My friends and I had an amazing glorious time over lunch at The Lord Erroll. Right from the beautiful ambiance (pristine), to the great service (Karanja, our waiter was matchless, great, polite yet courteous above all), the food..the food was palatable and delectable (thank you Chef Isaac). You must try the chicken skewers for starters. That just set the tone... More

We enjoyed the beautiful garden while they set up a table for our group. The food came perfectly timed and the children were served first. The quality was outstanding and... More

I went there for dinner with a friend. The place is set in a beautiful colonial villa, the staff are so welcoming. However, the food is under our expectation.

We love the place, the veranda is just perfect for a Sunday brunch or a Saturday morning breakfast, after some purchases at their food market...we went there for the first time for dinner on a weekday night. Not very full, we didn't have a reservation and we scored a great table. We will keep going, although one of the shared... More

Amazing put together five course menu with well paired wine and fantastic flavours. Great performance from Chef Isaac throughout the menu. Five star atmosphere and high standard service. Definitely a preferred option for a successful night in Nairobi.
