I also have a longer review posted for the Inn itself. The restaurant is great. Wonderful breakfast buffet. Service is great (as it is seemingly everywhere in Tanzania). The bar is very nice. Afternoon tea was nice. Dinner was excellent both nights that we were...there. I had pizza both nights. Rivertrees pizza is some of the best that I have ever had. The crust is perfect and the toppings are spot on.More
We wanted to get out of Arusha the night before our return home. We succeeded beyond our expectations.
We had a cabin by the river and overlooking trees that hosted several different types of monkeys. The room was spacious and comfortable. We didn't need the...mosquito netting, but it added some extra charm. Walking through the property simply added to the great overall atmosphere.
That night we ate onsite. Excellent. Lots of locals there for BBQ and for the music, which was a blend of Western, reggae and African.
Our only regret was that we hadn't book there on the front end of our trip.More
We ate at this restaurant a number of times during our stay at Rivertrees County Inn. While many guests eat here, there are plenty of patrons who aren’t staying onsite too, and everyone is welcome. There’s an option to eat on the patio, under the...pavilion, or under the big trees in the grass (which was our choice each time). Service was friendly and welcoming, though it could be slow at times when it was very busy.
The menu has something for everyone, and because we stayed at the inn twice during our recent trip to the region, we tried a number of dishes. There were a number of options for vegetarians, and a couple of vegan and gluten free options as well.
The Zanzibari Coconut & Vegetable Curry was tasty, the Grilled Chicken was a surprise hit, the soup of the day was tasty when we had it, and the pizzas – especially the roasted vegetable – are worth trying, and they’re made in a big woodfired oven outside. One night they had live music and Swahili Barbecue, which was tasty; I tried the mishikaki (beef skewers), ndizi mzuzu (barbecued bananas), and the kachumbari (tomato, cucumber, onion, and spicy pepper salad). The barbecue was my favorite meal of them all!
A few beers are on offer, and they are all reasonably priced around TZS 4,000. The food prices are reasonable (TZS 9,500 – 19,000 for a main) but are definitely more expensive than at other restaurants in the area. Nonetheless, it was delicious, and it’s worth visiting. Credit cards accepted.More
This is THE ONLY place to visit for food, drinks, coffee. Set in the most fabulous grounds, there was a varied & comprehensive menu, of a very high standard.
5 years ago our family stayed over night, and the rooms were absolutely charming.
