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

Overall average, friendly staff, nice location but it seems expensive for what it is. Avocado with shrimps were tasty however I felt they were frozen shrimps. $45 for 1 starter, pasta, grilled squid & water bottle.

Fantastic spot but sickly sweet margarita and undercooked doughy pizza. Waiter confused most of the time. One drink took over an hour to arrive. Bill arrived with random things on it we hadn't ordered.

This place is totally overrated and their website is completely misleading. Ceviche and raw fish was a disaster, chewy and stale, but the owner kindly took that off the bill. Two of us ordered the sea food tagliatelle but my pasta was totally undercooked and...More

It is a nice beach restaurant. The food was quite good. The kids had plenty of room to play as they waited for the food. The service was also excellent.

This is really a fantastic stop-off point. You sit at lunch (or on the beach) with a view full of two stunning islands only a few minutes walk from the beach at low tide. The sand is pure white. The good isn't quite that good...More
