Visited the restaurant twice during a short stay at Word of Life, Mombassa. On each occasion enjoyed the home made ice cream, a few local beers and coffee. Have had speedier service and the bill needed to be corrected on one visit. The decor, surroundings and ice cream make up for the small shortcomings.

Excellent food and service. Very comfortable. Bear in mind you pay European prices. But it's worth it.

Leonardo's continues to retain its high standards of good service hygiene and friendly atmosphere This is my place of choice on a Sunday morning to gain a little peace and down time while my family go to church....

Having seen the restaurant looking busy on our way in we were confident we would be in for a pleasant lazy sunday lunch but we left rather disappointed. My wifes' Pomodoro e Mozzarella turned up as a plate of cured meat... More
