“Excellent Food...Refreshing View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

I like my steak rare. But it had been rare to find a restaurant that could satisfy me...until I visited Thalassa. Kudos to the chef.
After dinner we moved to the bar overlooking the creak...AWESOME! Very friendly barman and the view...well, we loved it.

“Picturesque open-air restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

This place felt like such a discovery the first time I went -- it's got a very hip and peaceful vibe situated on the Tudor Creek, and the lengthy Lebanese section of the menu makes for a unique set of options in the Mombasa area. For better or worse, like many restaurants in Mombasa, the menu is an eclectic array of several cuisines: Lebanese, Italian (pizza, pasta), seafood. This typical leaves me skeptical that any of it will be very good but they're able to pull it off.

Last night was the first time we ventured into Thalassa and I must say it was a great choice. It was
Quite, the service from Benson our waiter was a delight, the restaurant being open & airy which combined with the ambience of the river makes for a magical evening. Now the meals were well presented ,delicious and to top it off the prices were very reasonable.

“A meal fit for kings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

While visiting Mombasa a local suggested we try out this place so we stopped over for dinner later in the day.
The ambiance as one enters the restaurant is magnificent and the staff are very smart and welcoming. The service was very good and the food was just perfect. Highly recommended to everyone and the prices are not expensive. Very glad I found Thalassa restaurant.
