Trout Tree Restaurant is built in an enormous Fig Tree along the Burguret River, below Mount Kenya.
The restaurant serves fresh Rainbow trout from the trout ponds below, char-grilled to perfection. The menu also includes prime Laikipia beef, and vegetarian options, while a kids’ menu is available on the weekends. The pizza oven is fired up to offer a variety of delicious pizzas. They also offer Dawa Cocktails. Dawa (‘medicine’ in Swahili) was invented in Kenya and is made from vodka, sugar, crushed ice cubes, lime slices and honey all mixed together.
60 people can sit comfortably in the restaurant trying to keep their food secure from the two troupes of resident Colobus Monkeys that live nearby. You can also get a glimpse of the tree hyrax and the abundant bird life in the surrounding trees.
This was a favorite haunt of the former US Ambassador to Kenya, Smith Hempstone. In the old days, the famous American Actress Stephanie Powers used to delight in the chef’s creations at the restaurant.
