It was a nice place in the beginning. But, sorry to state this, a steady go-down for the last two years or so. If you were lucky , food could be ok, but very often disappointing.Service poor, no proper management The owners closed the place without further noice, and disappeared from the scene.

Had dinner here a couple times on our recent trip to Watamu staying with family. We went for the quiz and had the burgers as recommended to us. Food was good and quiz was good fun too. They coped with a power cut one night well. Only thing I would say is that my family support this local restaurant and... More

Tucked away down a bumpy side track, this is a little piece of British style pub food. Generous portions so go careful if you have starters too! Prices are reasonable and there are plenty of tables either in the open sided restaurant or on the outside terrace, all enclosed within a garden and car park guarded by a Massai on... More

I can only say this was the most disgusting food I have had in many months. Given we were at the coast can't believe the prawns came out of a freezer bag. Prawn cocktail one soggy revolting mess. Slow service, two hours after we got there we were offered our starter. Not exactly as though the place was that busy... More

Had a very good early dinner with my husband - food was good (fish cooked very well although vegetables were over-cooked) and owner was very courteous as Visa machine was not working, we had no cash.... The owner just told us to go back and pay the next day! Very much appreciated :) - if you are vegetarian the choices... More

If you like excellent food in the most relaxing venue this is a must. Mike and Jackie and just the best. Try the steak burger with the blue cheese sauce, magnificent.

Very clean and tidy with very friendly hosts who greeted us well. Was a limited menu due to lack of customers in the resort but something for everybody. Good portions and nice and hot with good service. If we had any issue it was just on the pricier side on cost but we all have to make a living! Liked... More

My little son and I visited Savannah many times during our stay in Watamu for dinner. An absolute excellent restaurant with wonderful home cooked meals, really the BEST burgers in Watamu. Friendly and attentive service too from the staff. We also attended a few of their "party" nights, which were great fun. Jackie, the owner, was so kind to the... More

Loved the atmosphere. Loved the food and loved the Tuk-Tuk return journey with Elijah! I wish Tripadvisor also listed Pilipans - another lovely restaurant in the area.
