Well located for a beautiful view over the lake, especially at suset. Service was attentive, if a little slow, even though we were the only ones there. Food is very cheap, but absolutely terrible. On the plus side, it is fun to say you are a member of a yacht club! (just don't tell anyone it cost only Ksh500 and... More

We were a big group of people (around 20) having lunch at the Yacht Club. The scenery is amazing due to the lakeside location of the club. I have been here a number of times and nothing much seems to have changed over time (for better or for worse). The food is excellent - I would highly recommend the butter... More

One of the best kept secrets in Kisumu. Situated a short walk from impala park on well manicured gardens with overhanging bandas on the lake. Variety on the menu with poor service, but all this is forgiven due to the beauty of the place.

We went here regularly to have lunch and dinner and must say well maintained and this club is really good. My young kids loved the place and went out on the lake which was also very good as seen some hippos as well. Also visited the old harbour place and history was quite interested. Loved it as peaceful.

My wife and I visited this place for a refreshing weekend by the lake. And despite not being members we were allowed to access the premises and enjoy the services. However, the restaurant from the way things were handled seemed poorly managed. The workers didn't seem motivated and the services we required or good food was not to the expected... More

This is a members club Andover can get in by paying $5 as temporary membership. The yatch club has an enviable location and we guessed with the number of bridal groups that it's a popular location for wedding photo shoot. The food is average and not pricey, if you have a chance order the dhania chicken, it wasn't bad at... More

Every year that we visit Kisumu, we definitely go have a meal at Yacht club. It's on Lake Victoria and very scenic. Sunsets are a must there! It's good value for money and good vegetarian choices. I like the "kawaida" snack there. Service can be quite slow so make sure you keep chasing them.
