“Peaceful chilled, beach bar with a paradise view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

Lovely beach bar, relaxing sofas with an amazing sea view, went twice, handy wifi, and tvs for footy fans..good service geeat location on the stunningly beautiful Diani beach, on 2nd visit we stayed for food and it was delicious highly recommend the chicken and chips so tasty and great portion size, with camel rides and souvenirs available just outside on the beach, great place to kick back relax on the huge sofas and watch the sunset. It rained a little and was hilarious watching all the crabs run in for cover lol..only let down was my partners mojito, not nice.. but beer, juices, soft drinks were great, some coloured people have complained they didnt get served very well but didnt see this ourselves butmy advise to management and staff would be we all have the same colour blood and money, treat us all the same. Maybe they think the white travellers tip more ? Any way would go again and wish we'd had chance to try Alibabas cave restaurant next door maybe next time x

“A cool place to hang out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Finally managed to visit 40 theives after I got told about it nearly 2 years ago and I very impressed.

Located right on the beach front, a very chilled out place to hang out.

Food is typical English pub food, burgers, pizzas which suited me down the ground.

Great service, great location, great food.

Some where not be missed if you are out and about in Diana.

“Star Lit Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

The service was good, I was pleased with the fact that the waiters know their stuff. The food was excellent from the presentation to the meal it self. The whole idea of dining in a cave under the stars and the rich history made dining here a memorable experience..

“British Beach Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Beach bar - a bit too British according to me... Seems to be the only beach bar at this stretch of the beach, so a lot of folks hang around drinking beer at 10 in the morning, with some football match on the screen..well, not my cup of tea. Maybe it was also a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time...
