Great seafood, albeit not cheap. But on the Kenyan Coast this is standard. However, the service was outstanding, the waiters very friendly and jovial. The fish was fresh and the grill awesome. Wine fine, beer cold, so what else do you need

Good service. Great food. Need I say more? Well, yes. The location is right on the beach with ambiance and decor to match. Be sure to make a reservation as it is very popular.

This restaurant is very like a high-end London restaurant, except it's on a beach and it doesn't cost as much. It's by far the best place we ate in Diani. The food is much better than Ali Baba's cave and similarly priced if not lower....More
