The Talisman is an elegant Gastro-lounge with an eclectic twist. Described as “The best place in town” by New York Times Spirited Traveler and one of Kenya’s top rated restaurants, The Talisman offers a myriad of experiences to our patrons.
Featuring carved wooden pillars from Pakistan, elegant Afghan rugs, charming fireplaces, sprawling terraces and idyllic gardens, The Talisman blends fine dining with unbridled eclecticism. With fresh fish from Lamu, salmon from Norway and spices from Thailand fused with authentic locally sourced ingredients and produce from their organic garden, they serve up a delightful fusion of European, Pan-Asian and African cuisines.
The Talisman’s sophisticated, eclectic atmosphere serves as a unique and memorable setting for a wide range of special events, hosted both by the restaurant and our guests including events like wine tasting, intimate concerts, birthday parties, corporate functions and wedding receptions.
“The best place in town and the most happening place to see the local scene. With its low couches and beautiful gardens, the only thing needed to complete the scene is a Tusker or Dawa in hand” – O’ Donnell – The Spirited Traveler, New York Times
