The food was nothing to write home about but was nothing to complain about either. If you want a place to sit outside under the stairs and by the beach and sea then its just the ticket. Bands and local cultural acts often perform here in the evening.

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.
