“Absolutely delicious food in a cozy outdoor setting”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The restaurant is set beneath a large thatched roof with local artwork occupying the walls. It's a very welcoming place and the food was extremely good. Between the six of us we had six different seafood dishes and we all loved our choices. We also split a margerita pizza for an appetizer and it was a taste to envy. They have a wood fired pizza oven, which was a real treat. The food though was a little pricey so this place is not for everyday fare.

“Beautiful outdoor restaurant with eclectic art all around and a great DJ”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Located a bit remotely in Malindi, this Italian owned restaurant specializes in seafood dishes and will not disappoint those looking for high end gastronomy on the coast. Some beautiful modern artwork decorates the atmosphere. Can be a bit pricy - and not well suited for children.

“Great service”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Great service, nice food. Lovely atmosphere. We had to make a booking - but it was New Years Eve - they had a guy singing and playing the guitar - a few mozzies about so wear your insect repellant.

“Mostly good food, But appallingly bad service, worse than before -> ruined the meal”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

My parents ate here last year and remember the service being lacklustre. Tonight when we went, my dad and brother, having arrived ahead, gave our reservation and the *Head* Waiter didn't believe them and made his disbelief obvious before he went to check. Once seated, it became apparent that the juinior? waiters don't know much about the menu (although Carol was nice), but this *Head* waiter came to take our order and had such pleasant things to say like 'order what you know' and 'people my skin tone don't eat asparagus' ! (we're also black/African) and was completely unhelpful and visibly exasperated with our questions on the menu and then stalked off without a word when we were done. He also had no qualms rebuking the junior waiters in full view of his clientelle.
The fish fillet in lemon sauce is good, as is the grilled squid, but the pork chops are a fail. The chips are also ill advised, but the grilled vegetables are good.
That said, go at your own risk because the food will taste like acid if this "Head"waiter in particular decides to say/do something inappropriate. This was it for my family and I, at least until I see consistently better reviews about the service.

“Nice atmosphere, slow service”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

Food was good, wine was excellent, but the service at the end of the meal was frustrating. It took 30min to get the bill even though there were several staff standing around attentive to other tables.
