Kenya Restaurants

  • A beast of a feast

    Carnivore is an exotic restaurant serving exotic dishes. Things start with "Dawa"..a mixture of Vodka mixed with some local spices, mint & other special things. Legs of lambs, Pork & Beef sausages,Exotic Ostrich & Crocodile, Ox balls & many more meats. Staff was just fantastic, almost forcing everybody to freak out. Even Vegetarian food was real...

  • Beach Cave

    A short walk along the beach from Diani Sea Lodge or make a booking (which is advisable to avoid disappointment) and you will be collected and dropped off.A wonderous experience of dining in a series of naturally formed coral caves, it all begins as you enter via a stair case down into a candle lit cavern.Men are required to wear long trousers,...

  • Beach Bar

    Be warned the plates are piled high, pizza, pasta, plus a variety of other dishes. Forty Thieves is a great meeting place, live music each Sunday lunch time, the beach, discos, and sail boats for hire. Not to mention a fantastic location to enjoy a meal against the backdrop of the ocean lapping at the soft white sands of Diani Beach.

  • Amazing culinary experience

    Carnivore is a culinary experience, worthy of Pantagruel (Fran?ois Rabelais personage), even if you are vegetarian, as I use to be.The waiters come to your table and cut before your eyes the wild game meat with their Maasai swords: giraffe neck, crocodile tail, zebra leg, elephant trunk, impala ribs, ostrich, antelope, crocodile?until you say...

  • Lets Cocktail . . .

    As we entered the Carnivore restaurant, we were led to a big table where the whole group could sit (18 persons).Of course we started in style, with a delicious cocktail. I had chosen my favourite one: a Margarita.Everyone found its favourite taste, there was a big range on cocktails like White Mischief, Pina Colada, Bloody Mary, Banana Daiquiri,...

  • A Beast of Feast

    Already as we entered the Carnivore restaurant, we had seen the big grill filled with lots of meat.But after the cocktail we started with the Soup of the day, and it was a light vegetable soup.And then it was time for the battle with the meat.Before my trip, I had read some reports here on Vt on the Carnivore, and I must add something. . Nowadays...

  • A Feast for a Beast

    As I told you before, they are not serving real game anymore in the Carnivore.We started with a great slice of Beef, then beef sausages, Lamb, Pork spare ribs and Chicken.Then came the Turkey, the Camel meat, Ostrich and finally Crocodile meat.All these meat dishes were served on big traditional Masai swords. These big swords were put above your...

  • A festivity for meat lovers

    The last evening of our Kenya - Uganda trip, we stopped in the very famous meat restaurant The Carnivore in Nairobi.That was before we went to the Nairobi airport in order to catch our flight back home.I found it a great way to end our African trip, and to eat together with the whole group (veggies included). The Meat dishes

  • Romantic coral cave restaurant

    Alli Barbour is a unique dining experience within a natural coral cave. Its open to the night stars and on a clear night, you can dine under the Southern Cross. The restaurant offers a largely seafood menu with an extensive wine list. The food was fine but the magical aspct of an evening is the surroundings. The ochre/pink coral is subtly lit...

  • Lebanese + Sushi

    Right so like the title review says, this is a Lebanese restaurant which also does good sushi. That just shows how popular the japanese cuisine is in Nairobi.The restaurant has a garden ambience and service can be relaxed (read: Slow if you're in a hurry).The mezze starters Hummus, Baba Ganoush etc are authetic and go well with pre-dinner...

  • Lovely Outdoor Garden

    As the name suggests (It's named for a famous scottish novel) the restaurant is owned and frequented by the expat community of Karen & Nairobi.The Indoor theme is Moroccan / Arabian.. with low seating and lots of rugs thrown all over the place.The ambience outside is lovely on a bright sunny day. It's shaded by big trees and apart from the 1...

  • Mo Sushi

    Perhaps the most authentic of the many sushi restaurants in Nairobi. The food is very fresh and the service is efficient and fast.The restaurant has an indoor section and an outside patio area. Ask for the outside area. The inside is spacious but has more of a chinese restaurant feel. With shiney lacquered everything.I've always believed that...

