Located near the Amani Beach Hotel in Tiwi beach. This is an empty place which should be avoided at all cost. A 2 rooms apartment rented to unsuspecting tourist booking through the Internet. Half of the house was built on neighbours' property, Dirty and unsafe.

Our first meal cooked by Ben was long before he built his little beach side restaurant and every year we return to Tiwi Beach we visit Ben to both eat and catch up with his news. Every meal we have ever ordered has been delicious and served with a real passion for food. We often leave menu choices up to... More

I have been staying in Tiwi for year's and this restaurant is always a must visit. Beautiful and secluded the owner, Ben has built it from nothing. This is not five star dining or Michelin stuff. It's a local man who has a small beach side piece of land and has made it into a business. Ben does the waiting... More

This restaurant was really fantastic. More suited to Families with children of all ages. We were a couple but it was enjoyable all the same. The staff, weather, hotel, food were all fantastic. We couldn't fault it in any way. We had an issue with an order item next and it was sorted immediately and was also followed up by... More

Drop your idea of staying on Diani. This must be one of the nicest stretches of beach in the whole area. Ben and family have a little cove which, if you are lucky, you and your group might have all to yourself. It's a beautiful spot for camping, swimming, eating, drinking and they also have a decent self-catering house that... More

We were staying at the Amani Tiwi Beach Resort and fancied eating somewhere else for a change. We discovered that just up the beach, around 100 yards north, is this little bar and restaurant owned by Ben. He's not been going long but will cook for you whatever you want. He specialises in Seafood and Swahili dishes. We had BBQ... More
