We serve lunch between 12 pm and 4:30 pm and dinner between 5 pm and 10 pm. The kitchen and bar remain open until 4 am serving the After-Hours Menu.


We accept online bookings through our website;, Email bookings;, WhatsApp bookings; +254 758 956 805, as well as in-person bookings.

We can seat up to 150 guests at a time. For us to be able to accommodate so many guests and ensure that you receive the best level of service, we do ask that you secure a reservation at a particular time and that you adhere to that time. Bookings are not confirmed until you receive a confirmation message from us.

We strongly recommend that groups of more than 5 guests reserve a table in advance by contacting the team directly Tel: +254 758 956 805 Email: or on the website.


If a reservation is made, then the table is yours for the whole of the service and we do not normally ask you to vacate a table. However, should you arrive more than 30 minutes after your booking time without forewarning, then you may lose your table to another group.

We would respectfully ask that you are ready to be seated at the time of your reservation. Should you arrive after your booking time, we may need to hold you back to a later time to ensure the best possible level of service for all our guests.

Tables are allocated on the day by the restaurant team and although we will do everything we can to allocate a table in your preferred area of the dining room, we cannot always guarantee this.


We are very happy to accommodate a variety of dietary requirements with advance notice. Please ensure you include all dietary requirements in the booking. In the event your dietary requirements are quite restrictive, please contact us to discuss.
