Wow... Amazing food, venue and views! We had a variety of dishes, from Pasta to grilled fish dishes all with starters. No complaints from anyone, the food was mouth-wateringly great, it tantalised the taste buds. The calamari was cooked to perfection, the fish was wonderful and the staff even gave away the recipe for one of their marinades, absolutely delicious!... More

Yes, they have the best stretch of beach and on low tide you can walk for kilometers to the most beautiful little places over the reef. Service is impeccable, I had madafu straight from the tree, welcome drink and total attention to details. Food is great too!

Amazing place for lunch with a view. At low tide, can take a nice walk to the island opposite the restaurant. Good seafood. Family enjoyed the ice cream.

If there's a better beach on this coast we didn't find it! This quiet little hideaway is a short drive from the main road and well worth the short trip from local towns such as Malindi or even further afield Just around the corner from Ocean Sports as well! Lovely food in the most romantic of settings. Clean, today, well... More

We arrived on a rainy sunday, without a reservation ... Had to eat outside near the bar, but anyway the pizzas were very good, and the staff friendly ;-) Will go again but with a booking !

We came to Papa Remo for an early dinner. It's located on a beautiful part of the beach, the service was very friendly, and we had some great Italian food. It's a very good option on the beach!

This reataurant is daily opened for lunch only. Lunch was fine and service well although only a few guests were visiting this establishment at that time due to low season. The view on the white sanded beach and the islands on the reef were spectacular. Guests were invited to use deckchaires for free for the whole afternoon. Must see.

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

Awesome food, in a lovely location. The beach party was electrifying with great DJ music to keep the heart pumping

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
