“Excellent all round!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My little son and I visited Savannah many times during our stay in Watamu for dinner. An absolute excellent restaurant with wonderful home cooked meals, really the BEST burgers in Watamu. Friendly and attentive service too from the staff. We also attended a few of their "party" nights, which were great fun. Jackie, the owner, was so kind to the two of us, giving us loads of information on what to do in Watamu, which we would not have known if it had not been for her. We really loved Savannah and would highly recommend this as an EXCELLENT restaurant to visit in Watamu. The setting is lovely too!

“A great escape from Hemingways.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Loved the atmosphere. Loved the food and loved the Tuk-Tuk return journey with Elijah!
I wish Tripadvisor also listed Pilipans - another lovely restaurant in the area.

“Pie nights, quiz nights, great food night!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Savannah is a little gem of a place, tucked away off the tarmac in amongst shambas and coconut trees, it really is worth a visit if you are in Watamu and you are hungry.
The food is excellent, there is a good mix of fresh seafood, steaks and vegetarian dishes and the staff are attentive and polite, which is something you don't find in many places on the coast.
Jackie and Mike make you feel welcome every time you see them and they are never too busy for a chat.
I love Savannahs and hope to go back time and time again!
