Incredible seafood platter. Beautiful presentation. The best staff we have encountered in Kenya. And the best calamari I have had anywhere in the world. Plus… good wine and seating in the garden.

From making the booking with joy (name suits her perfectly );to being serviced everything was perfect! Ambience compliments the delicious grilled lobster (highly recommended) . The chef came to the table himself and sent two complimentary starters (both healthy ) with flavorful dips. A must...try for the sea food lovers and brilliant service by the whole staff.More

The beautiful Fairmont Hotel has a Tatu restaurant at its disposal. In which I had dinner for 14 days of my stay and there was not a second for me to think about changing the dream of an evening meal! An amazing place with very...attentive and pleasant staff!! The wine list pleasantly surprises with its assortment! But special attention should be paid to the chef Gitau, a magnificent master of his craft, who has mastered culinary art perfectly!! The incredible octopus that I ate in the evenings, the awesome lobster and the telapia from Lake Victoria, it's unforgettable!! Thank you very much for these wonderful moments!! Michelin stars are not enough for the restaurant absolutely deservedly!!More

This spot was amazing when we went there. First, the lovely waiters meet you and direct you to your seat. From there the wonderful and energetic staff give you the menu. The menu is full of different options, but we got 2 beef tenderloins and...the salmon. We also got the sashimi and the carpaccio as appetizers. The staff served us potato crisps with some spicy sauce. The carpaccio and sashimi arrived and they were both exceptional and wonderful. The beef and sashimi arrived and our waiter arrived to give us a description of the food. Both courses were absolutely wonderful. We later had dessert. I would recommend the Chocolate Terrine which has coffee creme and tastes heavenly. We were served the desert and we were finally served some Belgian chocolate. This was an amazing lunch. I would recommend for a chill lunch with amazing service and foodMore
