“not very good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

kitchen is poorly maintained, not very clean and messy, food sometimes can be lousy and sometimes not really fresh. however a nice and crowded disco bar is located just up the stairs to enjoy a drink in company and music.

“Shisha, wine & food on the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Had an amazing meal over quite a few hours - the pizza is superb, as is the seafood. The ambiance is really something special - the constant sound of the waves gently lapping on the beach in the background. The shisha was also good - a very pleasant surprise!

“Nice Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Visited on a Saturday night, we arrived early and it was a little empty, however around 11 pm it picked up with the crowd. Many Italians, and Indians were present along with the gorgeous people of Mombasa. The DJ must have had an off night because the music stopped three or four times (major party rock foul). The music mostly electro pop was good but needed some variety. Our party of three kept the party going and despite a few issues had a great time, would definitely try it again. I recommend anyone to visit and try it for themselves.
