My friend and i came here for lunch. To begin with the bridge, that distance was quite sad in the beginning but got used to it halfway. The view was amazing. When we got to the restaurant we had chicken wings for starter and it was delicious, couldn't wait for the main course. We had pepper steak with fries, the... More

I had gone to Rolf's in the past and was worried that the service was declining, only to find out that both service as well as food was in tip top condition! Three of us ordered the Pepper Steak, all three were very delighted at the outcome. Succulent steak with just the right ingredients and fries on the side that... More

Rolf's has quickly become one of my favorite places in Nairobi, and I always make sure to spend a couple days there whenever I'm passing through. The deluxe room is beautiful, overlooking the gorgeous valley below and with a big jacuzzi tub. The staff is also extremely friendly and go way above and beyond to make me comfortable during my...

I came with our company for a team building and we had an amazing time! From the expansive grounds to stretch our feet, to the Paintball session, to the scrumptious food that we had, with ice cream for dessert (which I looooved!!) it was everything the team needed to relax and let out pent up steam for the whole year!!...

The extrance to be this place is spectacular. The bridge over the gorge with the white water beneath is a definite photo opportunity. We ordered our food but not everything was available. We waited quite a while before the food came eventhough the restaurant was virtually empty. The presentation of the food was just OK but my schnitzel was tasteless... More

This was a beautiful place but I think it's been abandoned. Lovely interior and exterior. Nice bridge that leads you to the place. The swimming pool was dirty. Maybe because we went there on a week day. No more horse ridding or any nice activities. I'll try vissiting again on a weekend.

They are located in the most amazing place however you can see that along the years they neglect to maintain the infrastructure built and the food is actually not good. It's really a pity ... If you can still visit for a drink maybe cause the place is definitely worth

Can't get enough of going here for lunch. So near city centre of Nairobi, yet so far from the city. Having lunch with view over the gorge, while monkeys try to steel food from the kitchen, watching beautiful birds. Take a walk to Kitengela Glass and come back to Rolfs for a coffee or tea. Amazing location.

The owner certainly left with the chef not only exotic and delicious Scandinavian recipes, but also he built a unique and exotic hotel restaurant with a fantastic view. The suspension bridge captivates local people and expats. Try it! Take also the opportunity to visit kitengela glass factory which is near from Rolf's place. You will definitely spend a wonderful day!
