Meeting some friends to celebrate Mashujaa Day we were surprised to see very little customers in La Marina. As usual the staff were very friendly and helpful although the expresso machine was not the best start to the evening. As we waiting for our party to arrive we noticed there was only about ten people eating in the restaurant on... More

After many visits in the last few years, I still rate La Marina as about the best restaurant in the Mombasa/Mtwapa area. The waterside setting is delightful, the service friendly and helpful and the food on the well-designed menu is beautifully-cooked and presented. it says something for the attitude of the staff that when we told them on our last...

Just got back from lunch at this place, what can I say? Ambience was very good,service was very good, but the food was terrible, the worst I have had so far in Mombasa. Truly speaking the ambience is so good that if they were to charge a stupidly high charge just for their tables and chairs we would pay but... More

La Marina is a little difficult to find but once you finally get there, it is worth the long drive through Mtwapa. The seafood was fresh and very good. And the service was outstanding, with a great view of the creek. I would go back there again. The only thing I would urge the restaurant to improve on is on... More

La Marina provided transportation to and from the restaurant from our hotel on the Bamburi coast, which was great especially since the restaurant is hard to find if you're not familiar with the area. We had a lovely, quiet table near the water, outside under the stars. The menu was extensive and the food was good.
