Nice ambiance, good service and the food was good. Also like the fact that it seems to a haunt for the local (Italian) Malindians. Stange name for an Italian restaurant though!

It is Sunday afternoon and we just went to Karen Blixen for a quick pizza. As quick as we got there as quickly we left. The restaurant is completely changed and still under renovation, atmosphere similar to a train station or event hall, ... next to our table some Fundis were cutting wood. Nevertheless we were hungry so we ordered Pizza. The waiter was shocked and ran to the bar then to another lady at another new build counter. Then he came back and told us they would not have Pizza as they dont have Mozarella. Really? Malindi being the little Italy of Kenya and Karen Blixen being one of the main, well known Restaurants I was really disappointed. The waiter completely confused didn't even offer anything else. I am not sure how many Italian supermarkets are actually available here in Malindi but I am sure that the management team of this restaurant should have thought of potential visitors on a Sunday afternoon if they already open whilst still constructing.

The food is good and fresh and the place is convenient for a date, as it has a romantic and uptown feel to it.It was also quite clean and service is good
