The ambience and food is very good. Their choice of both veg and non-veg dishes is well balanced. They have a separate area for shisha smokers ensuring customers their privacy. They have good choice of wines as we'll. Overall it is nice though a bit pricey.

The hotel is located overlooking the Tudor creek of Mombasa. The food is great but quite pricey. At the wrong times it can be quite noisy so it is very good for those who love nightlife. If you are looking for a quiet evening this may not be the place. Good for lunch though not too many people will be... More

I've been meaning to go to Thalassa since it first opened, as friends went then and were impressed by a modern, adventurous menu and high quality food, this image was reinforced by many of the reviews which kept it in the top two or three Mombasa restaurants over the next couple of years but for a variety of reasons I...

I usually make it a point to have at least one meal at Thalassa whenever I visit Mombasa. The staff is always courteous, the ambiance pleasant and the food great. Their menu might not be too large, but it helps that they keep changing it every few months- and I kind of prefer that. I happen to be suspicious of... More

I made a long overdue visit to Thalassa Restaurant last Friday evening with 2 friends. The 3 of us all live here on the North Coast. I wanted to go as it is probably the last of the ‘better class’ Restaurants I had never visited. The place itself is beautiful – well decorated – good views – very welcoming staff.... More

I like my steak rare. But it had been rare to find a restaurant that could satisfy me...until I visited Thalassa. Kudos to the chef. After dinner we moved to the bar overlooking the creak...AWESOME! Very friendly barman and the view...well, we loved it.

This place felt like such a discovery the first time I went -- it's got a very hip and peaceful vibe situated on the Tudor Creek, and the lengthy Lebanese section of the menu makes for a unique set of options in the Mombasa area. For better or worse, like many restaurants in Mombasa, the menu is an eclectic array... More

While visiting Mombasa a local suggested we try out this place so we stopped over for dinner later in the day. The ambiance as one enters the restaurant is magnificent and the staff are very smart and welcoming. The service was very good and the food was just perfect. Highly recommended to everyone and the prices are not expensive. Very... More
