“Very ideal spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

Its a no-frills beach bar and restaurant and the location makes it an ideal place to chill out with friends or family over drinks or meals watching the ocean and enjoying the cool breeze.Best for sun-downers.

“Not impressed, sorry, not for that price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Not impressed, sorry, not for that price, the layout was nice, but one is there to eat, not sit. My prawns were not worth the price, nor were they all fresh...

“Crap Service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Bartenders take forever and are very rude. It seemed like they had their heads chops off. The place is on a beach but nothing really special. Place needs some maintenance but otherwise its just okay!

“slow service, pricey, but what a location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Spent forever waiting to order drinks, but apparently it had never been that busy. Pricey drinks, but this is a tourist hotspot and Kenya can't be called a budget country anymore (much more expensive than f.ex. South Africa or Tanzania). Wonderful to watch the sunrise at the beach if you stay up very long chatting, otherwise you can dance on the beach, or in your shorts and sandals inside. Lean back in the couches and enjoy. Great vibe

“Group trip and all loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

A great restaurant that catered for a special birthday whilst we were there. Great atmosphere, great food at reasonable prices and the location is fantastic. You can hear all the crabs scuttle along the seafront at night... Whilst the moonlight gives you glints of them.
A must visit if your around the area.
