i was there on one friday evening in December 2011, it was totally packed, the lady i found at the door received me very warmly and showed me to a table. the waiter who served me did not look interested though. The worst part was the food i ordered. i cannot really conclude that they have bad food maybe it is what i had. i ordered sword fish. the fish was horrendous as in really terrible. the serving was very generous but i only ate a very small part of it. its either their food is bad or sword fish is just not pleasant to eat.
I went last night and the food was awful! A delicate Malindi Sole had enough salt on it to cure a ham, it was tasteless and virtually inedible. The vegetables were just an excuse, boiled carrots and beans (same on every dish for four at the table). The service ws terrible, we had to ask the wait staff to do everything – please bring the menus please clear the table, please bring the bill etc. The owner just wandered around in a kind of daze, not once did he approach and ask if we were enjoying the food, etc. The Capital FM review was probably a pre-organized paid review, how else could Susan Wong have got it so wrong? This might be an acceptable Italian restaurant in Nairobi, anywhere else in the world and it would have close long ago! Cliff
