I had lunch here every day during my visit and was not disappointed once. The fresh fruit-cocktail juice is a sure winner.

Convenient oasis for stopover, so you don't have to face the Langata road traffic and miss your connection. Lovely wood worn smooth by the sleeves of pilots and passengers over many years. Also relative calm (broken by buzzing helicopters landing nearby), food, drink and wifi.

Wow! I have never seen so many interesting burger names and burger combinations on one menu. If you cannot find a burger you like on this menu - you are most definitely a seriously fussy eater! They also serve an array of other dishes that...More

The food at Aero Club was pretty good compared to other eating venues in Nairobi. The only thing is the service. It takes almost an hour to get anyone to serve you. The food 9/10. Service 3/10.

The Aero Club of East Africa was founded in 1927 by the aviation pioneers who opened up the frontiers of Africa. It still retains that 1930s romantic charm and historical ambience. The club is the only restaurant at Wilson Airport, four km from Nairobi’s central business district on the Langata Road. It is on the edge of the Athi Plains, with easy access to the Nairobi National Park and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The restaurant has inside dining, a large eating deck and tables in the garden and by the swimming pool. It overlooks Wilson’s 007 runway and is an ideal spot to spend the hours before you leave on safari or to unwind on your return and watch planes and helicopters land and take off while soaking up the atmosphere in this legendary piece of Kenya’s aviation history. Chef Neil McCarthy and the Creative Kitchen Co. team moved into the restaurant at the Aero Club of East Africa on 1st October 2011. Neil has cooked and consulted all over the world, from London’s Mayfair Hotel and the Moscow Metropole to California’s vineyards and top-range hotels across Africa, including the Mt. Kenya Safari Club and Nairobi’s Tribe hotel. He is famous for his tasty gourmet burgers and dry-rub spicy BBQ ribs. He creates tasty international buffets and a la carte specialties. Sinful puddings include his New York style, melt in your mouth, baked cheese cake and home baked apple pie. He serves mouthwatering and seriously satisfying food.
