Was very good but now is no longer trading. Owners have returned to the UK & business no longer exists. Great pity as it was very good. If you want a good lunch in Watamu I now suggest that you try Ocean Sports.

Does anyone know where Mike and Jackie who used to run the Savannah Bar & Restaurant in Watamu have gone ? We had such a good time there a couple of years ago and they were such nice people we would like to meet up with them again.

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.
