged to have lunch at this famous restaurant...

The food was some creative salads e.g feta and melon salad, cous cous salad among many more. The served a brown bread with butter - the bread was so so.

For the main event / main courses it was meat after meat after meat till you drop..... crocodile, rump steak, grilled chicken, pork, lamb etc etc

With all the sauces - garlic,mint, chilli etc in front of me all I could do was to savour the experience with a fantastic glass of red wine.

My waiter - Ezekiel was a darling, took great care of me - an affable guy!

Yes, I would recommend this restaurant any day for a special experience / special occasion.

Good stuff Carnivore.

Perfect ambiance and variety of well grilled Game meat. A perfect place to wine and dine and best discotheque where one can party and relax.

“An Absolute Must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2014

I'm not one to write reviews, but my visit to the Carnivore Restaurant was above and beyond and warranted a writeup. My dinner was unforgettable and it was certainly the most memorable evening of my travels through Africa.

From the delicious, local Dawa drink (I highly recommend it) to the tasty, large variety of gaming meat that is served, the entire evening was a production and presentation of the finest food in the world. The servers were attentive, prompt, and delightful, and the ambiance was lively, yet intimate. The atmosphere was the perfect combination of a local experience and an educational immersion.

I highly recommend this restaurant as a destination must. I will certainly be back in the near future!

“Entertaining”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2014

A very good restaurant, but more for the entertaining factor. The presentation of food was fun. Would have enjoyed more exotic offerings, but most of what we did eat was good, although ordinary meat.
