I can only say this was the most disgusting food I have had in many months. Given we were at the coast can't believe the prawns came out of a freezer bag. Prawn cocktail one soggy revolting mess. Slow service, two hours after we got there we were offered our starter. Not exactly as though the place was that busy either so no excuses. Given there was a choice of only two dishes per course it was appalling, how could it be that slow and then taste so bad? Jugs of waters took ages to appear and then served with plastic glasses. We couldn't even face dessert it was that bad. This was a thoroughly miserable experience and I would say stay well clear of the place.

Had a very good early dinner with my husband - food was good (fish cooked very well although vegetables were over-cooked) and owner was very courteous as Visa machine was not working, we had no cash.... The owner just told us to go back and pay the next day! Very much appreciated :) - if you are vegetarian the choices are quite limited (surprisingly enough for a restaurant at the Coast mainly meat dishes on menu) - but definitely a popular spot. Prices are very VERY good.

If you like excellent food in the most relaxing venue this is a must. Mike and Jackie and just the best. Try the steak burger with the blue cheese sauce, magnificent.

Very clean and tidy with very friendly hosts who greeted us well.
Was a limited menu due to lack of customers in the resort but something for everybody.
Good portions and nice and hot with good service.
If we had any issue it was just on the pricier side on cost but we all have to make a living!
Liked the place but a little tucked out the way from through roads but well worth a visit.
Big rugby place to watch sport.

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!
