Super food and wonderful location

Great restaurant in an idyllic location alongside the beach at Mtwapa Kikimbala, offering a novel twist on African cooking including the cook your own experience of the Jiko bar b q at the table

We managed to squeeze a late afternoon visit to the Maridadi when we were over in October. We love the ambience there - it feels so decadent to be eating and drinking literally a handful of yards from the ocean. We only wanted a one course meal but of course the attentive waiter had to get all the blackboards out... More

We dined here first as a break from the boredom at our hotel's restaurant up the beach. It was fantastic! Seafood Cannelloni was incredible! We had to go back another time to eat it again.

we have often visited this restaurant in its perfect location on the beach. we stay in a nearby hotel and it is great that the maridadi always send a car to pick up diners and return them safely afterwards at whatever time you request. the food is always perfect and the german owners are lovely. the staff are extremely helpful...

Situated in a wonderful location off the beaten trak in Kikambala. Food is very good, if a little over-priced. Service and waiting time need to be improved. Similar in location to Monsoon but lacks the little touchs. With speed up of food and service this place will improve as this slowness is not reflected in the prices. For these prices... More

A nice place by the sea where a cordial staff will welcome you, a very extensive and tempting fish menu also if many dishes were not available, we opted for the seafood platter and was not exactly what we were expecting due to our previous experiences in seafood restaurants in the coast, taste not bad but in very small portions...
