This is the place to stop in this area. Quaint and full of pilots (small plane and choppers), the British Army and tourists, it is a great spot to sit and soak up the local environs. The food is delicious and the quantities are big. Coffees and milk shakes are delicious. Look on the Specials Board as there are always... More

We had a twenty minute stop here on our trip from Lewa Downs to Nairobi Wilson. Time for an amazing cup of coffee and a "comfort stop". Food looked great and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I could spend my holidays just sitting on the terrace of this restaurant watching the planes fly in and out, the safari vehicles with their Masai and Samburu guides coming and going, and the tourists in their silly safari hats chowing down on their meals. Oh, and the food and service are really good! Not to be missed when passing... More

We stopped by for a bite and drinks. The food was good and the waitress was kind and efficient. Pity they don't wear name tags, as I would have liked to name her here. She was the one on duty on Sunday 18 Dec 2016 at around 6pm. They have a nice play area for kids and views to the... More
