“Why is this GEM in a Mall?”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

This place is great! The decor, the selection, even the concept. But wh is it in a mall? It's not a bad mall, and across from the Apple Store is conceivably a choice location, but it's still a mall. This beautful little wine shoppe should be in a standalone upscale shopping center, or at least an upscale hotel. Ok, I'm over it. It's reall great. They have splits for those who want to sample one or more of their wines, and splits are by wine category. The staff knowledge is commendable. The appetizers are large portioned andmamvery good variety. The cold cut plattermis recommended. The cheese platter is a good accompaniment. They also have drinks and coffee (this IS still Kenya, after all!) for those who don't prefer wine. Everything about it screams elegance - except the location. WHEN it moves out of the mall, I'll give it another star!

“Very good for Apéro”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

The bar is located it a very new shopping mall. So the ambience is quite busy.
It is a very nice place to start the evening. You can have some nice wines together with some snacks. This is exactly what is called "l'Apéro" in France.

Today we tried a burger. The meat was really ok but the bread was cold and to much of it. Also the wedges were uncooked.

So I like the place for doing Apéro and than go to a nice restaurant for having dinner.

“Perfect for business meetings or a break from shopping!”
Reviewed 12 December 2011

WWW has become a favorite. I go there at least once a week. A wine list that can't be beat in East Africa, let alone Nairobi. And the quality of the food is superb. Even the "pub food" is excellent. I think the hamburger there is the best in Nairobi.

“Great experience, high prices, questionable corridor location”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

A high-end outlet of this calibre should not be on the corridor of a mall. If only you had a better placed one, I would be a regular.

Very high prices, tastefully decorated and good service. I shall return but after a hearty meal elsewhere.
