Kunta kinteh is situated on a nice stretch of kotu beach. Free sunbeds as long as you buy drinks from here. The drinks and food are all reasonably priced and the waiter service is a nice touch.

I remember when it was just a shack on the beach, it has now grown into a good eating place and reasonable prices. Friendly staff but beware of the bumsters trying to get in on a free dinner. If they come and sit at your table uninvited ask the management to get shot of them and they will unlike badala... More

Used Kunta Kinteh as a venue for delivering a training day. Facilities are excellent, and, throughout the day staff ensured that refreshments were replenished and cleared away. Food was excellent: both in quality and presentation. Staff were personable, professional and mindful of my colleagues needs. Colleagues were very appreciative and felt they had been very well looked after. Would highly... More

Boat trip was good with escort part of the way both up and down by dolphins !!!!!, The historical background of the places visited on this excursion made it quite interesting.

The Kunta Kinteh restaurant is a great place to eat either during the day as a convenient lunch spot one can wander into straight off the beach, or a venue to visit for an evening meal as an alternative to eating at your hotel. The food is good with a range of dishes to choose from including traditional Gambian meals.... More

Easy to get to from Palm Beach Hotel, and better food than that Hotel. Staff pleasant, location good. Not expensive, but food OK. Just go up the beach 30 yards and John Raymond's is better, though it looks worse.
