In Summary
  • I have frequented the restaurant enough times but the experience always leaves me breathless.
  • The hanging light bulbs and chandeliers provide ample lighting that accentuates the décor giving the restaurant a warm hue.
  • I could tell that the roast chicken was delicious, it was golden brown with a rich aroma of marinating spices.

Nothing beats a nice eatery joint, especially when you are feeling overwhelmed and just want to get far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Sometime back, I discovered the perfect haven for great food and relaxing music—the Moca Loca lounge located along Kenyatta Avenue at the heart of Nakuru town. I have frequented the restaurant enough times but the experience always leaves me breathless. From the sumptuous menu to tasteful décor, it is little wonder that it has become my favourite place to enjoy some “me” time as well as catch up with friends.

When you walk in, the first thing that will probably catch your eye is the Egyptian antique collection of kettles and international clocks displayed on the wall behind the counter. The hanging light bulbs and chandeliers provide ample lighting that accentuates the layout design giving the restaurant a warm hue.

The décor has a black and maroon theme that complements the colourful decorative artefacts on the walls. Big sliding windows open up to a Venetian balcony that is lined with dainty flowers whose fresh scents waft discreetly into the restaurant. The cheerful staff complete the picture with their welcoming smiles making you feel at home instantly.
