“Good food and good selection of wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

A nice spot for lunch or dinner. Food was well prepared, and service attentive. The only problem was that we had trouble picking wines that were actually in stock--a number of the choices on the wine list were unavailable. Our server came up with a good solution--brought us several wines similar to our out of stock selection, and after a taste of each, we were able to settle on a good alternative.

“Taking Wine appreciation in Kenya to a new level”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Great place unwind and relax. Without doubt, this place has the largest variety of wines on offer and the staff know their products!! For those who want to discover their wine preferences, you must try the wine samplers and let the staff guide you through the tastings. I highly recommend this place!!!!!

“Excellent food and best wine selection in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We've only ever had great meals at the wine bar, especially their steaks. The wine selection by the glass is the best in Nairobi, and it's also a great place to go buy bottles to take home. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The only down side is the location, but other than that I only have praise for this bar/restaurant.

“Disappointing Customer Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

I booked and paid for a wine tasting class at wine bar for 24th August 2013. On the day of the wine tasting, I was late but when I got to the class i was told that it had been cancelled because the sommelier was out of town. The shop had my mobile number but did not bother to call me (or a friend who had also booked the class) to let me know that the class was cancelled.

I asked for a refund and they said that I should attend the repeat class the following weekend (they were reluctant to give a refund). I declined their offer and they eventually said that they would refund my money. As I had paid by debit card, I was told I could not get a cash refund and that I would have to wait for them to confirm that the funds had cleared in their account and then they would write me a cheque for the refund. They even offered to have the cheque delivered to my office. I have had to call them almost every two days to ask when my cheque will be ready. I was told it would be ready and delivered to my office today, but it was not and no one called to inform me.

I liked this bar, but after the fiasco with this wine class and poor customer service, I will not attend their wine tasting again. This experience has also clouded my previous appreciation of the place and I don't think I will go back anytime soon.
