What a great place for a feast. Definitely bring your appetite, and plan to hangout for a while, as the service is Brazilian style, where waiters bring around different cuts of BBQ-ed meat of your choosing. The meat is high quality, the seasonings are delicious, and they are expertly grilled. The quality here is much better than the more famous ...

A little restaurant out the back of Adam's Arcade. It has a very family owned feel, with chalkboard specials, homemade pasta, and d'canters of wine. The service is friendly, but can lag a bit, the ambiance feels warm and private, and people rave about the desserts.Popular withFoodies

This restaurant has a modern but unpretentious design with a long bar on the left side and a main dining area upstairs. Haru has about 10 tables and the size just right – it has an intimate feel that makes it a great place to go with friends for dinner or lunch. Thoroughly enjoyable! The staff were courteous and friendly, ...

Our waitress promised the spare ribs to be the Holy Grail of all earthly grill experiences. Well, she wasn’t too far off. The spur’s famous Baby Back ribs are basted in liters of barbeque sauce, and are therefore not the safest option if you show up in your crisp, white office shirt. But the ribs were perfectly prepared. I might ...
Art Caffe’ are purveyors of the most well-rounded cappuccino I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing. Let’s not forget that by the time I got around to the venue, I was already three cappuccinos deep and not exactly excited at the thought of any more caffeine. The service, while not bubbling with enthusiasm, was quick and efficient, and the coffee basically ...
Hot on the heels of Java is the South African entrant, known for its understated locales and – according to most people – its superior cappuccino. The service was pleasant, eliciting my largest tip of the day. The cappuccino was nicely presented, complete with the obligatory detailing atop the drink. The taste was mellower than Java’s – more medium roast ...
Situated on the ground floor of Yaya, it has plenty going on for it besides coffee. As chocolatiers, they have gourmet pastries, and decadent desserts, but every self-respecting sugar addict needs a decent cup to complement the treat. I decided to go with a takeaway on this particular visit, but the cappuccino I got made me wonder whether those on ...

Located in Westlands, the famous neighborhood for Indian food, this place is frequently deemed the best of all. I was impressed. Two stories of packed tables on a Wednesday night. Efficient service, delicious food, -- definitely try the prawns. Call ahead for reservations.Popular withFoodies

This is a hide-a-way where you can lick your city suffered wounds. There is a variety on the menu here; from the English beer battered fish and chips or steak and kidney pudding, to the North African grilled chicken with chili and lemon, served with steamed couscous. Another attraction of the Avalon are their appetizers/bittings, such as: Tostadas: toasted slices ...

We tried their Villa Belvedere Merlot. The bouquet was healthy and robust, but the taste was mild and didn’t have much of an impression. The ambience is perfect for enjoing a glass of red wine on a lazy evening, though. Try the low white lounge seats instead of the bar.

Looking for a meaty meal, I figured I couldn’t go wrong with a place that’s both a butchery and a bistro, and I was absolutely right. My grilled lamb strips were prepared with a dash of sweet and sour sauce, with some red pepper thrown in for a good measure. The side salad here is good that even vegetarians are ...Popular withVegetarian

You are forgiven for thinking that a Japanese restaurant in a dusty Nairobi suburb is a dodgy prospect. Believe me, though; I have traveled Africa extensively, and I suffer from frequent, chronic sushi cravings. Tokyo in Karen rocks it! You'll find the restaurant in an old manor, complete with a fireplace in the dining room and a bathtub in the ...Popular withFoodiesBusinessFamilies

This Seafood & Grill restaurant located by the beach, at the Diani Reef Beach Resort & Spa, serves sizzling fresh fish and meat, as well as light Mediterranean dishes for those in love with continental food. The restaurant ambience changes from informal in the afternoon, to formal in the evening. This is an ideal venue for a romantic candle light ...

When I ask for medium sirloin, that’s all you are obliged to bring me, really. A medium sirloin, though, is not what I got the first time around. When the reworked version of my meal eventually showed up, it went along way in redeeming the establishment in my eyes, and explaining why the place was packed to the rafters.Served on ...

A cool little known hole in the wall Korean spot with very friendly service, and a very home cooked feel. There is some seating outside, which is much nicer than sitting inside. I just had a small array of starters here, and some beers, but what they brought our for us was excellent. Definitely worth a further investigation.Popular withBudgetVegetarianFoodies

Well, they do brew their own beer, and it is a step-up from Tusker, but it is not much of a draw in the end. What is a draw, is the atmosphere, and the gigantic platter sized steaks they serve in their restaurant. A cool balcony, bar, and indoor seating. However it is super packed on the weekends, so if ...

Located a bit out of town just past the Village market, set outdoors in a overgrown field. It is a popular brunch spot, but they do all three courses. They also serve items hard to find elsewhere like good coffee, quesadillas, and pulled pork. Friendly service, great food, but but cheap.

A wonderful selection of fresh seafood, huge steaks and giant fishbowls of well liquor. It makes for a bit of a clashing atmosphere, as some come thinking they are in for fine dinning at a places with Japanese fighting fish swimming in the flower vases, while others seem to be on spring break downing huge fishbowls of booze. However, for ...
