Inside a original cave you will have the best of the dishes you can get in Diani, we have been satisfied, a bit overprized to us.

It's worth going to Ali Basrbour's for the setting. Absolutely beautiful. You enter the restaurant by going down a few stairs to take you to a lovely bar area. The restaurant is set inside the cave, with lots of nooks and crannies for a more intimate feel. We were lucky enough to be seated right under the cave opening in the roof..so could look up and see the stars (it doesnt feel at all claustrophobic due to this). The restaurant is beautifully lit with candles and soft lighting.
The service is outstanding and you're made to feel really special. The food was very good, but not excellent, and there was a good wine menu. Prices were good too.
Definitely worth a visit,..and the pick you up and drop you back to your hotel or villa too.

Nice setting, but this was our second visit and was not as good as previouys year, food very bland and too much of a mixture on one plate. Would not go again.
