Once you enter you notice this is not a top-end-place. So prices are ok for budget-travellers or for a quick lunch. Chicken-curry at around 350/= (3.50€) is very ok. I've not been there at night, but during daytime it's a nice place to hang around. Watch the ocean or the life on the small street in front and enjoy your Tusker.

In the heart of the old town in the fishing district of Baobab in Malindi, this restaurant and cafe offers simple well cooked food, with a great view of the ocean, from breakfast through to dinner. Has a smoking and non smoking area. Staff are friendly but efficient. Favourite dishes are masala chai and fresh chapati for breakfast; or spicy sambusas and Tusker in the mid afternoon. Prices in UK equivalent are low - lunch for 2 less than £5. Frequented by locals for business and friends and family get togethers, ex pats for a beer and catch up, and a few tourists, this makes for a brilliant place for easy going food and people watching. Frequent hapana asante sanas take care of the quietly well behaved sellers that drift through. Take the local paper and chill out.

The food at The Baobab is basic, very reasonable and good. The staff are friendly and I go there very time I visit Malindi.
