Lovely!

I had a chance to visit for a weekday dinner.The food was very good and so was the beer.I sat on the fine dining area which is quite intimate and quiet.It is ideal for date night.

This is a review of the catering for a formal function that wasn't held at Brew Bistro but their fabulous chef Hector provided the food in a kitchens that wasn't a professional one and unfamiliar to him and his team. From beginning to end Hector and his staff worked tirelessly to ensure that a fantastic evening was had by all.... More

We love to go out dancing, drinking, and some shisha here, but be sure to get there early on a week end or you will find yourself very cramped and with no place to sit. The house made beer is the best I've had in Kenya but the food is mediocre...Granted, I had a big birthday party here with a... More

Brew Bistro was a pleasant surprise for me. I visited on a Thursday and it was packed but I understand it is even "body to body" on Fridays. The music was soulful - There was a lady who sang along with the band and boy, did she sing! The Tapas starter tray was very tasty, left me wanting for more.... More

We visited twice while in Nairobi for a week's work (we live in Nakuru). The first visit was on a Sunday afternoon. We booked in advance to make sure we got a table with a view of the 6 Nations rugby game we were keen to catch. Booking was easy and the table we got was great. Unfortunately they don't... More

Had a phenomenal time here - especially enjoyed the wine list, which is definitely one of the best in Africa. Wines from all over the world - favorite was Kim Crawford Sauv Blanc from New Zealand. Super friendly staff and great food. HIGHLY recommend this place

I went to Brew Bistro on a Tuesday night, which is build your own burger night. It was fabulous with a great selection of things to put on the burger. My friends and I bought wine from the shop downstairs and they delivered it to our table. We also enjoyed a hookah before our meal. I haven't left Africa for... More

The beer is brewed on site and so is very fresh when you drink it. There is usually a good selection on offer. The food is well made and presented though a bit expensive. The service is friendly if a bit slow especially when the restaurant is full. Please remember to book a table if you intend to visit on... More

A great restaurant/lounge bar to visit. They have great offers for happy hour during the week, Friday is usually pretty popular so tends to be packed. You have to remember to book a table in advance. Saturdays and Sundays are more advisable, great for a sun downer and some music. I'm not a big beer fan but people brag about... More
