“Love the scene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This place is comfortable and very scenic. I loved the bridge leading up to it, the room itself was splendid and comfy. With huge couches and great warm lighting.
The bar selection was great, the food as well. Its a bit pricey but i felt it was well worth it.

“Ideal lunch for friends / family.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lovely place, secluded and ideal for a quiet lunch with family or friends. The food is fresh and tasty, cooked / grilled by the owners and worth the price. Lovely scenery from the restaurant.

“Out of this world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Rolf's is a world of its own, its an experience. Right from the entrance to the service and the food, you feel the difference. Dangling on the suspended bridge particularly after a few drinks, leaves your nerves on the edge.

“Classy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Really enjoyed our day trip to Kitengela with friends followed by tasty lunch at Rolfs. Please keep an eye on your children though.... bouncy castle was left a little too close to a ledge.
