I had an incredible experience at Giardino. I was with a group of 12 others who stayed for 5 weeks. We were given exceptional service at all times. The accommodation was clean, pretty and suited our needs very well. On occassions there was no water in the rooms, but the grounds team fixed this immediately. The hotel's facilities allowed us to really feel at home; we used certain rooms for meetings, we had full use of the guest kitchens and often enjoyed our meals around the lovely tables in the well kept gardens. We also ate in the restaurant, which was a delightful experience. Ther service and quality of fresh food was a delight!
This place is a hidden gem, and I will definitely return. Highly recommended!

Since i lived in Rome for a year i was hesitant to believe the raves about this restaurant but the fact is, i felt as if i was in Rome when eating the excellent food served at giardino. I had octopus salad which could match any in rome. I also had the seafood sampler as maincourse and it was excellent. I think giardino is about the only place in kenya where you can trust the managers word for that his housewine is good as well. Infact there is no need to look at the winelist, just as i would have ordered food in Rome. This place is not to be missed if you like italian style seafood and fresh food at that

I just returned from a six day stay at the recently opened hotel attached to the Giardino Restaurant. The food experience in this restaurant will put many michelin star restaurants to shame! Prepared with love by the head Italian Chef and crew, the presentation of each course was just as much the fantastic experience as the taste sensation that followed every bite. The staff are welcoming, friendly and the place resonates a genuine desire to make your visit as perfect as can be. The owner, Fabrizio, is always there to make sure everything is in perfect order is an excellent host.
The hotel was secure, clean and topped off with a lovely pool to swim in and lounge at. The breakfast was freshly prepared each morning to the wishes of each guest by friendly and sincere staff. A big thanks to you all for the truly wonderful stay and delicious food!

We visited Giardino because of Tripadviser reviews and we weren't disappointed. In fact we liked it so much we returned a few nights later.

The venue is comfortable and spacious and the staff very friendly and attentive.

The menu (Italian only) is great and the did fantastic. We hade pizza one night and then pasta the next visit.

The manager is not only beautiful to look at and extremely generous but he is well organised and demands The same from his team. This creates a standard of dining not often experienced, it really was a pleasure during our holiday and I'm sure if you go you will feel the same.
