We went here for our wedding anniversary, and it wa sour worst visit so far. Teh food was somehow not as usually and in the end the main waiter had a strange outburst. My husband ordered the bill and one ber at ten to eleven and the bill came quick;y but when asked for the beer the waiter started to complain that he had been working from 6 in the morning and he wanted to see hsi kids. We pointed out that we are regulars and did not make any trouble or Thsi was probably just a bad day for him, we will still be back another time.Top class in Nairobi

Bobbe´s is the best place I have been to in Nairobi, a real French/Eoropean place in Africa. It is hidden at the end of Rhapta Road in Westlands, in the Andrews apartments complex. If you are not familiar with Nairobi then take a taxi. Food is very impressive, good tasting and nicely served. Fish dishes are the best I have had in Nairobi. Nice fish soups, mixed seafood and lobster. Steaks are good to. Prices are on the higher side but fair for the quality you are getting. Service is good and delicate.
For a nice evening out in a calm area this is the best pick.Great food. Shame about the wine list.

Can't argue with the quality of the food. Even the filet mignon came close to rare, as ordered, which I find "rare" outside France.
However, Christian should know better than to describe Cotes du Rohne and Beaujolais as "Burgundy". The real Burgundy was actually quite good and not overpriced by Nairobi standards.Great food. Good service. Excellent Value for money

For those that knew the old Alan Bobbe's Bistro, the new location at the end of Rhapta Road, Westlands in Andrews Apartments is fantastic. Located by the pool, with views of parkland, and sounds of a waterfall, the Bistro now feels even homely.
Entree's include home made pate, mushrooms made many ways, classic bisques, french onion soup, asparagus, vol au vonts, and so on.
Main courses include seafoods (lobster, prawns and fish cooked many styles, crabs), also a phenomenal seafood marmite, duck, chicken, beef, lamb, pork, brains, liver, quail, ostrich, all prepared in traditional French methods, served with potatoes (chips, mash, gratin) and vegetables.
Deserts include tarts, ice cream, creme brulee, pies, mousse and coffee's.
I had a crab bisque where you could taste crab, and brandy. Fresh baugette and good butter with a bottle of Beaujolis. My friends had French Onion soup that was made with a good stock, and mushrooms with Roquerfort Cheese - wonderfully fragrant.
For main Course I had a breast of duck - medium in a port sauce with gratinated potatoes, and my friends had fillets of Malindi Sole in a lemon butter sauce. It was faultless.
Food is excellent value for money, with attentive service.
