This place has a great mix of local food and internacional food, mainly seafood. We had a swahili fish that was outstanding and also the thai fish, that was very nice.

Very nice and affordable seafood, nice place, good staff, but on windy days the restaurant is too drafty, as it is on the beach and completely open to the winds

Despite the wonderful location and ambitious menu, the food fails to deliver, leaves a lot to be desired and is of a rather poor quality, in particular breakfast. Very limited choice (eg just weetabix as the only cereal even with the Yoghurt/muesli option) The fruit juices sounded promising as they are freshly made, on occasion quite delicious, but generally too...

We had a fantastic lunch. They have seating looking onto the beach so it was perfect. The food was great with huge portions. The staff very friendly.

Blue Marlin is always somewhere we will recommend to friends however visiting this time was a little disappointing after our visit last December.

We had heard that Blue Marlin had turned things around so thought we would give it a try for lunch. I am pleased to say that it was excellent. A great peaceful beachside restaurant with beautiful views and lovely seafood. Well worth a visit.
