A most enjoyable experience. We had great gourmet burgers (the best in Nairobi) and a good desert. The wine was reasonably priced and the meal was served timeously

Sierra restaurant offers indoors and outdoors sitting , a plus. The dishes are well presented (western style) and the food is well cooked. On taste though you should expect international standards that you will quickly forget. The wine prices are on the high end.

The place has the best best Burgers in Nairobi without a doubt! The rest of the food is quiet good and they brew their own Sierra range of beers. The wine selection is average. But a must try!

I'm a regular at Sierra, because I enjoy the food, ambiance and the service is consistently good. I particularly like the fact that it's the kind of restaurant you can spend all evening in and take your time over drinks and dinner. There's no sense of impatience among the wait-staff. BUT...Sierra changes its menu every so often and my biggest... More

Had a great 3 course meal from a varied menu. Food was good and reasonably priced with good service. Option of being inside or on covered verandah, which we chose. A good experience which we repeat.

It is very nicely laid out and decorated. A good atmosphere. It was a shame that the terrace doesn't have a no smoking section so we had to sit inside. Food was really nice and pretty good value. I recommend the sticky toffee pudding. Service was good as well.

Sierra brings together unique South African wines from the lesser known wine estates and dry aged grass fed angus beef for the steaks and burgers from the foothills of Mt.Kenya for a uniquely African experience. Sierra also has its own state-of-the-art brewery on Mombasa road and they therefore make their own stout beer.
