Nice Pit Stop

We called here to break a journey (nightmare Kenyan road type) and really liked it. The service was not slow, but not as may be expected in Western Europe, but nevertheless was OK for us. As this is a trout farm, we had this as our main dish. It was very good and also reasonably priced... read more

The old adage goes, 'Location. Location. Location'. Barely 100mtrs off Nanyuki - Nairobi highway, about 18kms from Nanyuki. For those who love company, 'wild' company, prepare yourselves for colobus monkeys and tree hyraxes. Yes, they come to within contact range. The fish is bred in-house, you'll see the ponds cuz you are sitted right above them. You can get served... More

Stopped for lunch on our way from Nairobi. Eating in a tree house above trout ponds is not something you do everyday , so certainly has novelty value. We had smoked trout and salad which was produced quickly along with cold drinks . A welcome stopover .

Came back after many years. Still a lovely place (a nice stopover on the road from Nairobi to Samburu) but service and food were not as great as they used to be.

We decided to try out this restaurant for lunch. We were greeted by a huge group of colobus monkeys, really nice to see. The restaurant is in a great location, with lots of trees. From our table, we had a great view over the trout ponds. The service was terribly slow, the food took way too long, not to mention,... More

Very slow service it moved at a glacial pace. To be fair they were slammed with four bus loads of students but they had the buffet while we ordered from the menu.good portions and a unique venue with colubus monkeys and hyrax in attendance. Not a high point. The food when we got it was good but the wait spoiled... More
