Excellent place! The trouts are really good, the timing and quality of the service are good. A place well located on the way bock after a Safari in Samburo or Laikipia or Meru. Lovely location on the tree. Also other menus are good. We went also with small children and they loved it included the colobus monkey present there!

What you find in Kenya ceases to amaze me. If there is another restaurant like this please tell me. Talk about fresh trout, they are overlooking the fish ponds! We were a group of 6 and couldn't ecide so chose 2 platters for 2 with 5 or so varieties of preparation of the trout. Pan fried was my favorite and... More

Trout Tree is a great stop-over for lunch if you are passing Nanyuki. Good service and excellent fresh fish caught especially for you. Their trout pate is delicious too!

Trout Tree is on the road between Karatina and Nanyuki. It is a working trout farm that has a cozy lunch restaurant- open only from 11am - 4pm. In addition to fresh grilled trout, there is smoked trout and trout pate that can be bought to take away. The rolls are baked on the premises and delicious. Watch the collabus... More

Trout Tree is absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous. Its a huge tree house built on a fig tree overlooking the trout farming ponds. I found the food average, but maybe too bland for my Asian taste buds, and the service extremely slow. the kitchen is too small to cater for lunches on weekends. The facilities are great otherwise.

The location is great, a tree house restaurant over looking a trout farm. The grilled trout was superb. What will make the visit truly memorable for me though was watching my wedding ring fall through the floor into the stream several metres below us, shortly followed by one of the serving ladies wading into the stream without hesitation and somehow...

If you like trouts this is the place to come, and if you just want to eat your dinner a tree then it's doubly great. I'm not a huge fish fan and luckily there are vegy and steak options on the menu because it would be a shame not to eat here because I've never been any where like it,... More

This restaurant is relatively easy to find,it's just off the naro moru - nanyuki road and your GPS should be handy in locating it. We made it in time for lunch, at around 3 pm,so we were properly ravenous, (Restaurant is open from 10am-4pm) and were well received by their attentive staff. We enjoyed our grilled trout and tandoori trout... More

If you love trout, this restaurant is not to be missed. Other commendable features are that the dining platforms are built into a tree and the trout ponds gurgle below you. I would stop there again if I were on my way to Nanyuki but wouldn't make a special trip to Nanyuki to sample the menu.

Who hasn't dreamt of living in a treehouse? The next best thing has to be a visit to the Trout Tree. The restaurant is built around and in a very big old fig tree and is a magical setting. It's mainly outdoors - but sheltered - and higgledy piggledy as it follows the contours and levels of the tree. Must... More
