The Verandah Restaurant
The Verandah is a relaxed, informal daytime restaurant situated in Nairobi Kenya. A short drive from the hectic city centre brings you to Nairobi's country suburbs, home of the Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen Museum, the Giraffe Manor, and of course, THE VERANDAH.
The Verandah caters to tourists and residents alike, equally popular with both.Inside seating, complete with a fireplace for those chilly Kenya days has open views to the garden where tables are set under an immense fever tree amongst lush foliage and shady umbrellas.
Come for a quiet country breakfast, a business brunch, a leisurly lunch with friends or a tête-à-tête for afternoon tea. Our menu includes
breakfast, soups ~ Nairobi's best Zanzibar soup so we're told ~ salads, sandwiches, steaks and fresh costal seafood selections ~ not to mention our famous Lemon Lime Cheesecake, all prepared fresh daily in a hearty home-cooked fashion, served with typical Kenyan hospitality.
Our garden is host and home to numerous species of birds which flock to feeding trays and water dishes for your lunchtime entertainment. Indoor "palms' are the nesting place of several generations of Ruffous Sparrows.
Seasonally you'll see fire finch, pintailed wydah, various weavers, forest oriole , robin chat, indigo birds, manikins, sunbirds and an elusive pair of paradise fly catchers.

Take this murram (dirt) road just 300 meters to the first gate on the left. The Verandah is situated within the Utamaduni Craft Centre.
