OUR FOOD

In the Mediterranean, food is prepared, served and eaten with love and passion, a concept brought to Karibu by Leslie and Kevin. We visit the markets daily to buy fresh vegetables, fish and meat as well as growing some of the more “hard-to-get” items in our own organic garden.

Our dishes incorporate readily available fresh ingredients, prepared with a Mediterranean influence, as well the inclusion of some traditional favourites. Our menu changes with the seasons and the inspirations of Head Chef and Owner, Leslie.

Breakfast
Our 3-Course Breakfast, served from 7am, is included in the room rate. Juice is freshly squeezed from seasonal fruits and pancakes arrive hot from the pan to your plate. A “Full English” follows with eggs cooked to your liking.

If you are leaving us before 7am we offer an “Express Breakfast” of Fruit, Muesli, Pancakes, Juice, Tea and Coffee

Lunch
The Lunch menu is available through-out the day and available to order on an a-la-carte basis. Our Mediterranean Salads are popular on a hot day, or for those with more of an appetite, Spaghetti Carbonara hits the spot

Dinner
Each evening Karibu serves a fresh and tasty 4-Course set-menu for just $US 20. We begin hours in advance, Baking our bread fresh, soups are simmered down from only whole ingredients and meat (when applicable) is slow-cooked. If you have any special dietary requirements, just let us know in advance and we will be happy to alter the menu for you. Please note that dinner bookings are by reservation only.
