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.

Located away from all the hotels it might seem a bit far for food but it is definitely worth the drive. A beautiful set up for a small restaurant. Make sure to call and book because its always full and its not that big. The food is just incredible. The flavours, the freshness, the portions, its all perfect. The food... More

It may be a bit on the pricey side but once you get your seafood platter all qualms will be laid to rest. Enjoy the atmosphere, explore nearby ruins, chat to the Italian owner and his Swahili wife who is the Chef and responsible for all the goodness that comes through their kitchen doors. But above all bask in the... More

Just a nice low key place, serves fresh fresh seafood, cooked to perfection. With the sand in between your toes and breeze in your hair. Just loved it. When there, take you time have a swim and a glass. Worth the wait. Great and friendly owner make you feel at home.

This is a great little place on the beach, just north of Mombasa. And when available it does the best steamed ginger crab on the coast! This is a laid back place, run by a husband and wife team - he chats, she cooks and you wouldn't want it the other way around ;) A great place to come to... More

We went the 5 of us for a lunch by the beach. Really beautiful setting, food was good (once it arrived); you get the best olives in town as a biting, we asked for more (even with payment) but no chance, we almost begged but it was simply ignored several times. The restaurant announces already in the menu that it... More
