“little too expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Good food, friendly staff, free Wi-Fi, nice setting, easy to find (which is not that usual for Jambiani), but on the expensive side for the location and no pizza.

“STYLE AND GOOD FOOD ON THE BEACH”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

It has helped to make our stay in Jambiani all the more pleasant and enjoyable-Mimo has done a wonderful job on the decor-the menu changes-this is seriously good food in a wonderful location and we have never been disappointed with a meal or a snack.

Try it out-and as for European prices as mentioned in another review-well that must be some undiscovered corner of Transylvania-this food is not expensive-certainly not for the quality and the setting.

“tasty food for a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

service is very professional and attentive.

and they have internet connection and notebooks to use, but it's depending on power cuts, which often occur around 7 pm.

“Great service and very cozy restaurant in Jambiani”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is one of the better restaurants in Jambiani.... The owner was often there, making sure everything ran smoothly... The waiters were very alert and polite.

The best part was the atmosphere and setting, the perfectly chilled wines, and the free WiFi. And also that you didn't have to order food a half day in advance like ALL the other restaurants on the beach....

This was actually our favourite restaurant on Jambiani, and the most reliable one... so we went back there several times. This was the only place where you could go and get a meal after a reasonable amount of waiting time, and not 3 hours like most other restaurants!

We were a week in Jambiani over New Years and this restaurant decorated BEAUTIFULLY with fresh flowers... I have got amazing photos from that!

“Not the good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

We were nicely welcomed by the Italian owner. Food was good, but to our surprise shrimps were with sand. South African white wine was also nice but expensive - European level of prices.
