Hi Teedeeone! One of our core goals in our establishment is to offer accessible and great quality to all. So, read this review feels like an accomplishment of that goal! Thank you!

This historical, old world charmer sits directly opposite the entrance to Fort Jesus, and at the main access point to Mombasa's Old Town, both of which are must dos during any Mombasa visit. The establishment has a deep, wonderful history, much of which is displayed...around the internal walls in pictures and photos. The staff are very courteous, and were considerate to every request. The menu is varied, and whilst seafood is the specialty, there are sufficient options to satisfy most tastes. The ambience was emphasised by the background music, which took you back to a time of grandeur, pomp and ceremony, suitable for regal visits and dealings between wealthy statesmen. I strongly recommend a visit for coffee, tea or a meal.More

My family and I came here, excited for the seafood. First the seating is quick, but the service takes forever. When my meal finally got here, I was expecting it to be delicious. Well I got a rude awakening the pasta was overcooked, and the...sauce was smelly and there was no fish insight of the plate. I was disgusted first taste and last. I left hungry save yourself the trip.More

The service was very good, we had an attentive waiter, a lady. I think she was Phoebe.. Or Rhoda. It is a cosy place, with photos of Old Msa. The food was very good and we were served in good time.

The restaurant is located right next to fort Jesus. It is a very relaxed and nice place for just enjoying your food with friends and family. I wanted to find lobster and the restaurant offered that. It was so delicious and tasteful! I ate everything!...The prices are a bit expensive compared to other places. The service was good, but I had to wait on my food for almost an hour. I recommend this place, but you will have to be patientMore

My wife has had an eye on coming to this restaurant especially as she made the photoprops for the opening of the place. So Valentines dinner was the perfect opportunity to have a meal here. The place is cosy with wall decors of old Msa...pics. Friendly staff who will guide you to the menu too. We had ordered pizza as starter and a fish & prawn dish as mains. Food came in reasonably good time. It was nicely served and portions were good too.The quality of food was nice as well. Had a good time and enjoyed the meal. Definitely will visit again to try out other items.More
