“Good restaurant, however, please be careful for SHARKS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The restataurant is very good. Nice location and well established, stylish for Nairobi and burgers are unbelievably BIG and TALL! I have never seen such a humongas burgers in my whole life! As the name of the restaurant, brew, yes, you can have many different kind of beer! So if you a fan of beer, this place is 4 you, even you are not so keen for beer, there are plenty of drinks 4 you, too. Atomosphere is good but please be careful for SHARKS of Nairobi. You know what I mean? Since this is popular for Westerners, there are another plenty of Nairobi SHARKS are looking 4 you and looking their eyes on you and your wallet! Despite that fact, as a restaurant, I recommmned this one for you! But sit tight and do not talk to those SHARKS! Early hours are highly recommended, because you are not drunk for them! lol

“Great micro-brewery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

If you are visiting Kenya for the first time and are not interested in 'big brewery' beer, this is the place to go to. The restaurant is over-rated but the bar has few peers in Nairobi for sampling good lager brewed on-site. A little bit of the Bistro's earlier exclusivity and sheen has been dulled by the fact that they are now supplying their lager brands a little more widely: to homes and other bars. But let this not discourage you, you will enjoy yourself here. I recommend the sampler rack which allows you to travel the full range of the bar's beer range. I always go back every two or three months - even though the place is not conveniently located for me. Enjoy.

“Great place for drinks and snack food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Met with friends here on Friday night. Very lively atmosphere, and yes if you want a quiet meal, this is not the place to go. Bar was pretty full but we sat at the bar and had drinks and some snack food which was really good. They brew their own beer and offer a sample beer platter which consists of 5 smaller glasses of each of the most popular brews. Yes it is noisy and sometimes difficult to have a conversation but I will definitely go back again.
