If you are in Watamu a visit to Papa Remos is a must. The beach setting is very beautiful and the food extremely good. This is a proper restaurant not a beach hut. The food is varied and well priced.

Our dinner was very good but unfortunately it was a very quiet night so a little lacking in atmosphere. Service was good and a lovely location.

Best beach in Watamu, clear water and clean sand, comfortable beds on the beach and with their own Masai security you dont have all the beach boys coming to sell you something. Good food and great authentic Pizza oven. Family-run place with good music and perfect to stay for the whole day!

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. Even though they were fully booked, they managed to find a place for us. The service was very good and the food tasty. A bit too italian though...

Had drinks and pizza here one afternoon after a long walk on the beach. They were fully booked but said if we were comfortable sitting at the bar they could serve us, so we stayed and had a lovely Italian thin base charcoal oven baked pizza. The dawa is especially good here, served in beautiful tumblers and lots of ice.

The location is unbeatable - right on the beach, with amazing views of the ocean, great breeze. They have a proper pizza oven, so the pizza is pretty good as are the cocktails. Service can be hit or miss -- the first time we went, it was quick but the second time the place was more crowded and it took... More

We knew this restaurant was highly rated and it did not disappoint. The view from the dining area is breath taking. And the food is just divine. Squid, snapper and baby marrow salad! Papa Remo salad with lobster and prawns was delightful. Pizzas were thin and crunchy but well served with plenty of toppings. And we also had great desert... More

si trova subito fuori watamu ma non sono sicura del comune in cui sia situato. E' comunque un ristorantino sulla spiaggia, isolato, molto ben curato, con servizio ombrelloni e lettini, non molto grande
