Although the road leading here is steep, once you're inside the property (Moonflower is part of the Palacina Hotel), you will find the restaurant a tranquil oasis. Tables are on an open-air patio, looking out onto trees and next to a soothing fountain. The menu is mainly Mediterranean with Swahili touches and is wonderfully varied, ranging from salads (Niçoise, grilled chicken, couscous) to burgers, steaks, pasta, and chicken. Fish dishes include red snapper with lime hollandaise, and there are some good vegetarian options. Lunchtime is popular with local businessmen, and a jazz band plays on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday nights. The Palacina Hotel has tastefully decorated suites and all modern amenities.
