We went to have lunch at La Rosada on Good Friday (hence were not eating meet). There was nothing on the menu for us to eat except for a Niscoise, minus the tuna, which came with absolutely no dressing. Service was good and attentive.

Although a nice place to eat with attentive staff they will try and charge you for sunbeds when they shouldn't. That said it's a great location for a bit of luxury downtime. When the sea goes out the water level for half a mile out to sea is only knee deep which is great for kids. You can see some... More

The location of the restaurant makes for everything else but to top it the service is consistently unrivaled. Food has never disapointed. I always look forward to having lunch whenever in Malindi

Best pizza I've eaten in Kenya. Waiters very attentive and kind. The only but is the slowness of the service when full.

You can never go wrong with la Rosada. Despite them closing the kitchen at 5pm, we arrived some minutes to it and they delightfully served us. Special shout out to Safari. He is always happy and of great service. His food recommendation to me has always been the best. Monday 16.01.17, as promised, safari diligently reserved our table as promised... More

The highlights: 1. Arrived at the restaurant at a busy lunch hour and managed to grab some seats at the dining area. Lovely setting, nice breeze, great view - no problem thus far. 2. We sit for about 10 minutes. None of the staff notice us, we try to get their attention but nobody is interested or busy. No problem... More

One day we spent at this beach. Was good. Simply beach with small bar. Was good to see different place and stay at the beach. Service was good. Nice place to stay couple of days!
