Different and fun.

Went here for my 40th birthday with my family and friends.It's a great little place,food good with a trout theme but the real entertainment is the beautiful monkeys, who try and steal your food.My daughter was to busy to eat and we laughed lots.Great time had.

I visited the Trout Tree on my final day in Kenya and it really gave the wow-factor. So much so that I wrote about it in my blog.. muthasuppa.wordpress.com I highly recommend this innovative and beautiful restaurant.

The hotel is perched on a tree. Food is good, however general cleanness should be improved especially in the dining area, the monkeys also gave us an extra assignment as they kept jumping up an down on table as we ate.place ok.

The fish here is always fresh; well, you could almost fish it yourself......the monkeys a bit of a nuisance and staff seem to get bored doing the chasing. Highly recommended.

Would definitely say this was a highlight of our family trip to Kenya. A unique tree house setting - great fresh fish - you can see the hatchery. An amazing location.

Not to be missed. Great meal, unique "tree-house" setting, views down to the rainbow trout hatchery. Good fun, a great break on the road between Nairobi and Nanyuki area, Mount Kenya. The Sykes' monkeys will surreptitiously clear away the bread basket, if not the entire main, so watch out!. Good fun.

I cannot believe this restaurant has only 155 reviews!!! Anyone traveling to the Mount Kenya area needs to go for lunch to Trout Tree. Great food. Particularly recommend the cold smoked trout and pate starters, and whole grilled trout entree. Their chocolate cake desert is insane. I always leave trout tree looking like a satisfied cow. Also, GREAT hosts! Do... More

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...
