A very cool Club/Restaurant overlooking a blue bay and a beautiful beach, the outside tables afford an incredible setting for a meal but can get a little windy! The pizzas are very good.

The experience was unpleasant. The view was quite stunning on entering and we had our expectations high. It was spoilt by the waiter taking long to take our order and appeared intent on serving non local guests. The pizza didn't taste quite good after that.

Pizza was very good, I am a seasoned traveller having traversed much of Africa and I have to say the food was of surprisingly high standards, real authentic Italians

This place has lovely beach parties! Lovely Italian food and cocktails as well. Sometimes you will need reservations as it’s a popular spot for dining on the beach (even weddings sometimes) so just give them a call before hand. They rent out the beach beds...More

Evening meal with family was pretty good, although lobster was overcooked and prawns hadn't been de-veined. The setting of the restaurant on the 7 island bay is the best part...stunning beach and pristine white sands.

First of all, the host is bubbly, fresh breathe of air. We wanted a place to have quick lunch and this was referred to us by our cabbie. The welcome drink is iiiiit!!! The food portion at first glance is heartbreaking but when done feeding,...More

Had a sundowner and dinner at Papa Remo with the family. The hostess was very friendly and welcoming and even offered us the use of the sun loungers on the beach. Sadly, the food was hugely lacking in quality and taste.

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
