I went to Rolf's on account of the famous bridge entrance. This is a beautiful sight to behold, as you enter the establishment. The hotel itself sits on a sort of rocky gorge that offers spectacular views. There is an option of sitting on the...More

You park your car and then taking a swinging suspension bridge across a deep gorge, over to Rolf's Place restaurant. We got there early and got a nice table overlooking the river gorge. Two lovely soups, one Zanzibari seafood, and one cold avocado. Lunch was...More

It's beautiful. End of. Unfortunately everything other than what it looks like is pretty terrible. The service is bad, slow and you feel like you're being a burden every single time you ask for anything! You need the patience of a saint to have lunch...More

The view is magnificent. The hanging bride one and only. And that is almost all. Food is tasty, but be careful what you order. If you order Veal, unless you ask, they will not tell you through the menu that includes pork also. Service is...More

On a public holiday you'd imagine that there would be ready for a busy day. Instead only 2 waiters were working - and the service was slow and grumpy. We ordered 2 sides of chicken wings which instead of being grilled or fried, where stewed...More

The location is spectacular with the outdoor dining tables literally situated over a small gorge and the suspension bridge from the parking lot that leads you to the hotel and restaurant was fun to cross. We were seated right away and give our menus, embossed...More

It's a bit of a drive to get there on a dodgy road and through a neglected part of the city. Once there, the lodge looks impressive and we were greeted by a Masai in dress. I thought the team were polite and helpful. I'm...More