  • Ethiopian in Kenya

    Like most of the upper end restaurants in Nairobi, Habesha is part outdoor and past enclosed.The outdoor area is much nicer actually the Indoor has peeling paint and suffers from the regular maintanence problems.So if your making a reservation be sure to ask for an outdoor table. The garden is full of illuminated trees and there are some nice cozy...

  • Kenyan Goodies

    Located in Nairobi City Center. Simmers is a good place to drop by for some mid-afternoon beers and a bite to eat. A great place with outdoor seating and occasional music. It's full of locals who work in the neighboring office bldgs and shoppers discussing their bargains of the day.Though we went there in the day and it was relaxed, I believe it...

  • Real Nice Gardens

    The restaurant is located in a sprawling garden. Very modern architecture with a flat ranch style restaurant which completely opens onto the garden.We had booked the private room which seats around 15 people and has a dedicated seating area for pre-dinner cocktails along with it's own access to the garden.Sushi is the most popular cuisine with the...

  • You'd think you were in India

    So I've had my share of good Indian good and bad Indian food. Moral - I know my Indian Food.And Haandi does some very good Indian Food.The dishes are authentic with fresh ingredients. It helps that kenya has very similar climate to India and hence most of the greens and pulses are readily available. Also Nairobi has a big Indian diaspora (as does...

  • Wifi and Coffee

    Very stylish in line with european and american coffee houses. In some ways even better. They have wifi and the meals are hearty enough to make for a good lunch.The coffee selection is quite good and they have a bunch of african brews which really aren't available this fresh anywhere in the west. There is a gorgeous outside porch area the only...

  • Inappropriate Advertising

    There are two types of touts who plague these forums. The first blatantly advertise themselves by saying "I had this wonderful experience when I traveled with blah blah blah"...The other lot solicit clients by suggesting they are about to "undertake a trip... and would some other travelers care to join them"?

  • Best Meat in Kenya!

  • Kenyan cuisine

    Not many traditional restaurants can be found in Nairobi or Mombasa, at least I didn't seen much of them. Big towns offers, more or less, international cuisine. As for safari lodges around, the cuisine is mixed, both Kenyan and international and I found it very good. I had privilege to visit the home of one my Kenyan friend and in that occasion...

  • The place to eat different African...

    You can eat:- Giraffe is like a very succulent pork cut. It tastes better if it is slightly pink.- Waterbuck is really moist and tender. - Zebra is slightly tough and surprisingly gamey.- Hartebeest requires a substantial amount of chewing.- Crocodile. Like fish but looks like chicken and doesn´t taste that well.- Warthog served as little...

  • Best boozer in Wundanyi

    Bog standard african bar gets quite lively at night. Bar staff were well helpfull when I was there. There's not a lot else in Wundanyi to do in the night apart from having a few scoops and this was definately the best place in town on my visit. Beer again they do serve food but me being a veggie I give the meat only menu a miss. Name any part of a...

  • Outdoor seating for Lunch!

    During our stop-over in Lake Nakuru National Park, as we drove from Lake Naivasha to Molo, we enjoyed a great little outdoor lunch (one must keep the children fed and happy!). We had some simple sandwiches washed down by a Tusker beer in my case and flavoured drinks for the children. It is always nice to eat outdoors to savour the African...

  • Nairobi Dining

    I cannot remember why we picked this particular hotel, but the downtown Fairview Hotel in Nairobi had beautiful gardens for wandering about in or taking afternoon tea on the lawns. My wife and I also really appreciated the old colonial custom of having a separate children's meal at 6 PM in the dining room! When it was time for the adults at 7 PM,...

  • Breakfast at the Hippo Pool

    Breakfast in the Kimana Game Reserve was something special, that is for sure.How often in live do you get the opportunity to have something to eat next to a pool with some hippos in it? Not that they are that quiet, from time to time they break the surface of the pool to loudly grunt at each other or blow water as if they were whales ...And you are...

    Hemingway DinnerOne of the meals you get in the Kimana Reservation. Served in their big tent, in front a camp fire (huge and tended by a Masai) next to the small river.

    Yeah! I survived 30 days on a truck through south-eastern Africa!! Here I am celebrating with some of the human participants on the tour, in the restaurant of the hotel we were staying in at the outskirts of Nairobi.
