Was there easter Monday and was disappointed that trout is only available in the menu as one option...platter for two. I was with my toddler so couldn't order this platter :( had to settle for tilapia. The tilapia was just OK, the service was OK but as usual the ambience is amazing. Previous experiences have been good so am willing... More

Easter Sunday can be expected to be a busy day for lunch, so throw the inability in the equation to book a table in advance, and a hit and miss staff system on the fly with disgruntled customers all over is probably a reasonably expected outcome. Forgotten orders, incorrectly delivered dishes, stupendous waiting times and customers resorting to self service... More

We have always wanted to visit this restaurant but are quite rushed when in this area. We finally did it and weren't disappointed at all! We ordered the Trout and loved it. A definite come back! Watch out for the Colobus monkeys!

Would you miss such a quiet place? How about their meals? For fish lovers, this is fish paradise. For naturals like me, this restaurant is in a class of its own in this town

Fantastic food & great service. We had a group of 32 people & they had no problem feeding us all in a timely manner. We were able to see a whole troop of Colobus Monkeys playing in the trees before we even sat down to order. I had the Tilapia & it was a Huge plate of food & was... More

This is my second time eating at trout tree. The portions are very generous. This time I got the fish and chips and it was really good. The chocolate cake was also delicious. I brought a large group so I recommend making reservations. It was also fun to see the free roaming colobus monkeys and the hyrax running around the... More

Amazing ambience, good food served hot and on a wooden plate/platter. Watch out for the colobus monkeys, they are cheeky and can snatch a meal off your plate..the fish is great.

After quite a long trek up from Nairobi and an over-long BA flight from Heathrow (aircraft tech on ground for 2 hours before we even left...11 hour flt in total), the Trout Tree where we were met by our Daughter & family was an oasis of peace in a fig tree! The calming running water of the trout farm and... More

We had a great lunch in this quirky open air restaurant just outside My Kenya reserve. We'd walked up the hills with a guide to the place where the Mau Mau hid from the British army and made it to this place before it rained. Great menu. Lots of monkeys around in the forest.

Still our best place for fish. Nothing like Spicy grilled trout on a lazy hot sunday afternoon. Once you have the trout there is no turning back - you're hooked - just like the fish - forever
