Poor service. Terrible food. This place has now closed down. Thank goodness. It's situated in the heart of Diani and perfect location but unfortunately did not run well.

Yibba Yabba is no longer operating. They have been closed for five to six months. Hopefully this review helps travellers to look for another place to visit.

This place has an amazing atmosphere and it located right on the beach. Under candle light is it very romantic. The food is simple but price-quality good. We definitively come back !
