Regardless of the food, make sure you look at a menu for the price. Someone posted earlier that 2 people can eat for 10 dollars but that is not really the case. Prawns and Lobster are twice the price of anything else - although I think all dishes come with rice, potatoes and a sauce. So two of us ate for 40 USD total. They also charged us double the menu price for each soda. The view is nice, but I get the feeling they are just ripping tourists off so be careful!

Great local eatery situated at the fish landing station, mid way between Blue Marlin and Baobab.
Closes at 6pm but will stay open till 9 if there are guests. Plan a taxi home if it is dark since the beach either side is not developed.

Very simple, but also very tasty. We tried the prawns served with rice, chipati and salad which was great. The table of 6 next to us had a full platter of fish, crab and lobster that looked great. Two of you can also eat very well for less that $10!

We have visited Colobus Shade on our last two visits and hope to be there again next week. The location food and service are excellent. Best value meal in Diani and fish straight from the ocean you are sitting next to - what could be more perfect?

This is the perfect place if your are looking to try something different! It is set up the local Swahili fishermen so expect an abundance of fresh seafood options! It is low key, quiet and has million dollar views of the ocean! Support local communities by going to Colobus Shade!
