very attentive staff. It was very quiet and that scared us a bit as we thought popularity had died for some reason. Food was excellent though a bit on the expensive side

I love the setting and ambience of this place. One of the best in Mombasa. The staff is well trained. They offer the best seafood especially the Oysters and Lobsters. Though their vegetarian menu is not so good.

Was embarrassed, to have taken my guests there. Took over an hour for them to bring the bread basket! Food was mediocre at best. Spent so much time trying to get a waiters attention couldn't be bothered with what ever was on the table. If you enjoy getting a neck cramp looking for waiters, then this is the place for... More
