If you are the type who wants throbbing heavy beat so loud that you can't hear yourself think then this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you are the type, like me who enjoys talking to their companion(s) without shrieking and shouting, while having one of the old standard songs pleasantly murmured in the background, the outside area is spot on. I was there with my friend on a cold (well cold for Nairobi) Tuesday evening when it was good to be beside a chiminea (one of those portable outdoor fireplaces) full of charcoal or whatever. Music was great, wonderful big Malindi prawns were very good, if expensive (and why wouldn't they be?); the Malindi fish was good. the service was very attentive, unlike what other reviewers have found. I will definitely be going back soon. I see that it is only ranked about 58th - well I would sure like to know the names of the first 57!
