Quality is better than you would expect in this location.we were actually pretty happy. Prices are absolutely fair and staff is very supportive. A bit more grilled and less deep fried seafood would be great but overall certainly a place to come back to. Not anywhere near the beach but definitely worth going there. Their homemade ice cream is somehow... More

We have visited every place in diani in this week holiday and it was not an easy task to find good service/food/ variety/ place. This one was great. Nice wine, finish and fantastic ice cream. Not crowded and a very kind waitress attended us. Fast and cheerful!

Nice restaurant, with a good variety of Italian cuisine. Pizzas were great and my friend had the grilled red snapper which he enjoyed. Indoors restaurant but feels airy as there are no windows, giving it an outdoorsy feel Service is efficient and friendly Great location just on the Diani road

Went there for lunch with the wife and kids and was very impressed. From the warm reception at the entrance, the friendly service and the excellent food. The portions are also generous (no room left for their highly rated ice cream, unfortunately!! ☺☺) . The menu is wide and the prices fair. I highly recommend this restaurant whenever you happen...
