Reviewed September 27, 2012

Yet again another jewel in Mombasa's crown. The location is stunning, overlooking Momsasa Creek. Food is great and service even greater.

“Great Night Out”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

You will not fail to be impressed with this Dow trip, the food is outstanding and the trip along the river is quite romantic and will certainly impress the ladies, however take a cardi as it can get chilly in the breeze when out in the middle of the estuary.

“Hi quality fish and cooks”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

I could say it's definitely one of the best fish restaurants of the east Africa. Perfect location, outside the town, reachable with 5$ of taxi. Better to book a few hours before or even a few days if you're a big group. My best choice is the fish platter, and if your partner is not that professional eater, you can share it with her/him and just take an appetizer. Mind the VAT, it's not included and prices are not that friendly as the waiters are. Advisable by night, the view is unforgettable (well, you still are in Mombasa, not in Venice..). Buon appetito!
