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

The restaurant announces already in the menu that it... More

What more could you ask for? A beautiful location on the white powder beach, wonderful, truly fantastic seafood and just the most relaxed and laid back ambiance you could ever hope to find. I really think that for most people a long, lazy afternoon here would be a holiday highlight. If you are in Mombasa, Mtwapa is not far and... More

Savia and I have lived in Vipingo Beach on and off since 2005. We had never been to the Jumba Ruins site in Mtwapa and didn't know about the Monsoons Restaurant. How we have missed out. We went there yesterday for lunch and can say it was first class. A menu to die for, if you are a sea food... More
