The River House is an extension of Shanga River House and the restaurant is tucked in behind the work areas and shop. First approached, you walk through a garden along cement mosaic path blocks locally made. There is a shaded seating area with deep wooden couches and lots of pillows and cushions. This is a wonderful place for after lunch coffee and a repose. If you are lucky the local tree hyrax and vervet monkeys will entertain. For us, lunch was a buffet of local delicacies. The chef gave a clear explanation of each item and we got to try our hand at stirring the stiff ugali (a polenta type porridge). The circular "placemats" designed liked Maasai beaded collars are in keeping with the theme. The open air restaurant is cool and serene. Service is professional. Beer, wine and pop are available on the menu at a reasonable price. As this stop was part of a tour, I cannot comment on lunch price. Very pleasant interlude.
