“Good selection of wines, nice place for a decent drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

The wine bar is located in the Junction Mall, has a good selection of international wines, by the glass, bottle, take away/whole sale. The burgers looked great through we did not eat there. Recommended, though pricy.

Dear Barnskybeat, Thanks for visiting WWW Shop and Bar to hear you had a good time. Sorry that you missed our burgers, hopefully you will have more time on your next visit. I have also noted your comment on the prices, we have an extended list of wines by the glass (80 in total) ranging from Ksh 390 a glass up to over Ksh 1500 a glass for the famous Amaronne wine from Italy! We regularly check our prices against our competitors and for the same products we are on par or even lower, though depending on your choice of wine or upper end whisky, your bill can become a bit heavy! For your next visit to Nairobi, please do remember our burgers!

“Overpriced with bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I stopped at the restaurant for a meal. I chose a burger. Burger was dry, chips were very dry. Service was poor... 2 or 3 waiters on duty were sitting at the bar with possibly a friend. I had to wait until the only person working (a waitress) appeared to get served, get the bill, get change etc. The place looks impressive but I will not go again. Overpriced for what it is! And with poor food makes it an insult.

Mike,
First of all, thank you for visiting WWW Shop and Bar and for posting comments on your experience. I have reviewed your posting and what you have described is indeed a very disappointing experience. I am surprised to hear that our burger was dry as these are freshly made and hand cut using our 28days aged beef from Morendat farm. Please accept our sincerest apologies for this and I will contact you personally to make it up to you as this is certainly not what WWW Shop and bar is known for. Please do contact me personally when you are back in Kenya. Looking forward to meeting you. Philippe

“Great food and wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We enjoyed a quiet evening at WWW and were impressed by excellent service and knowledgable recommendations of food and wine by the owner. The steaks were perfectly done and the wine was very good. Thanks Philippe!

“Very innovative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I snacked and didnt really have a meal but the snacks were filling enough for me. The wine though stole the show. Great selection and a staff that knew their products.
