The staff were very friendly and helpful, most especially the waitresses! The restaurant, which also has B & B accommodation, is conveniently located along the road and is close to Nyali (City Mall, Naivas Mall-which has a Java Coffee House) and is a few minutes walk from the beach so that was great. There is a really nice (albeit pricey)... More

The service is excellent, nice discreet attention from the owner and his staff. The food was first class. Presented beautifully and tasted superb. This was a great last night... More

I am writing this review probably in the wrong place but as the Accommodation side of this restaurant isn't publicised too much it deserves a mention. We stayed at Giardino's in one of the apartments (Hibiscus) for almost two weeks, pretty standard, but I was thankful for the aircon in the bedroom plus the fact it didn't tie us to... More

We stayed at Giardino's for a week and had a great time. The staff was very welcoming, the rooms where clean and any other special requests where handled with a smile. The food in the restaurant was amazing. I can highly recommend the sea food carpaccio! We are definitely coming back here next time.
