Description
Our creative culinary team has produced one of the best fine dining experiences in Kenya. Seasonal menus and wine pairings shift in rhythm with the flowering Tuscan-styled outdoor terrace overlooking the pool. At the terrace or in the elegantly appointed dining room, take pleasure in a rich montage of regional and international specialties with flavourful textures and aromas as well as live piano music creating a delightful sensory experience. Aperitifs or digestifs may be enjoyed on the outdoor cigar deck or in the relaxed sophistication of the cocktail lounge. Guests seeking an additional measure of exclusivity are invited to dine at the Mandhari Captain’s table.
