“Excellent French food in average atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

The French food was excellent, but the restaurant would deserve a more comfortable atmosphere. The poolside tables were nice, but otherwise the surroundings of Andrew's apartments did not match the great kitchen.

“IMO the best restaurant in Nairobi”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

This little Bistro is a hidden gem in Nairobi, run by a friendly Belgian fellow. I have eaten here many times and there is nothing bad on the menu. Influence is Belgian/ French.
The restaurant is difficult to find but if you ask a discerning local they will know where it is.
Prices are reasonable

“Good long standing Nairobi restaurant”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

Alan Bobbe's has been around for years, albeit in three different locations. Now in its latest location, the food is still good. I do think the heavy french food thing is a little bit old fashioned but some would call it classic. It is all good quality and so a good meal is pretty much assured. The new location is a bit characterless but quite smart and swishy.
