If you want good food

Nice and spacious restaurant with excellent sea food with a view of the sea. Nice African Music in the background as you enjoy your food and drinks.

After ordering a glass of what was suppose to be white wine, looked rather like a flat cider with some awful bits at the bottom of the glass. The place itself you could imagine at the height of tourism would have been buzzing however that most certainly isn't the case now which is truly a shame. The food was not... More

Amazingly poor service followed by one of the worst meals I have ever encountered in Mombasa. Outrageous prices too !!! The owner is a fantastic gentleman but does he check on his product ? This is not the first time I have had a bad experience at this establishment.

This place has incredible potential but is let down but lack of marketing and enthusiastic management/staff. This place has had a make over with drapes and more open air lounge sitting setup ideal for hukka pipe smoking clients. I was pleasantly surprised to come here on a date and find it not crowded (that is not always a good sign).... More

The product is amazing - needs to drive in traffic. at times one gets a little lonely. Swimming is for free - thank you, but maintain it to crystal clear. for now its cut out as a very popular place in the evening for shisha. The view of the creek is breathtaking.

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
