Beautiful location and very serene. Great place for lunch and a coffee with some very nice mix of items on the menu for veg and non-veg. Staff are very friendly and attentive, general service is very good. They have a very nice gallery and shop where they sell a variety of items and figurines made of bronze, extremely intricate and well detailed, prices are quite up there but possibly worth it for the quality of the work and how unique each piece is. Well worth the trip.

Great gardens, ideal for little ones to let off steam and run around. Outdoor or indoor seating. Varied menu. Inc vegetarian options. Licensed bar. 290/- for a local beer. Wi-Fi available. Clean toilets. Lots of bronze cast and bronze art work including jewellery. Also paintings mostly Wild life for sale. It's a bit pricey but even if you can't afford the stuff it's still worth a visit and a browse. Allow at least an hour or two to appreciate all that they have. Free parking. Located not far from Langate Road. 5 minutes drive from Galleria shopping mall.

Stunning bronze art work of all kind, from very small to really huge, all accurately elaborated. Unfortunately also nothing for a small budget, but the price you pay is worth what you get. I have seen the production process, too, very amazing! Highly to recommand, because all four venues are very close: If you visit Matbronze, also have a look or a lunch/dinner at the Ngong House, the giraffe center (nice for kids) and the elephant orphanage.

This gallery is well worth a visit if you like wildlife and art. The bronzes are fantastic and there is a very large variety to appeal to many tastes and budgets. Large items for tens of thousands of US$ right down to jewellery, key rings and also prints for a few dollars. Based on the prices of bronzes I have seen in other places around the world my impression is that the prices are very reasonable.

Gallery is spacious and well laid out, beautiful gardens (we saw Hartlaub's turaco, a stunning bird), good restrooms and pretty good cafe for food and drink.

I wanted to pay for food in dollars and there was no problem and was given a good exchange rate. This compared very favourably with one other place in Nairobi which was the opposite.
