- 1Langata Road, Near Wilson Airport, PO Box 56685, City Square 00200, Nairobi, Kenyan Regions, Kenya4.516 reviews
Although It's been a decade since I ate here, Carnivore will always stand out as one of the most memorable dining experiences of my life. In a style similar to Brazilian churrascarias, freshly grilled meat is constantly carved onto your plate until you say "when". However, at Carnivore these are no ordinary cuts of meat, but rather fresh crocodile, ostrich, ...Popular with

This is my vote for the one thing you must do if you go to Diani, but make reservations at least the night before because the venue is small and the word is already out on this place. It is set underground in a cave made of limestone and petrified corals. It is illuminated with a candle lite glow, and ...Popular with

Amazing freshly cooked pasta, on maybe the most extensive Italian menu in town. Conveniently located right in downtown Nairobi. They also serve seafood, and have a large wine list. Not cheap though. They take online reservations.Popular with
- 5P. O. Box 4289 Lenana Rd, Nairobi, Kenya42 reviews
Is a chain restaurant in Nairobi, offering fresh pasta, gourmet pizza, an extensive wine list, delicious fish specials and tasteful outdoor seating. The service however is of variable quality, and to me the the quality of the food is not inline with the high prices on the menu.

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 ...

Often billed as the best restaurant in the area, eating here is just a great experience. The food is gourmet and innovative, the services is great, and the you can either sit inside with stained glass lighting, outside woven between the trees, or next to a open fire. If you can make it out to Karen, make sure you plan ...Popular with
- 8The Fairmount Norfolk, Harry Thuku Rd, Central Business District41 review
Located at the Fairmount Hotel, the prices here make it a place that cannot be visited too often. However, the food is delicious and the service is excellent. In a city where everything is expensive, and sometimes good, this place leaves you feeling like you paid for a high quality meal. The fish and steak are both recommended.Popular with

Super cool little start-up on the first floor of the iHub building. Great coffee, and they do burritos and other foreign fare for lunch. Super friendly staff, and a great outside balcony to enjoying their creations under the sun. Definitely a spot to go hang out with the creative up-and-coming from the tech world too.Popular with

Go for some drinks after work. Friendly bar service, and plenty of comfortable places to relax. The spicy chicken wings are excellent (could use some bigger portions though). The dinner menu is fairly standard, everything seems decent.

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 ...

Recently opened at the end of 2013, it is an attempt to bring high quality pizza to Nairobi. Many have tried, but non have stood out until 360 launched. Offering some creative and delicious flavors, like spicy lamb sausage, chimichurri beef, and pesto with rocket. They also have some great juices, coffee, sierra beer on tap and some homemade pastas. ...Popular with
- 14Mbagathi Ridge, Nairobi, Kenya41 review
A super classy establishment where you can stay, or duck in for a meal if you make reservations in advance. There is a very decently sized pool, an elitist bar upstairs and every Tuesday night is half priced steaks which are some of the best in Nairobi for sure.

Far from authentically Mexican, it is also much closer than one usually gets on the African continent. While the food is not quite up to par to satisfy a fixing for Mexican, the drinks certainly are, and they might have the most extensive tequila collection in town. Good place for some sun downers with friends.Popular with

This coffee house standard bearer is known for its high – quality coffee. And it certainly lived up to its reputation during my visit. The service was immediate, even though I called in the mid-morning downtime. The bonus to my Java House experience was that my cappuccino was paired with a chocolate croissant the size of a small loaf of ...
- 18Karen Road, Nairobi, Kenya
The menu is now a fusion of the popular Tamarind and Tamambo dishes giving Karen residents a chance to sample the delicious Tamarind signature seafood. Diners have a fine choice of different areas for lunch or dinner. There is the cosy and redecorated indoor restaurant with adjacent outdoor terrace and garden, also being remodeled, for a la carte dining.

No sushi bar can hold a candle to Onami's ambience – it's unbeatable. Their Kuruma Ebi – salted jumbo prawns – is fantastic. And if you feel like something from their grill menu, the Losumaki, an entrecote served with green beans, is very good.

They are known for their Lebanese cuisine, but their seafood gets our vote. Why? Because their spicy prawn tempura is the best, they have excellent service and you can wash down your food with real Japanese sake. Of course, it will cost you, but what the hell, you only live once.
