The top ratings on Trip Advisor are fully deserved. The bar and restaurant is a great place to chill, with sofas and cushions for you to lounge on. The staff are really friendly and welcoming. We had the samosas (loved the feta and coriander ones)...More

The best part about this restaurant was not the food or service, but it's location. It's right next to the lake, we enjoyed the views and spotted lot of common kingfisher birds. The food served here was very average, a bit pricey, and service was...More

First, the location of this restaurant can be quite deceiving. Once you get in, the ambience is so chill. Service is excellent! The food is ah-mazing,we were literally in a food coma after our lunch. The boat ride was also ah-mazing and very affordable.

The ambiance of the restaurant is top class. I loved the Swahili Fish Curry with Tuskers Lager. Little pricy but the ambiance is worth it.

Big portions for a reasonable price. The staff is really friendly. Note that pizza is only possible from Wednesday to Sunday! A small pizza is already quite big, so unless you are very, very hungry will do the trick

Visited Camp Carnellys for late lunch and it was absolutely the best. The restaurant is set up in a very chill style with tables and chill spaces with african print pillows and low tables. It is quite relaxed and cozy. We had spicy crayfish with...More
