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.

You go through a number of turns before you get here; but when you do, you've gotta love it. Beautiful place and nice food.

La Marina is an outdoor restaurant located along the river and has a very pleasant, relaxing ambience. The waiters are very polite and attentive while the food is delicious. We visited this restaurant twice during our recent trip to Mombasa. They offer a variety of international cuisine ranging from steak to seafood. They also cater for vegetarians. The portions are...

The most popular restaurant in mombasa for happy couples in love is closed for a private function on valentines night. The most bizzare thing I have ever heard. Greed is the word that comes to mind

Some friends and I went for lunch. What a find. Certainly the best place we had been to on the north coast. Great service and food at a very reasonable price. Extensive menu. It took us 45 mins to make up our minds what to order.

It was difficult to decide whether to give this restaurant 3 or 4 stars. The atmosphere was awesome - our table was right next to the water. The waitor was very friendly and the menu was interesting. La Marina was situeated somewhere quite remote - you wouldn't find it accidentally. That was why it was great that the restaurant offered... More
