Amazing setting!

Great seafood in an amazing setting. Three visits proves I love it. Prawns and calamari are the stand out - slow service is a problem, but the place makes for a great lunch out.

The place is just wow ! the staff very helpful and always there in case of any assistance. A very good breeze which turns the place a good adventure for night life away from Mtwapa crowded bars along the high way. Will definitely come back! they provide pick and drop services ( transport) upon advance booking at no cost.

Even though i Just passed by the place for a quick snack, the timing was perfect for watching the sunset. I had an amazing half hour there and the place doesn't look like it's even in Mtwapa, due to the long natural road

Although we had to wait it was worth the wait, each of us had different ways to prepare and serve fillet steaks which were cooked to perfection. Waiting was the more enjoyable as we enjoyed a perfect sun set. Sifa our waiter was particularly friendly and had a great sense of humour

We were here for valentines dinner. The place was packed lucky for us we had a reservation but had to wait a while at the entrance for someone to usher us to our table. The welcome felt hurried as it was obvious that it was full, the resurant setup was nice overlooking the creek from any table. Our waiter guided... More

This gem of a restaurant is tucked away off the main street but with great views over the creek at Mtwapa. The menu is superb - lots of seafood, but with plenty of other options. The welcome is effusive and genuine, the service impeccable and the food is top notch. Less expensive than the Tamarind (less well-publicised). We have eaten... More
