Ventana was my first choice during the NRW 2019. Being my first time, expectations were definitely high especially because I had seen good reviews and their food menu was among the few reasonably-priced among the participating restaurants. Oh boy, were those expectations met! Great service, great food and great atmosphere! For the starters, I thoroughly enjoyed the mac and cheese balls served with tomato chutney (they only need to improve on the size of these divine morsels). For mains, I settled for the chicken kiev served with fries and garden salad...wasn't sure what to expect being my first time to have this but one can never go wrong with chicken. My choice was spot-on! The portion, the flavor and the presentation was just wonderful! My palate was dancing in delight. Dessert...everyone's best friend...I went for the sticky toffee with vanilla ice-cream and caramel sauce. Another great decision because I had a hard time letting go of my plate. It was very comforting and satisfying. My friend had the avocado ice-cream which was okay but has some sort of acquired taste especially when infused with the mint and chocolate chips. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at V E N T A N A :) definitely going back!!!
I loved my experience, good food, ambiance and the decor
I was here during the Nairobi restaurant week on a friday for dinner, i arrived late but i still got a seat as we had reserved. It was packed but it was big enough, i did not feel it crowded. We were served a three course meal, i particularly enjoyed their cocktails, i am not a fan of cocktails but they were good. The food was perfect. The service was good despite the huge number of people that were at the restaurant on that day
I came here during the NRW 2016 and their menu was okay. The ambiance is sophisticated and relaxed. The service was just fine. The food took a while to come and was nothing too special. The food was okay the drinks were fine too. Though i am not eager to return as there was nothing memorable enough for me to really want to go back. It was an okay experience.
The food was great.The service was excellent as well. Someone looking for a nice little restaurant should visit this place.
