“Superb seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Don't worry about Nairobi's distance from the sea. This restaurant has been serving the best seafood in town for around three decades now.

“Wow, this is the place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The food is great, the atmosfere and ambiance is great. The chef prepares very tasty food and visits each table. Service is unfortunally avarage and not at the same level as the food.

Best restaurant in Nairobi, it's on the upper side of things so good for occasions like anniversary,B/day or a romantic dinner. Not for kids though.
