Monsoons restaurant stand on an empty pristine beach with views out to sea or back towards the beauty of the Jumba ruins and botanical park themselves. The restaurant offers a delightful range of fresh seafood as well as Italian pasta dishes. It is a place where you want to spend the day with friends, drinking in the views with a glass of wine and a dressed crab or two. An incredible haven only seconds from the chaos of the beaches closer to Mombasa,a wonderful place for families,couples and special occasions Monsoons is to be savored, not rushed.

The food is fresh, taste is amasing. At the time we were only guests and had all attention from the owner and staff. We took a swim at the beautiful beach, ordered food, and when the food was ready we move in. The owner was more than friendly, we had a drink and small chat. All together, great experience :)

My in laws and I stumbled upon this little gem when visiting the 14th century ruins of Jamba! We ordered the red snapper, and it was just delightful! We also enjoyed he attentive waitress, the the interesting Italian proprietor. Anyone visiting this side of mombassa/nihali need to take the time...just look at my photos!

The best place to eat exquisitely prepared seafood. The ambiance of the restaurant is tranquil and exclusive. You must simply relax and enjoy the view of the ocean from this private beach front property and let the patron and his excellent staff take care of the rest.
