Great restaurant all out doors with a great view of Mtwapa creek, Varied menu of meat and fish. Staff very attentive great for lunches or evenings, we hadn't been for a few years as the owners changed, but still a great evening.

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

If you want stunning seafood and a stunning view, then this is your heaven in Bamburi/Mombassa. We stayed at Neptune Beach and the hotel manager set us up with a reservation after asking for the best seafood in the area. The restaurant actually picked us up at our hotel and drove us there! This is unheard of in the states!... More

I visited this restaurant last month. The ambience was fantastic, but apart from this the food was just average, not too good and not too bad. Very limited selection of wines in the restaurant, the manager should get some good wines to serve by glass instead of just the cellar cask. I mean, anyone going to La Marina would expect... More

We ended up going there kind of by accident and as 2 Irish girls who absolutely adore seafood, we could never have imagined that the quality of the food would be so good!! The servers were so attentive, the food so fresh and every bite better than the last. The setting of this restaurant is wonderful too. Definitely on the... More
