The atmosphere of the place is very relaxed, the trees and the outdoor dining make up for the feeling of not being in a city. Very good cocktails and affordable as well, they take time but they are well worth waiting for. The food is also well served, again slow but well worth the wait.

In an effort to avoid the effusive Xmas day crowds, we opted to visit the Corner Affair - and were a tad surprised to find this delightful place quite empty. Where is everyone, I wondered? Unfortunately, a number of items on the menu were not available as we ordered. We waited in trepidation for our meal (empty restaurants often serve... More

Thought if drop in at the bistro after a long time away. Well received on arrival. Somehow that day there was very limited availability of what is in the menu, but chose a sandwich which I enjoyed. I'd recommend a try at Corner Affair. One can get indoor seating, and garden seating.

The restaurant was empty on a Monday evening. A rustic restaurant with a lot of outdoor space offers excellent ambience and food. Try their chicken wings starters, lamb chops and fillet steak. Lovely place for a relaxed dinner.

The cocktails are great and the food's good...but the service isn't. Oh! They also ran out of ice at one point so cocktails were not offered until ice was bought from the supermarket.

I have eaten here 2/3 times in the last 2 years whilst travelling to Nairobi. The menu isn't exciting but the food is usually very good but quite slow service and little information on what is happening while you wait. The wine is expensive, but I would recommend trying it out perhaps for a romantic meal!

Slow service, too expensive and a cockroach in the bottom of the cappuccino. Nothing special about the menu either. Never going again.
