Enjoying the sunset at Nautilus is just fantastic together with delicious food and great company from the owners and the team working there. I have visited the restaurant frequently over the last two years and have never been disappointed. Especially the oysters, tortellini, fish, well everything, is really wonderful! A must when visiting beautiful Kilifi!!!

Best restaurant north of Mombasa. Food, Host, but the location, well don't just take my word for it, is to die for, especially watching the sun setting over the creek. Went with six fantastic friends after our wedding blessing at Mnarani, what a feast Pietro, and as for the shots of sambuco and limonchello well it just got better. It... More

Best food I had in Kenya! I came from Mombasa to Kilifi to have lunch in Nautilus, and it was worth it. Fresh seafood, prepared with love and attention. Even more special was the way Pietro and Leslie welcomed me in their restaurant, I felt like a friend in stead of a customer. Thank you so much!

We went for dinner as a party of eight (4 adults, four children) as a result of recommendations from friends. A nice water taxi ride from Mnarani into a setting sun and a very welcome greeting at the jetty. The... More

This restaurant is a treat! We were so warmly welcomed and made to feel as if we were VIPs - and enjoyed one of the best fish meals I have ever eaten as we watched the sun set over Kilifi Creek from the balcony. Sea food cooked to perfection - fantastic service and a really friendly family atmosphere. You must... More
