Eating at the moorings brings this amazing feeling from its the beautiful scenery of the creek, the bridge across, the occasional boat fishermen, the thicket environment surrounding the place and of course the floating experience.

Lovely scenery. Perfect place to go and wind down in Mombasa. Time it to coincide with when the sun is going down.

The location is phenomenal and a really great place to have a drink in the evening before settling in for some food. As with all restaurants, it isn't always perfect but... More
