Dining

Dining at the Norfolk Hotel offers numerous options from restaurants and bars, to more intimate meals served in your room. The cosmopolitan Lord Delamere Terrace comes highly recommended. It is an ever popular open air café with a menu ranging from Italian to Asian. This venue has proved to be a popular rendezvous point since 1904, when it was patronised by the first European settlers.

The Norfolk also hosts an American style steakhouse called Tatu as well as an impressive wine bar, Cin Cin. Light meals and snacks are served throughout the day at the Poolside Terrace and in the airy Hibiscus Bar & Lounge, which is also the place to enjoy the odd nightcap.

Traveller Reviews

  • We stayed at the Norfolk in Nairobi which is a beautiful, old hotel. Sunday we went to visit a church and school in Kibera which was a real eye opener for our western eyes. We had been put in contact with them through a student at the local university here who taught at the school this past summer. She had given us a "wish list" so we took them some supplies. Everyone we met was so warm and friendly.

"If only these walls could talk, what marvellous tales could be told - this pops to mind each time I visit the Norfolk. A drink on the Delamere Terrace is a must for any visitor."
