Naivasha’s Best Kept Secret: The Delightful Ranch House Bistro

A couple of weeks ago, a couple of us piled up in a car and sped off to Naivasha for a pleasant weekend away from Nairobi.

Upon arrival, Chris was kind enough to host us for the weekend. We then proceeded to cause chaos in his beautiful house by the lake. In order to have some peace of mind, he suggested that we check out the latest addition to the restaurant line up in Naivasha, the Ranch House Bistro for lunch.

This sounded like a solid plan. We hopped into the car and headed down Moi South Lake Road. Of course we raced right past the sign, screeched to a halt, reversed and then turned right into the gate. Apologies for the poor quality pictures, I did not have my Canon on me… 😦

Upon driving in through the gate we thought, for  a split second, that we were lost…..

We each ordered something different so that we could try out as much as we could in one seating….

Everything was delicious! I must say that the banana and Nutella crepes were exceptional. We ordered two more of them just because we could not have enough. Here are more pictures of the bistro and its surroundings.

It is customary to judge a restaurant by it’s bathrooms.. And I give the bathrooms at Ranch House Bistro two thumbs…. up!
