“5 pieces of ravioli for Kshs. 1,300!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Ridiculously small portions. I am a 5''1 lady who doesn't need to eat much but you can imagine my surprise when I ordered the Ravioli with Spinach and Ricotta to only get FIVE pieces of the pasta on my plate - and that's a meal without any meat.

Someone I was with ordered the lamb chops, which was about the same price as my pasta, and although he found that portion small, at least the food filled his plate.

Imagine if this 6''9/75 KG male companion I was with had been the one who had ordered my pasta!

And the Manager was completely unhelpful. When we complained that the portion of the pasta was too small, he simply said "But they should have put five pieces, did they put less than that?" When I pointed out that that was exactly the problem - that five pieces was too little, he promised to escalate the matter with the Chef but we never got any feedback.

Stay away from the pasta - portions are too small. Order a meal with a lot of meat to get your money's worth.

“Disappointing - especially for the high price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went there after shopping, had some pizza and wine. Both overpriced, pizza took 45 min to arrive and was not up to expectations. Very average at best. Not recommended.

“Eating out at Mediterraneo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Mediterraneo, the unique Italian experience in the heart of Nairobi, brings you an unforgettable experience of true Italian dining. Set in its warm colours, it takes you back to the streets of Florence. Indulge in the specialties of great seafood, pasta and vintage wines.

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is one of the greatest restaurants, I went to the Junction and their meals are just next level, with great service to make one feel great. With this kind of special treatment and great meal you definitely get memorable moments.

“Always Great Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

It tends to be busy... and I hate the parking lot at Junction.. but... WELL WORTH the hassle to get there. Have never had a bad meal, and the service is good as well!
