This place is calming and beautiful. The service level is excellent. The food is super delicious and fresh. It was nice to take a walk around the garden as well. Must go.

The cafe provides a relaxed setting for lunch away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi life. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is excellent. Was busy so make sure you have booked.

After finishing a safari we flew back to Nairobi and went to dinner at Tamambo in the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden. We ate in the more casual part of the restaurant. The setting was very pleasant, casual tables and chairs in a lovely garden setting....More

A great spot for lunch. Beautiful garden and cottage to see after having an amazing buffet lunch. Excellent variety of food. Very nice setting under tents to protect you from the sun.

Pretty grounds and garden patio surround the old Karen Blixon manor. Wonderful service and nice people, but filled with many rude white tourists. Food is good, nothing special with western dishes. The African food is good, try the Ndogo ndogo chicken or shrimp piri piri....More

Wow - what a place! I cannot fault it - from the service, to the food, to the cottages, to the manicured grounds, to the history of the land. It is perfect!
