Nice enough setting, awful food. Did not cater for vegetarian apart from omlette. Curry tasted like some kind of jar goulash and was very sweet.

I visited this place quite often during my 3 week stay in 2012-13 as it offers an excellent combination of simple local dishes and very reasonable prices. Thoroughly recommended!

I can honestly say we had the most delicious local food (ugali,greens,beef ragout) of our lives! Loos weren't very clean and there wasn't even background music playing not to mention there were about five other people there but my oh my was that food finger licking good!!!!

Food at typical kenya prices but fresh and cooked very well, beers are cold but limited wine selection. Must try the Samosa, best in Kenya

We love going to the Sundowner every time we visit Diani and we can not fault the beef curry, chips and the cold Tusker beers, see you next time we visit on our holiday. We have also had the barbeque which is great and we enjoyed the entertainment.

If you are in Diani, it is definitely a place I would recommend. There is barely anyone there, but the food is great! And cheap.

definitely not for tourists this one. Dirty, poor hygiene, cats, dogs, flies and fleas. The "menu" ...... well if you can call it that..... they don't have half the stuff available. Toilets are disgusting. A reasonable price for the back packer or locals but as a Westerner I wouldn't advise it. I had a cheese toasted sandwich and side salad.... More

We visited this great local restaurant and had the BBQ dinner. It was very good. We watched a super cultural dance/drumming performance to end our evening at this great place

Great value food. Walking distance from our accommodation on Diani Beach. Loved the atmosphere and we enjoyed a weekend bbq night with African dancers for entertainment - just great

Not much to say but it is cheap and good for people on a low budget, does not seem to have a closing time either as we found out.
