Sierra brings together unique South African wines from the lesser known wine estates and dry aged grass fed angus beef for the steaks and burgers from the foothills of Mt.Kenya for a uniquely African experience. Sierra also has its own state-of-the-art brewery on Mombasa road and they therefore make their own stout beer.
