Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hands down, the best seafood restaurant at the coast. They tick all the boxes for best food, best location, best service! Best kept secret at the coast ..

Poor customer service. Seemed to treat white people better than black folks. It’s just so unfortunate. Good views, good food but very poor customer service.

This is my favorite redtaurant in all of Kenya. Run by a kenyan hudband and his german wife, both kind, intelligent enjoyable people to be around. While that is nice, the food is still the star of the show. My personal favorite is marinated shrimp...in a giant, perfectly ripe, avocado. For my entree I typically get a mix of seafood in a cheasy creamy sauce serve in a shell dish. Everything Ive had here has been fantastic. For context I have been to the top 10 restaurants on here and feel this is the best of all of them.More

Delicious seafood and a great view plus friendly service, what more could you ask for? Our family of four including a teenager and one younger stopped for lunch after visiting Mombasa. Ginger crab, prawns, and fish and chips were all very tasty. Sitting out in...the breeze with a view of the ocean and Nyali was also lovely. Service was prompt and friendly and questions about the menu answered clearly. After lunch the owner came out to chat a bit and share some of the story of the restaurant. A great place for seafood, great service, I would definitely visit again!More

Sticks out as a fantastic view across the beach high up all along the coastline to nyali from shazu roughly. The owner if still the owner is a very friendly guy that makes you or certainly me at the time very welcome for a nice...lunch or evening meal. Funny guy as his humour I like and enjoyed our chats on all subjects from politics to kenyas past history . Very educational for me and sad also that this country was neglected years ago by many including UK. Most Kenyans now are so nice and genuine people sure they need jobs and wages for themselves and family so I'm sure like many businesses in Kenya these are really bad times for lack of tourists. Let's hope things return to Normality asp and another visit is possible to this nice beach top restaurant.More

My favourite seafood restaurant in Mombasa never fails to disappoint another fantastic lunch Had the oysters to start and these were quite big which was a bonus. Followed by the seafood platter with potato salad always good. Price was reasonable on a lovely sunny Mombasa...day. Cant wait to get backMore
