Dear guest, many thanks for your comment on thalassa restaurant. We are working hard to give the best in food and services as you noted it.
Unfortunately 2 times in the year due to the season we have a lot of flies for few weeks in Mombasa, little we can do and it is only during day time.
We have a beautiful garden with all types of nice plants, flowers and ecological insect.
We are restricting spraying chemical to the minimum and only as per the rules of sanitation of kitchen requirement
Our menu range from 5$ to the most expensive option for a 3 meal courses at 50$ depending your chooses
It is your right to note us so badly against the flies but my team feel so down after reading your write up that i had to share with you their disappointment...
Kind regards
the management

“Outstanding seafood meal”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Fantastic views over the creek, extremely creative menu and unbelievably fresh produce. Their seafood platter is one of the best I have ever had and I travel seeking seafood platers. As successful as the plate of cold seafood starters. Highly recommended.

“Must visit”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

After checking Trip advisor we went to this resturant last night and we were not dissapointed. The restaurant is exceptional akin to a 5 star hotel, the food is French prepared and all of us had a great meal. I would suggest not having the steaks as, whilst cooked to perfection, the meat is somewhat gristly which can not be helped as this is the only meat they can get. Every other dish was perfection, the starters divine and main courses did not dissapoint, The deserts were heaven and we all left feeling really full and satisfied. I would recommend this and will visit again. The service was second to none, and we were all impressed with the attention we received. The cost of the meal including drinks was £27 each.
