I love experiencing new places and eating different kinds of food. I don't easily give a one-star review but here I am. The restaurant has a very nice patio, and that's about it. We were a group of 5. It took a while to get a waiter to take our order. The ice tea was so bland and lacking flavor.... More

From breakfast to snack to dinner, we had most meals here and noticed many coming here to dine from outside. Afternoon Tea is served daily, breakfast is delicious, and dinner choices are great, all meals with an option to be delivered to your suite.

Restaurant is a part of the Palacina hotel, so there is no need to wander around looking for a good food. International cousine and very kind staff.

It has been an experience much unexpected compared to all my previous trips to Nairobi. It is definitely a home away from home with the touch of an above and beyond service. Great staff and management. Located in the middle of Nairobi, it is close to entertainment and malls, and about 30 min from the airport (without traffic of course😏).... More

Well cooked food with good options for lunch or dinner. If staying at the hotel for a few days it does get a bit repetitive however gives you the option to try a few different items from the menu. Really enjoyed the chicken wing starters and had a well cooked steak. Rosemary bread very tasty.

Nice environment, good service, although there are limited options, especially if you are staying at the hotel for multiple days. The lunch and dinner menu are the same.

We had forgotten it was Valentines day so it was a nice surprise to find the special menu in the Moonflower restaurant at the Palacina. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. Service was good and the price reasonable.

I spent 9 nights at Palacina and can honestly say that it is one of the finest hotels I've ever stayed at. The staff are exceptionally courteous and friendly and the rooms are gorgeous. There's a lovely complimentary high tea every afternoon, coffee and tea throughout the day. The hotel has several excellent drivers and the security is superb -... More
