I just felt at home instantly from the great reception. The place is hidden private and secluded. Very beautiful. Great service and food. Better than many popular places in Mombasa. I will definitely be a constant visitor here

We dined here first as a break from the boredom at our hotel's restaurant up the beach. It was fantastic! Seafood Cannelloni was incredible! We had to go back another time to eat it again.
