They are better than any that I have had in the UK. The presentation is superb too. The setting is of course unique and most tranquil. If you have not... More

I would wish to point out a few things that I was not comfortable with when I visited your restaurant on Saturday evening at around eight thirty and I was there until eleven o’clock in the night. We ( me and my Husband) came in and a female waiter served us; we placed an order of Jumbo Prawns to be... More

The Moorings Burger has got better. It is now superb. A must for anyone who is not a vegetarian. The creek setting is fantastic.

Had a very nice lunch with some friends. Good service and food. Well worth a visit even from Kilifi where we were staying.

Moorings had been on my bucket list for a while. I finally did it last December, with my family for a dinner. Everything went very well: the service was excellent, the food too. The music that evening was good. Sad that wecwent there during the evening, after dusk, so we did not get to really have what I assume must... More

I was on holiday in Mombasa and we ended stopping here by total chance. The road leading to the restaurant is a bit dodgy and rough but on getting to it we were pleasantly surprised. Awesome range of sea food that was fresh and every bite was better than the last. The staff were also extremely attentive and helpful. Will... More
