I understand that there has been changes in management since my first visit and was slightly put off by some of the previous reviews but was pleasantly surprised. The service was good and the food was nice. My guests had fish fillet, chicken with mushroom sauce and i had lasagne. Very good portions and tasty. The Lasagne was not so... More

I'd been to La Veranda two or three times some time ago and found it rather ordinary, but ownership/staff changes persuaded me to tryn it again and I'm very glad I did. LV has no view, facing the back of the large Nakumatt supermarket, but it has comfortable seating both inside and on its terrace and table settings are well... More

Visited for dinner on Thursday 29 May 2014. From appetizers to wine to mains .... all excellent and food very fresh and tasty. A little pricey but well worth the money. Quite busy on a Thurs which tells me why food is fresh. Also popular with locals and tourists. Beef carpaccio, antipasti and pizzas were excellent. Italian red wine served... More

La Veranda has made many changes over the years. Decoration, Menu, Staff and Management, but always to the better. Right now a very pleasant place to be, no special view, but very nice atmosphere and great hospitality. A typical Italian Menu with home made pasta dishes to die for. Always good and fresh seafood and great grilled steaks with fresh... More

I have been eating here for over a year, and even though there have been a few ups and downs their new menu has made the choice and variety much better. Saying this they are still more expensive than La Marina, Hunters, Il Covo (food is awful here mind you) Yuls and several others. However, as is normal in Mombasa... More

A good Italian restaurant in Mombasa, situated next to Nakumatt shopping mall. We ate here four times during our vacation. Camberetti pizza was my favourite - prawn and delicious cheese. The portions were large, and the prices weren't too high. It was possible to eat outside. The owner came to greet us several times. Also the hazelnut ice cream I... More

This was partly owned by the owner of Eataly, which restaurant has overtaken La Veranda. Whilst it is good it has too heavily relied upon its past. It needs to upgrade and increase the portion size, which have been described as a little on the small side. This restaurant will I know become better.

Was there for an evening musical performance, and on asking to order a drink was directed to the bar by a waiter where I ordered my drink in line with the wait staff. Not letting this ruin my mood, I carried my drink into the performance hall for the evening's entertainment. After the show sat at a table with other... More
