“great dinner on board the dhow”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is one place that is a must visit for dinner.One has to be there,through advance booking by 6.00pm.The dhow leaves at around 6.30pm and guests are entertained with a welcome drink.Guests are entertained to a live band and the dhow leaves the jetty and guests get a glimpse of Mombasa from the sea by night.Dinner is a la carte,usually a four course meal.Returned back to the jetty at around 10.45 pm.An excellent dinner.

“A memorable evening”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The four course meal on the dhow was really lovely, and although it is a great place for families, it is also very romantic and perfect for honeymooners, there is nothing better than sailing away into the sunset. While we were having dinner a couple next to us got engaged and the staff made it very special for them bringing over beautiful flowers, singing and clapping, all the diners got involved which was really exciting. The tomato soup and lobster was exceptionally good!! this is definitely something to do when in Mombasa, you are sure to have a great evening.

“A Romantic experience.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

This was a mst romantic experience for me, it was different and full of excitement. The meals were lovely, the staff very proffessional and the boat was beautifully laid out. The music was from a live band and they sang great songs. I od have had more fun, if there was a DJ to add one price to it a bit later into the dinner trip.

The toilets are clean and the scenary is mind blowing. I would have also had more fun if we sailed a bit further out of the harbour, to view more scenaries to spice up the night. It is a fantastic place to propose or renew marriage vows to one another.

I think this is a must experience for everyone.

Cheers

Mgbarasa.
