Stopped by here to listen to the live Congolese band. The band was really good, but the bar/restaurant could use cleaning up and renovation. At some point during my last visit, I could see water flowing across the floor as though from a burst pipe. Fontanella has a great location but I think the only thing going for it right... More

Please let me know, if you know a place where you can get a better steak for only 400 KSh. Don't belive the menu, they write a steak is served with a sidedish of your choice, but the sidedish has to be paid. Finaly 550 KSh for steak with masala chips is a great value. I will be back tomorow.

The food was very average not to say more, lot of people having beers, the place is right in Mombasa town center, may be a stopover for quick refreshment?

Having had amazing food in the Old Town for lunch, we thought we'd try a local place on Moi Avenue - tripadvisor listed Fontanellas, so we gave it a go. I can't believe it's the same place, but the only good thing about it was the lovely helpful lady serving. The rest was dreadful. The food was revolting - sorry,... More
