I loved the setting inside and outside. Food and drinks are too expensive. 250 KSH for a normal cup of coffe. Smoking inside and chewing myrrah in the restaurant should be prohibited. It's even a signboard saying: No drugs on this property. It's a bit far from town centre.

Response from Romain:
Thank you so much for your feedback, we rely on our guests to know what we are doing right and where we fall short. Our restaurant is more expensive than most local restaurants because our utility costs are higher due to our remote location. Additionally, we serve gourmet food while offering cheap accommodation, which is why we have the option of a self catering kitchen. Our lounge area and bar are very open with large, airy windows but I agree with you we should have a designated smoking area for sure! Otherwise our distance from the town center was quite intentional; a hideaway from the daily life. We really look forward to seeing you again sometime! Karibu sana!
