Tree house for lunch

A bit of rain didn't dampen our spirits and if trout is not a favourite of yours you will be ok with plenty of other options. Make sure you get there by 12 because it is so popular and well worth a visit.

A work of art. Well built, different, intriguing, outdoors up in the air but you feel safe, comfortable. Service was fast, the food was good. the staff are very friendly. A good place for lunch.

A truly unique space, consisting a number of separated areas built together around a large tree cluster. Basically a huge pirate tree house in a natural setting. The trout are grown at the restaurant in large tanks, and served fresh. Food is excellent, very tasty, and service is very good. Place is only open for lunch though. Google had the... More

Lunch in a huge fig tree. Fab. Mostly fish, trout in particular, of course, but in many different ways, which we love. All beautifully presented and large portions. Fish soup also amazing but a meal in itself! Separate kids menu on weekends only including pizza. A must to visit.

Order the trout fillet, very delicious and everyone loved it. The atmosphere can't be beat, we walked all through the tree house-even to the top floor. Service was wonderful, great staff. Our waitress showed us where the tree hyraxes were and said sometimes they would sit in your lap. The restaurant's hours are 11-4:30 everyday. Prices are reasonable. The art... More

Wonderfully imaginative concept - a restaurant in a tree above a trout farm - and very enjoyable visit. Friendly and welcoming staff. My dish - a spicy trout - was a little disappointing but I'd be happy to go again and try something else. 'Friendly' hyrax and watchful colobus monkeys all added to the fun.

Many stories in a banyan tree, unique settings, fillet trout was what we had, it was great with the chips. Many safari vehicles were there for lunch. Somewhat close to Sweetwater Tent Camp You will not be disappointed.

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to Nairobi and were treated to not just a delicious fish dish (fish was excellent, the dude fishes less so) but Joshua also invited us to join in feeding a family of Columbus monkeys. Good art/gift shop with prints and photographs by the owners of the restaurant.

There is no price on the menu, but only "a la carte" has price (1300kes for a grilled trout! when at the capital a nice peace of salmon is about 1600kes) They are pricing the menu regarding your face. By phone they told 1300kes, when then regular price is 1575kes. When you are seated, it becomes 2100kes. They are joking... More
