The only reason I didn't give it 4 stars was the quality of service. We had a tired, inexperienced waiter who kept fumbling basic orders. Otherwise we were pleasantly surprised by the menu offering and the food quality was on point. One thing to note : they don't take credit cards but if you insist, they make you trek all... More

A friend and I were staying at a villa 10 minutes from the restaurant. Fellow guests advised us to spend the day at Papa Remo, where we could rent chairs on the beach and have some great food. Thank goodness we took their advice. The beach-front here is fantastic and we had it all to ourselves. We were welcomed warmly... More

This restaurant is located on one of the best beaches in Watamu. The views are superb so if you go don,t forget your camera. You can dine in a private setting or in the main restaurant.

all the seafood dishes are excellent! if sailfish carpaccio is available - go for it, to die for! grilled seafood platter is very generous, easily can be shared between 2 people.

Don't miss this place if you visit Watamu!! Stunning location, great quality of food and service (italian style!!) in a magic environment. Nice events take place too and it is perfect if you love to be bare foot in the sand, having supper in candle light.. I wish I could have stayed longer but I'll be back for sure!

We had supper here, early one evening, we did book as one of our party had minor physical difficulties. From start to finish the service was excellent. The food was second to one, we all had different. Hokies from jumbo prawns to crab salad. Beautifully served and presented. Would highly recommend.

Had gone for the watamu Rugby festival though it seemed not well organised but the bar set up didn't disappoint ...The cool breeze from the sea was good especially with the hot weather but it's crazy past 8/9 pm I would suggest that they mount a temporary makuti wall to counter abit of it but nway it's an awesome place

si trova subito fuori watamu ma non sono sicura del comune in cui sia situato. E' comunque un ristorantino sulla spiaggia, isolato, molto ben curato, con servizio ombrelloni e lettini, non molto grande
