“Very Disapointed”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Coming from Rhino Charge on the 2nd June, we made a stop-over at Barneys for lunch. The place was pack and had very poor service. We sat on the lawn having drinks as we waited for a waitress to find us a table. Net to us were some tourist who had given up waiting for a table and ended up having their lunch on the same lawn.

Moments later, the waiter return with a bill of our drinks and told us that she has been ordered not to server us since we had no table. We questioned why the tourist had been severed and what was different with us (Kenyans).
We got the Hint and left. Never to return back there again.

“A must stop”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The best break before tackling the arid Kenyan north. Refreshing meals in a calm atmosphere. My family's favorite along Nairobi-Nanyuki route.

“My favourite coffee stop!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

This is the best place to stop if you are on a road trip up to Samburu from Nairobi. A friendly coffee shop/restaurant located at the airstrip so there is always something going on. They do good takeaway coffee if you are in a rush (or your driver is!). Bathrooms are always clean and well presented. There is also a lovely gift shop. All makes for a very civilised break in your journey. I wish we had something half as good in Uganda!

“Good food and location”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Located at Nanyuki airfield. Brilliant, good menu items to choose from. Always busy, so always "guarantee" of fresh food. Staff courteous. Highly recommend as a lunch stop over coming from Nairobi and going north and vice versa.

“Great location let down by much else.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The restaurant is in the Laikipia airport so you can see the regional aeroplanes take off and land while you eat. It is also very conveniently placed on the Nairobi- Nanyuki highway.

Unfortunately, that brilliant location is let down by a lot else. The steaks we ordered were leathery, which must have taken some doing, given the generally high standards of Laikipia beef produced locally. The service was brusque, bordering on the surly especially from the lady who manages the establishment. Perhaps the day we visited was just a bad day and that it usually is better, but we have no intention of checking by returning there especially since there are many other much nicer restaurants close by.
