My wife and I are sitting having lunch at the Kerio View as I write this. To call this a magical place would be to undersell its charms. First, the view is stunning. You sit on an escarpment and look down into the Rift Valley. Colobus Monkeys and an abundance of birds dot the landscape.
We had a private cottage which was comfortable and quiet. The beer was cold and the food bountiful. Do know that everything is made to order when you come. The wait for the food can be a bit long because it is not precooked.
From the Kerio View you are less than a mile from the famous Kaminy running track as well as the Iten town center. The people are friendly and gracious and the staff of the hotel are wonderful. For us this is a can't miss spot which we will return to.

Mamma Mias Restaurant

Reviewed By Global35 - Oslo, Norway

Came with a colleague and we had a big selection of italian food. We had the cheese filled dough balls (v good!) and the fried eggplant (also good). The pizzas were a little bland, next time we'll go for Indian as they also serve. Also the place is a little dark inside, needs more light...service very good though and friendly.

Booked a tabke for 13 people. Arriving at 1930. We were all pretty hungry, and ordered pretty quickly after sitting down. Two hours later we were still waiting for our meals! We questioned the staff. Eventually some of the food arrived. Not even hot. Not to mention nothing like the menu description. We questioned the staff multiple times, and some of our food didn't even arrive. We had enough of waiting.
We were practically the on table in the place. Awful experience.

The ambiance and space size could discourage you but this place had nice meals. Especially the Indian cuisine. A very wide choice and fairly well done. The wine selection is rather limited.

We had a very good experience in this restaurant. The place is massive with different environments, bandas, restaurant, club, coffee, small halls, garden... Everything under one roof. The service was quite good for being upcountry and the quality of the food was superb. We love it!!
