“Good pizza”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The Giardino is located very close to many of the beach side hotels a little ride outside Mombasa. Run by Italians (chef and manager) it promises a good meal outside the traditional Kenya buffets.
The setting is quite nice, with a semi-open air restaurant. Service is way above normal Kenya levels and the personal touch of the Italian manager makes it very good.
The also make the biggest Dawa's in town.
The pizza is good Italian style and tastes as it should. Same goes for the anit pasti that was very good. The home made pastas was not quite there - too bland and not very tasty.
Rounding it off with some Italian icecream made the day. Overall good but can benefit from some improvements on the pasta side.

“Fantastic food and lovely service”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The first time I tried to review this wonderful place it was nowhere to be seen. Now it is first and it deserves it. The first time we went was 31st December 2012 and the food and atmosphere that night was wonderful. So good we went back on the 3rd January 2013. The food is just fantastic and the cocktails as well, but what makes this special is the service and the entertainment. I would highly recommend anyone to go they will not be disappointed
