This is a breakfast you could get anywhere, or make yourself if you have 20 minutes. Nothing wrong with it, and nothing right about it either. Unless you happen to have woken up in a bed above this place, there is no good reason to come here (no comment on other meals offered, just had the buyers remorse breakfast here).

Nice place next to Prideinn Raphta, good food, quality service and excelent environment for dinning. It is easy to locate towards the end of Raphta road. We enjoyed our diner experience

This restaurant was very bad. I have been going their since my first date and enjoying the fantastic Onion Soup and the Petit Pot Du Creme Au Chocolat. There was nothing worth putting a second fork or spoon in. This restaurant will probably close down in no time

Having been to this restaurant several times over the years I had looked forward to returning. Although the venue has changed, and isn't much in comparison to where it used to be, the food had remained very good, until this trip. The last time I went there I had the confit de canard with dauphinoise potato, as it was such... More

Having heard so much about Alan Bobbe's Bistro in the past it was with great sadness that we had one of the the worst meals I think I have ever had in Kenya. Basically, everything was wrong!! The service was shocking and they had no idea what wine they had and then when we ordered, they said that they didn't... More

When we last ate at Alan Bobbe's, a couple of years ago, the food was excellent; had the restaurant had more character and more diners, we would certainly have returned sooner. However, having re-visited the restaurant for a friend's birthday, it is safe to say we will not be back. Whilst the starters were pleasant, the main courses were an... More

Recently stayed at Andrews Apartments and therefore sampled pretty much everything on the menu. In general it is akin to the usual mid range hotel fayre. Not a great selection of wine, or anything for that matter. Since it is out of the way and never seems to be that busy. The starters are better than the main meals, obviously... More

Location is tucked away and atmosphere is nice, but the coq au vin I make at home is worlds better than what they serve here. Also came by once when we lived close by and tried to order a dessert to takeaway for my children and was told that there was nothing on the menu that could be served as... More

Simply expensive for no reason. Have a strong brand reputation. Could do a lot better by simply reinventing their Menu. The price tag does not translate to 'food value'. Good place to go to if you want some privacy and do not care much about the food.

The French food was excellent, but the restaurant would deserve a more comfortable atmosphere. The poolside tables were nice, but otherwise the surroundings of Andrew's apartments did not match the great kitchen.
