While I liked the atmosphere of The Lord Erroll, particularly the bar area, the food was pretty average. Also, mosquitos were terrible outside on the porch. Service was so-so.

I was really looking forward to our evening meal at the Lord Erroll hoping very much that it would be in the style of the infamous Lord himself. Luckily our driver found the place down a narrow drive close to the UN building and many embassies including the heavily fortified Canadian & US complexes. There is free parking in the... More

An office 3 day training was held there. Very close to the UN offices. Nice venue for conferences and business related meetings. Lunch provided is OK. Surrounding is not noisy thus ideal for trainings and conferences to take place.

Lord Eroll is situated in Runda area close to UN and has been refurbished. The restaurant is build in a colonial style and has a beautiful garden and a very cisy terrace. The food is excellent, service is very friendly. Really enjoyed my evening and the food.

I had heard a lot of great things about The Lord Erroll, but it wound up being just so-so. They didn't have a lot of the food on the menu. Also, they didn't have half the wines on the wine list. And, for the wine, they didn't even tell us they didn't have the bottle we ordered. We'd ask after... More

I took my wife to The Lord Errol for dinner on a Thursday evening during a visit to Nairobi. We called ahead to book a table. The venue setting is superb, but that is it. We ordered dinner from the a la carte menu. It sounded nice - the seafood selection at Ksh2,200 (USD$22) but it was a disappointment. One... More

The restaurant is set in a grand house and it's lovely with a beautiful garden, we went in the evening and still sat outside. We were there for Hubby's birthday and the chicken egg salad was the bomb, the main course was great too and after their generous servings we had no room for desert. A great night.

The setting is beautiful! Lovely Sunday brunch venue, live music, gorgeous garden, great service. But the food was not good. Many menu items were not available. I ate about 1/4 of my pork as it was like leather. Same with my husbands mixed grill. The ham and melon appetizer was strange, the mixed salad essentially a bowl stuffed with lettuce... More

We have never been disappointed in the Lord Errol, we hope that this continues. We love the verandah and watching the birds as well. We love them

The Lord Errol is almost a perfect restaurant experience. It has great food, the staff are pleasant, and the ambience, even at night is awesome. The food is better priced for many comparative places. Highly recommend a visit.
