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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed at Sarova Whitesands and used the Lido everyday. It has great views over the Indian Ocean, great food, a great selection of drinks and excellent entertainment from local musicians. The warm welcome, friendliness, and excellent service from the staff made our stay in...Kenya truly memorable. Special thanks to Jimi, Sylvia, and Julia who were fantastic.More

We celebrated our friend's 50th birthday at Lido. The atmosphere is beautiful with seating oceanside. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff made our celebration one we will never forget.

If you are a lover of seafood, you must pass by, the chefs are highly trained and very experienced in seafood dishes. The sushi is amazing, be warned that one dish is not enough, i'm not suggesting that the portions are small, it's just that...they are so delicious. The ambience is beyond words, sat looking out to the Indian Ocean feasting on seafood, all washed down with one of the many excellent wines that they have on offer. Try it, you will not be dissapointed.More

Service and food were acceptable. Sitting close to the ocean with candlelight makes for a romantic evening.

This restaurant had a really nice atmosphere and ambiance about it. We where the only ones in the restaurant but I think that was because of the time of year. It wasn’t the tourist season. I thought the food was nice but a little bit...over priced. The staff are extremely well mannered and always on hand if you need anythingMore

We ate here just once and never went back during our stay at Whitesands. Food was not good and well overpriced.

Amazing service, we got 3 free starters while waiting for the main courses. We were all very happy about the food, my friend got a lobster, I got some delicious asian noodles and a green oriental salad. It was chilly outside but the location is...wind safe.More

Food here was delicious. Careful about ordering a la carte items as they might not arrive, or not what you expect.

Do not let the simple outside deceive you! The menu include crab, lobster and platters, almost no fish. Seafood is almost as expensive as at the famous Tamarind! All prices are exclusive of all taxes (same story with all restaurants and bars at the hotel)....The food is good though but without the luxorious ambience of the Tamarind.More

This is one of our favorite places to eat, sit and relax! While staying at Whitesands, it was our lunch stop each day. The food was amazing! My husband always has the grilled lobster, which is the best he's ever had, and my son had...the three grilled giant shrimp. These were huge! I loved the cajun chicken sandwich and my other son loved the cheeseburgers. While eating, it is wonderful to sit there and enjoy the beautiful breeze that comes in with the tide. We love to watch the people and goings on that happen on the beach as well. We are back in the states now, where it is cold and snowy, and I can't help but think about that wonderful little seafood grill.More

We were in Mombasa for a concert recently and we spent the afternoon lazing by the pool. Normally, every trip to Mombasa involves a mandatory stop at Tamarind, but laziness got the best of us. We ordered 2 seafood platters from Lido and my jaw...dropped at the delicious array of delicacies. Prawns, crab, lobster, accompanied by the world's best garlic butter. A chilled bottle of wine (or dawa) and salty crispy fries is the only other necessity you need. Harrison is the friendliest waiter in the world, full of jokes and super efficient.More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Rock Oysters, King Fish, Swahili Prwan Curry, and Mixed seafood salad. The beer was not cold so we had to order a bucket of ice. The service was very good but expected as we were surprisingly enough the only table in...the restaurant. Major drawback was the surrounding noise due to the large screen television and neighboring karaoke night... Would recommend the restaurant to fish lovers!More
