Kenya's only floating restaurant is just one in a million. I was really freaking out when the waiters came to serve us because when they stepped on the wooden platform the whole thing would almost like slant on one side. really amazing experience and i would love to go back there..

I have been going to this place for now almost 10 years or more.. Never had enough of it.. Just love the ambience of this place and location .. Though now coz of the traffic it gets bit tiresome to reach the restaurant. But if not gone as yet then do check it out .. It's worth it

Last evening i visited moorings for a sun-downer drink once again. the atmosphere is great as you watch the sunset. In the evening the waiters tends to be overwhelmed - something that needs to be looked into. Have a variety of credit card PDQs - tends to rely on one merchants and the signals are not always to the max.... More

Great location, tried oysters for the first time in my life, good food, a bit expensive though. The walk back to the car can be a torture because of the hill leading down to the restaurant.

My maiden visit to moorings was for new years eve dinner, we were warmly received and promptly seated despite not making an advance booking.

The juice served was said... More

I took lunch there with some colleagues during a working visit. It was a hot and humid day, as it often is at the Kenyan coast, so the constant breeze at the restaurant was perfect for lunch. The restaurant is on a floating structure. They have a variety of dishes on the menu, including fresh seafood. On this visit, I... More
