“This is a Must!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

We have been to this restaurant many times and still enjoy going. To go through the menu would mean eating there every night for a couple of months I would say, but it would be worth it! The last time we went was 4th January and we were not disappointed! Lots of space outside (or inside if you prefer) and protected by walls of shrubs so you have privacy. The waiters are attentive without being annoying, the food is absolutely fantastic - especially half a duck with mashed potatoes and the jumbo prawns from Tanzania) and the bread they serve once you have ordered is good too, with garlic butter or ordinary butter. It is easy to spend a couple of hours there enjoying the atmosphere and food. Have only drunk Tusker, so cannot comment on the wines, taste or price. The deserts are huge! Although I have only ever managed to have two in all the times my husband and I have been there. Overall the prices are very reasonable for what you get, neither cheap or very expensive. If you are in Nairobi, then this place is a must even for one meal. There is no need for a reservation.

“Pathetic Service! Overpriced~!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Went there for Christmas lunch in Junction. The place was not that packed. The waiter was not bothered to serve us, and I had to call him to give us the menus. Furthermore, took an hour and a half to get us the food. The waiter hurriedly brought us the bill without even asking if we require more.

Pathetic service and not so great food; my advise, if you want some great Italian pastas and pizzas, try Dolce Vita or even Art Caffe. This is just terrible!

“Expensive!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

They had a nice & cosy restaurant at old street in westlands but now they opened at 9west (inside new building). Looks expensive but always clowded. You need to book in advance. Wine selections are good.

“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

I have been here twice now and have enjoyed both meals -they have a very large menu with many options as well as specials. Quality of ingredients is good and food is tasty. Pretty expensive for Nairobi. This is not my go to place -but I definitely will go back and would recommend it to others.
