I went the first time to La Veranda and I wanted to taste the oysters. Unfortunately they only offer 24 pieces. I was together with my wife and as a starter 24 pieces are too much for us, so I asked the waiter if it is possible to order a half portion. After a while he got the ok from... More

The place is nice and the food was okay - but somewhat overpriced. Evening was spoiled for us by watching the Italian owner scold his staff a number of times within our earshot. I have worked in customer service and hospitality for over 20 years and a golden rule is you manage your staff discreetly - never subjecting the customer... More

Very nice restaurant with veranda and garden and air conditioned inside seating. We ordered mashroom soup and ricotta and spinach cannelloni. The soup was good, lacked a bit of pepper and salt but the taste of the mushrooms came out well. The cannelloni where a disaster. The sauce was thick not a bit creamy. No taste at all. We did...

An all time good place to go, to be and to eat. Real Italian food, home made pasta, Pizza from the wood stove. A good selection of Italien wines at a reasonable prize. Don't miss to stop for lunch or dinner.

Went here again with the family. Had a great experience. Kids really enjoyed the Pizza and steak. We ordered chicken breast with mushroom sauce. And pepper steak. Ordered extra sauce and that was provided too. The helping size was quite big but enough for a Saturday night. Was a bit surprised that when we asked for baked potatoes they couldn't... More

We visited La Veranda for Sunday Lunch with family just after arriving in Mombasa.. The menu is extensive, offering a wide range of starters, mains and desserts. The staff were efficient and friendly. We sat outside in the courtyard and this was well shaded and pleasant. Everything was spotlessly clean and the washrooms are lovely. The food was excellent, we... More

We went with family that lived locally and enjoyed the food immensely. Service was great and the owners were a very nice couple. Prices were quite reasonable and wine was good.
