“One of the better restaurants in Malindi”
Reviewed March 9, 2011

We were fortunate enough to be staying at Mwembe for two weeks so had Lorenzo's on our door step. The night we arrived we ate there through pure convenience but liked it so much that we ate there a further 5 evenings during our stay. Im not a huge fan of Italian restaurants ( having been spoiled by my Auntie Louisas cooking at a young age ) but the choice on the menu catered for every taste and was well prepared and presented. ( the pasta may have been a bit aldente for my tastes but then Im a Mzungu from Northern Europe so what do I know !) The service was also very good with very friendly and helpful staff. Little touches , like complimentary pate and rosemary / garlic bread whilst deciding on the menu made the dining experience so much more enjoyable. The setting within Mwembe resort is just perfect and the open airiness of the restaurant adds to the enjoyment. In all good food , good wine, good service and good prices.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed January 4, 2010

Lorenzo's is a separate business located on the Mwembe Resort. The food was consistently good, the grilled lobster awesome. Great service. Limited to Italian and a few other foods. Some separate tables off of the restaurant seating area where you can pull curtains and have some privacy. Worth at least one meal if you are in Malandi.
I would not drive my own car as the "resort" does not let you on the premises to park near the restaurant, expect to pay US prices for alcohol.
