The staff and scenery are lovely. The food is not great...overpriced and average. It is a lovely place to go and sit by the water for a couple of drinks. We preferred not to eat there. Try the "Dawa", a tropical drink from Kenya.

As many others have said: great location, good menu and good cooking, right down by the creek. My only complaint is the music - just turn it off completely and let guests enjoy the sounds of nature: the coast breeze through the palms, the birds,...More
