It’s like a time warp from a previous past. Lots of silver cutlery and traditions. The menu is classic British to an extent, from a few decades back. Fresh multiple produce, is a challenge in the geographic context. Service was excellent and professional.

We went here for a celebratory dinner with a piano playing in the background and waiters that are quick and responsive. The food was as elegant as to be expected in such a place and id definitely go there again and refer others without hesitation

Lovely restaurant that takes pride in the table setting, cutlery, crockery and presentation. Love the teapots. The cutlery is clean and shiny. The food is good although some items on the menu was not available.

The iconic flagship restaurant and adjoining Can-Can cocktail bar of Meikles, on the first floor, has been operational since 1958. In 2013 it was extensively refurbished and its kitchen transformed into one of the most modern in Africa. For lunch, dinner and table d’hôte it features an upmarket grill-house menu with the emphasis on wholesome food and quick service. Our signature restaurant overlooks the gardens and trees of Africa Unity Square.
