Nairobi’s Carnivore Restaurant voted among the World’s 50 best restaurants.
Often described as Africa’s greatest eating experience, this legendary open-air meat specialty restaurant has become a standard stop on the safari trail with strikingly different food, service and atmosphere to anything ever seen in Kenya. Every type of meat imaginable, including four choices of wild game, are roasted on traditional Maasai swords over a huge, visually spectacular charcoal pit that dominates the entrance of the restaurant. The waiters then carry these swords around the restaurant, carving unlimited amounts of the prime meats onto sizzling, cast iron plates in front of you. A wide selection of salads, vegetable side dishes, and a variety of exotic sauces accompany the meat feast. Dessert and coffee follow this. The full meal including a soup course is a set price.
The Carnivore is also the home of the Simba Saloon, Nairobi's most popular nightclub and disco. The informal outdoor atmosphere, exceptional snacks and outstanding entertainment ensure a vibrant and exciting night out. The Outdoor concert venue adjacent to the Simba Saloon is able to hold up to 20,000 people for a concert and 10,000 for special events. Established with fanfare and glitter ready for the mega Millennium bash on New Years Eve 1999/2000, the concert gardens launched with a breathtaking fireworks display and concert performed by Chaka Demus and Pliers. Since then the Carnivore Gardens have played host to many great entertainers such as Shaggy, Rita Marley, Gregory Isaacs and Brenda Fassi.
The famous Carnivore Dawa cocktail, a stimulating concoction guaranteed to raise anyone's spirits, was introduced to Kenya at the Carnivore. In Swahili, "Dawa" translates somewhere between medicine and magic potion. Under the African sun the "Dawa" is the drink chosen to rehydrate, refresh ones being and sharpen the taste buds. Dawa consists of 2 tots Vodka, 1 table spoon sugar, lime cut into quarters and Crushed ice. The lime and sugar are thrown together into a whisky glass, slightly crushed and topped with Ice and Vodka.
