I regularly stop over here on my way to the north. After leaving Nairobi at 6am the 9:15 breakfast is very welcome. Staff friendly and good food. Also pizza for lunch is excellent.

Situated on Nanyuki airfield this is a friendly and relaxing restaurant. A good menu range and good tasty food. Spend an hour or two in the shade watching the various aircraft movements.

My husband had the chicken in a basket - the chicken was dry very unappetizing. I had a bacon, lettuce and tomato - which I asked for on brown bread. I received it on a white... More

Barneys is a good pit stop at the Nanyuki airport. After a few days in wilderness tourists can hook on to the free wifi and have excellent sandwiches and beverages at Barneys.

Very nice food, good pizzas, clean loos and great surroundings. For kids they can watch the airplanes take off and land and play with metal rhino garden ornaments.

Went for a late breakfast. Food was nice (although they weren't serving the entire menu at that time). However, the staff were very unfriendly and seemed uninterested. Good food though.

Barneys has great staff and great food. Good for a light lunch or late breakfast. The sandwiches are something special and the milkshakes are cold and refreshing, perfect for a lazy afternoon.
