It's basically a trout farm with a restaurant in a tree. Rustic and difficult to access it's created a name amongst travelers specially. There's even an India version where you get the trout as a curry.

This was our last stop before heading to Nairobi to fly home. It was incredible! We were greeted by the resident monkeys before sitting down to eat. Watching the leap from tree to tree was a delightful welcome! The restaurant truly is built around a tree and it is a wonder to behold. And the food was delicious! Everything our... More

Amazing ambience... The rusty old school type settings adds a very unique touch.. The best part is you choose your own fish and eat it right there. Fresh... Cooked to your taste and style... Amazing staff and service very good maintenance...

Love this place. Food was excellent. Very unique. Atmosphere was fabulous even the monkeys! This seemed to be a very popular spot in the area - very busy on a Sunday afternoon. We even visited the gift shop.

This is a gem of a spot just off the main Nairobi-Nanyuki road. Incredible spot, eating in a tree with Monkeys above you making sure you leave a clean plate or else..! Relaxed but good quality amenities and the food is simple but sensationally fresh and a real treat to have fresh fish in this part of Kenya. Carbon footprint... More

Fresh trout just caught, in a beautuful tree-house in a jungle setting. How can you beat that! The ambience is amazing, the staff is amazing, and the food is amazing! Fantastic place!
