Quant rendezvous in Watamu

Most delicious homemade Italian ice-cream! It is not a restaurant but a little pavement ice-cream parlor where espresso's and patisseries are also served. A favorite meeting place. Anna and Andrea take great pride in what they do

This place was recommended as the best gelato, but we found the staff and owner to be really rude (sampling before buying is NOT allowed and it is explained with a sour expression and a shrug). We preferred the gelato shop up the road which had really friendly, helpful staff.

It is probably the best ice cream we had while in the Coast, a nice location in Watamu managed by Italians. Very good.

If you want a treat visit this place and sample the most delicious gelato. Tried a few different flavours and all great. Coffee also excellent. Not what you might expect to find in Watamu but well worth a visit.

Having vacationed in Watamu for five consecutive years - it was only last year December 2014 that we discovered this ice cream parlour. My entire family enjoyed the ice creams and the young team in our group had several other opportunities to go and treat themselves to ice cream. Visiting Watamu - and have never been to Anna & Andrea... More

We have great icecream in Vienna, mostly made by Italians. The icecream at Bahati is among the best. Peter

Per the norm, we visited almost daily while in Watamu. Each of us would order a bowl of ice cream and enjoy that while we waited for litres to be back for us to take back home. Gelato is yummy. Service staff are less than fantastic. I don't know whether that is meant to be part of the charm to... More

Really amazing selection of ice cream situated in the heart of Watamu village. The cakes look good but I had already eaten too much food next door, so had to settle for 2 scoops of ice cream and a fabulous espresso.

by far the best ice cram place in Watamu, uncomparable, croissants to die for, one is not enough, simple but beautiful setting with a coastal feel, outside seating is ideal due to the hot weather at the coast,all was great except for one unfriendly male waiter who had the guts to tell us to try somewhere else simply because he...
