We were spoilt for choice, being a partyof four including two kids, we were shown to our table, and served promptly. The food was perfect, and the menu offers an array of meals including seafood, steaks and the best burgers in town.

I have enjoyed great times in the lovely gardens, for coffee, lunch. and dinner parties with family and friends. The staff are friendly. The meals are always freshly prepared and delicious.

This is definitely my "go to" restaurant for peace and tranquility.

Lunch was very good and the staff was very accommodating. It was a beautiful setting and the specimen trees were all very interesting. The history of Karen was also very interesting.

Maybe the expectations I had were too high, following the ecstatic reviews I found on TripAdvisor. The gardens and the setting in general are nice and convey a relaxed and elegant vibe. The food is decent but far from spectacular; I ordered the Kikapu Kuku (fried chicken) which was served with chips, tartare sauce and lime wedges. All in all a comfortable afternoon at a equitable price, but there are better places to eat in Nairobi if you are looking for a WOW.
