Yet again a pleasure to eat at such a fantastic restaurant. The food is excellent and good value. The staff are most attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Recommended - fish and chips - this would give any English equivalent dish a run for its money!

Started dinner with a trip on the Dow, a wonderful and scenic ride down the creek! As the sun set it was picture perfect, beautiful, calm and serene! Arrived back to the restaurant to a selection of lovely, fine dining cuisine from steak to seafood platters! This place is lovely, relaxing and has an amazing ambience! A must for all... More

The Moorings has a well deserved reputation as an excellent restaurant. The menu was complete and varied, the preparation and presentation very good, and the service good but not overbearing. The prices were as expected for a this standard of establishment, but we were pleasantly surprised at the low cost of our bottle of wine. The ambiance and lighting very... More

The food matches the setting floating on the Mtwapa Creek. A varied and well priced menu with well presented and attentively served food. The only thing I could fault is the over priced and over strength cocktails. Perhaps could reduce the amount of spirits increase the juice and cut the price. But sitting as the sun goes down over the... More

This is a great place for dinner, you're sitting on a table outside on the creek and all you can see is beautiful sunset! Also happened to be there on a night they had live music - a guy singing and playing guitar - and he was very good which is hard to find in Mombasa!! The food itself is... More

I've been to the Moorings several times both for lunch and for dinner over the last 6 or 7 years. For a variety of reasons I hadn't been Moorings for at least a couple of years, and I'd almost forgotten how pleasant a leisurely relaxed lunch there is. We've always eaten from the meat or seafood / fish menus in... More

The quality of the food has improved to the extent that it is the only restaurant that I wish to visit at the moment. The fish and chips beggars belief. 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
