A lovely lunch
Such a pretty place with flowers and green happy plants all around. The staff is friendly and nice, I had a delicious piece of chocolate cake, salad, and a latte. Super place!
If you like outdoor cafe/restaurants, The Arbor is just the place for you! The Arbor’s staff are very friendly and the restaurant is eco-friendly! They call themselves the healthiest restaurant in town which is a courageous thing to say but as far as we’re concerned they’re right. We suggest you go on a brunch time when there are special offers with amazing flavours. With large portions and affordable prices, you and your friends would love it here with classic cocktails on a peaceful and cosy garden.
4. Tin Roof Café

Tin Roof Café is actually started against the idea of Nairobi’s fast-growing mall culture. The owners thought that people need more green places than they ever were. As an outside and green place, Tin Roof Café invites people to have lunch under the sunlight with your friends or kids. This eco-friendly café has vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options in every section of the menu! They prepare their food with organic produce and don’t use plastic straws or any irreversible products. Tin Roof Café also has a twin in Langata with the same point of view against the malls. We think that Tin Roof Café is the best eco-friendly Kenyan Restaurant in Nairobi. If you’re a green lover&protector, you may have just discovered your favourite spot in Nairobi!
Tapas Ceviche Bar

Authentic Spanish tapas in Kenya!
Food was excellent, the seasoning was truly from a Spanish grandma’s recipe. The service was very good and the ambience unique.
Ready for a chill night out? Well, this is just the right place for a chill night out with friends and where it feels like a real hidden place! Tapas Ceviche Bar has excellent Spanish and Mediterranean cuisines. After a course of a great meal, you can enjoy special cocktails or even classic ones! Tapas Ceviche Bar talks to everyone! You will definitely be comfortable with your friends, family or even in a business meeting! Just try to keep up with those delicious Sangrias.
