I tried the taster selection of beers - save some space and go for the half metre version - to chose a good beer and found that I could happily have chosen any one of those on offer. The Tapas choice was good and so was the food when it arrived. The place has a good buzz to it which... More

The Brew has two distinct areas, a high end (and price) restaurant which is quiet and can lack atmosphere mid week when it is virtually empty, and a more raucous tapas bar area. For an intimate meal or to chat with friends I would recommend the tapas bar before 1900 , or the restaurant at any time. In the evening... More

This place used to be one of my favourite places to go for great food, especially the steaks, and a lively bar scene. Since I left Kenya a few months ago, this place has changed chef and now has a new one who has carried on the same menu but hasn’t carried on the standards of taste and style of... More

Was able to stlll eat from a brunch menu (opted for version of an English breafast but with fresh juice which was delicious) and the waiters were very friendly although they seemed to be a good number coming to ask us whether we were being...

The brew bistro is a favorite stop in Nairobi. We dined at the restaurant which is divided from the rest of the place and the food was excellent. Very friendly waiters who keep away to give you privacy and prompt in service delivery. On one occasion we had a special set up on a table reservation just because i had... More

We went to Brew on a Saturday night. As was expected the place was heaving. Good sign. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is excellent and covers most tastes. I chose a steak, which was excellent. My only disappointment was my desert. I ordered the Panna cotta, an interesting combo of Panna cotta, strawberries and Balsamic reduction.... More

I love this place as the crowd is good and mature, the Dj really knows to read the crowd and play appropriate music. Happy Hour starts from 5pm-7pm and you get a free beer or Mojito with every one you buy, thats a BOGOF. Prices are a bit on the higher side though.If you need some finger food, try the... More

Mainly expatriate crowd who cannot dance. Instead, go to a local club and experience real rhythms and dancing.

This is an upscale bar and resto that brews its own beers. The balcony is packed with young moneyed locals on weekend nights, and very noisy. Had a steak in the restaurant, a small but sylish, modern venue behind the bar. The food was pretty good, nothing extraordinary, but they seem to try hard. Service was good, and food came... More
