Le Rustique

Reviewed By AnHonestReviewer2014 - New York City, New York

Cocktails (martini glasses) are tiny, makes you feel you got half a martini for the price of one. You really need to do something about the food though....

Trout Tree

Reviewed By Belinda K - Perth, Australia

As soon as you park up and start walking into the "tree house" you know you are experiencing something special!
We sat right on the edge of the tree house in a bar like sitting with a comfy lounge and ate a number of different styled trout dishes.
They were so fresh and special, we had such a great time and the vibe and ambience was beautiful. We could have stayed all afternoon
Was interested seeing all the trout ponds and all at different stages. Great experience - make the effort and go go go!!!

The Eatery

The Eatery Restaurant has to be closed for exciting renovations during early 2013.(However The 'Get Beautiful salon' remains open) By May 2013 we re-open as the 'Courtyard Arcade', comprising of 9 shops and a NEW outdoor courtyard restaurant... alongside our popular salon, which is in process of moving within the same property to a new spot (but remains open!)

On getting into the restaurant, yes, a warm welcome is given.but that was just one of three good things noted. Waited a while to get a menu, more than five minutes, which to me is long considering it is such a small place, and everyone I found there had alady been served. When the lady to be my steward appeared she almost literally threw the menu at me, good thing it slid on the table didnt fall off. Their saving grace was a gentleman, very smartly dressed I have to admit, who i can only assume is the owner, who came to ask if I was ok. He was rushing off for a function and still took time to take my drink order, and make sure the Waitstaff came back to take care of the food bit. Very friendly man. Thanks, sorry didn't get his name.
Well, with him gone, I waited another twenty or so minutes for a HOT CHOCOLATE!!!! that was just average, milk wasn't adequate.
Waited another five or so for a simple toasted chicken Sandwich, another saving grace-their chef!!!!!! The salad was fresh, thought raining with olive oil rather than a drizzle, but the chicken Sandwich was in one word, sumptuous.
Had the food, as simple as it was, not been that good, I would not go back.
The owner and chef are getting a horribly raw deal with their Waitstaff and should do something about them. There are so many young ladies just hovering around, and more willing to help Caucasians than others patronizing the restaurant.
I hope to go back to have a try of their famous milkshakes and I sure hope they will not be so lethargic to locals.

Barneys

Situated in one of the buildings next to the airstrip, but still open to non flying visitors.

Reviewed By Madame_Trey - Nairobi, Kenya

Stopped at Barney's for in-between meal on the way to Sweetwaters. It's a surprisingly busy restaurant but the turnover was quick.
Our waitress was efficient and our food arrived exactly as ordered. I ordered the grilled veg Sandwich and was pleasantly surprised with the perfectly grilled, non-greasy, gooey cheese perfection. Kids had cheese and chicken quesadillas, which also elicited compliments.
Playground is small but it's a great novelty to eat surrounded by a functional airstrip. I would venture to call Barney's a must-do in Nanyuki.

The Old House

Visited here when staying with fiances mum who lives down the road. Not advertised anywhere - as far as I can tell, but popular with the locals. (I'm currently updating trip advisor with all the places I visited in Nanyuki).

Reviewed By WhitneyKoonce - Nairobi, Kenya

We stayed here with a group of friends. We ate our breakfast at the buffet each morning (basic Kenyan breakfast with fruit, boiled eggs and sausages, beans, toast).
We tried to do dinner here for convenience sake a few nights, but waited over two hours each time! The food was average. We tried ordering our meals when we left in the morning, thinking the restaurant could have the food ready for us when we returned in the evening, but that never worked.
The staff were very kind and treated us well, but the long wait for food was too much for me to recommend this place to friends.

Kongoni Camp

Kongoni Camp is situated less than 2 km North from Nanyuki Town off the Meru road. Set against the dramatic slopes of Mount Kenya, and nestled in indigenous forest with olive, cedar and relics of other tree species, Kongoni Camp has a peaceful energy about it. Tucked away in a tranquil surrounding, Kongoni is unique and rustic.Despite its proximity to town Kongoni is designed in a way that brings you closer to your environment by having you dine, have coffee or stay in a place surrounded by the wild, creating an attachment to the bush. The main building housing the bar& restaurant is laden with history. Originally built as a barn in the early 1960’s, it served as a storage for exclusive hunting Safaris, and has been carefully restored maintaining its original character. Kongoni’s spacious facilities make it an ideal venue for big groups and smaller parties. Kongoni is situated in a picturesque landscape, and home to many bird species. At least 75 bird species can be found on the extensive grounds.

Cape Chestnut Laikipia Sip & Dine Nanyuki

The charming and friendly setting of this venue attracts a loyal following. The colonial era ranch house with its own Gardens provides a traditional welcome to all those who are seeking a relaxed way of fine dining. The Friday Tapas Nights and the Fortnightly Sunday Curry Buffet Lunches are reputed to be breathtaking in their variety and taste.

Reviewed By Carly K - Nairobi, Nairobi, Kenya

Never disappoints. A small high quality menu of 5 or 6 dishes and normally a dessert, and ice cream option. Lots of Seating options (totally inside, semi outside covered or out in the garden. A little playground for kiddies. Service is friendly although on super busy days you might have to hunt a waiter down. Monthly curry and roast buffet (you choose which you want) are also delicious.

The restaurant is situated in a perfect location where animal lovers can enjoy nature while having a quick bite. The food I was not as expected, the portions were really small and the burger bread was dry. The chicken burger was also over cooked.

for me, this is the best restaurant/cafe in Nanyuki. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff friendly and welcoming. Best of all the food is fresh and delicious. The Beef Fajitas are the best I've ever had. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

LE RUSTIQUE LTD

Le Rustique Restaurant/Hotel is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Nanyuki offering modern Mediterranean cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week. Our intimate Mediterranean style dining room retains Moroccan ambiance. The unique layout with open fire, hard-wood ceiling terraces, fine table linens, modern art, original flag-stone floors and bright walls lends the feel of a wealthy, rustic country manor house in rural Morocco. We use the very finest organic and continental artisan ingredients to produce refined, modern Mediterranean dishes. The cuisine is supplemented by an excellent and well-considered wine list drawing vintages from both classic Châteaux and other continental and new world regions.

Reviewed By Carla C - Rome, Italy

The restaurant came highly recommended by colleagues who have been there on their way to Mount Kenya. We did the same and really enjoyed it. The place is nice, staff are friendly and the food was good. We loved their samosas, fish and burgers. Good choice of drinks as well. If you happen to be visiting that area, it is certainly a nice option.
