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, the waves lapping, etc. The place does not need to have need a DJ (leave...

Wide sea food variety, very tasty too. The setting tops it off with a beautiful view of the creek. The service is equally good. One of the best restaurants in Mtwapa and its environs. A visit is never enough
