Whenever I'm in town the boys & I make it a point to venture into town at night and feast on nyama choma (grilled meat). The pork, beef, chicken and goat are all fantastic accompanied by kachumbari (Kenyan salad), ugali and chips. My favorite is the goat, absolutely delicious! As my boys are there often we're very well taken care... More

The Place is nice. Bella Vista is not a restaurant, it's a pub, better disco pub. So the food and the service is not bad in this category. So if you want drink something and listen music it's OK. If you are looking for a good restaurant look around. In any case please look your bill. I go there three... More

Well, this place has a ground floor and an upper level with seating that overlooks the street. There was a "church" across the street which was a bit loud as the Pastor praised the word of the Lord, but I took that as cultute and the sounds of a diverse city. The service was ok; the waiter messed up on... More

My first time at Bellavista Moi Avenue and it didn't dissappoint. Having been thoroughly dissappointed at Sheba ( wish I could find them here I write a bad review) I was looking forward to enjoying my last day in Mombasa. I did enjoy. For the first time I found myself in the pub at 6am... What a place.

I have been to Mombasa many times but I never venture into the City Centre, my last visit however, offered a rare chance to be in Mombasa Island by night, I ended up at Bella Vista, nice place with excellent service. Music is loud, but sometimes that is the environment that you need.

Excellence, in this case is an understatement. Ranging from the state-of-the-art setting of the restaurant to the high quality service offered,Bella Vista is undoubtedly one of its kind. The luscious food, latest music and youthful nature effortlessly attracts many not forgetting superb location.

This even on a request to them to serve a single measure but the management insisted... More
