Good but nothing to write home about....

The food is good and there is a good variety. Unfortunately the service is according on who is working, some are very good and some waiters dont even knoe youre there.

Since the previous manager, Christian left, the quality of food has unfortunately gone down. It used to be our favorite restaurant at one time.

Not impressive. Considering its location at the end of Rapta Road the establishment needs to do a lot more on its menu, standard of food and the service style before I would recommend visiting. Shame as it is a good location. I would summarise my views as: functional but not much more. Breakfast is not good value for money considering... More

This restaurant is q major eatery place in Nairobi especially for the corporate and expatriates. We were here twice in ( days we stayed in Nairobi and we were amused by the level of consistency they keep. Highly recommended

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).

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
