best nairobi restaurants for dinner

1. Tamarind Hotel

If you are looking for a good night out and want to enjoy world class seafood, then Tamarind is the best place to go. The hotel is located in a quiet place where you will feel like you are at home. (You can take a taxi to get there if you don’t have a car) –

The staff are really warm and know what they are selling. The green leafy vegetables that are eaten make Tamarind a healthy food. On Fridays they have a band that plays good music which I enjoy. Their prices are low but believe me, it’s worth it.

2. Talisman

Talisman is one of the best hotels in Nairobi if not the city. I must say that its garden makes it a perfect choice for a romantic dinner. The food here is outstanding and their wine list is extensive. It is also a great place to receive friends and family for special occasions or clients in town for business. It’s not cheap but you’ll be happy with the effort.

Remember to book a table, especially on weekends. He works very hard.

Suitable for couples or groups of friends.

3. Fogo Gaucho

If you have a big appetite and love meat, then Fogo Gaucho is the best restaurant you can visit in Nairobi. Fogo is similar to the famous Carnivore but on a smaller scale and closely related. It is a Brazilian restaurant with a standard menu of different types of meat and some side dishes.

What I like most about Fogo Gaucho is the fact that the waiters come as long as your card turns to the green side, which means “give me more”, they will be there every minute passing by!

The variety of meats on offer is great, from grilled fish, crocodile, top meat to chicken thighs. Perfect location for family and friends.

4. The View Hotel

It is located on the 24th floor of the Mövenpick Hotel in Westlands. The hotel offers spectacular views of Parklands, Upper Hill, Westlands, Karura Forest and Nairobi city. They have a menu featuring Mediterranean dishes and labels from Switzerland.

You can reserve a table for dinner at View from Tuesday to Sunday from 6:00 pm to 11:00 p.m.

5. The Lord Erroll gourmet restaurant

Lord Erroll is located in one of the best residences in Nairobi; Runda and 15 minutes from the city. The staff are very friendly. Their food menu is also extensive and offers a variety of food.

The decor of this beautiful hotel is amazing, especially if you manage to sit on the terrace looking at the grass. The perfect place for a casual dinner with your loved one. Lord Erroll can be accessed from Ruaka Road, either from Limuru Rd or United Nations Avenue.

6. About Thyme

About Thyme is a great place for a nice quiet dinner with a garden. The food is very tasty and the atmosphere is very good. Their work is also good. I would highly recommend About Thyme for those who want a romantic dinner or for customers who prefer a peaceful ambiance.

About Thyme is located along Eldama Ravine Road in Westlands.

7. Purdy Arms

This is one of the best restaurants in Nairobi where you can dine with your family. The place is beautiful, a big park with games for the little ones. On Saturdays, you will also find an organic market in their garden, giving everyone the opportunity to buy organic vegetables. Nice place to eat in Karen.

8. Fonda NBO

It is by far the best Mexican food you will find in Nairobi. The chef is Mexican, offering a menu with a touch of authenticity. They have a variety of delicious food with more than 35 items that change over time, ensuring that there is something for everyone.

They have an impressive drink offering, which creates a truly spectacular atmosphere. The price is also cheap. A perfect place to relax for dinner.

9. Habesha Hotel

It is a beautiful place in Hurlingham with a beautiful atmosphere of three Ethiopian specialties. The staff are very friendly and very quick to say that their food is excellent value for money.

The perfect restaurant to dine with your family, colleagues or even your lover!

10. Ocean Basket

Ocean Basket is easily one of the best places for seafood in Nairobi. The place is special when you walk in, thanks to the friendly staff. Their beer and wine selection is also good. They retain a level of sophistication combined with a stylish exterior and few if any heaters.

The hotel is perfect to enjoy with a group of friends or family. I have been there many times and so far I have had a great experience.

11. 45 degrees Kitchen

The restaurant offers a menu based on sustainable and locally grown ingredients, using produce from the hotel’s own garden. The place is hard to find, but their food, atmosphere and service are very good.

A great dinner spot for couples and groups; friends / colleagues.
