Recommended by various persons, our expectations were unfortuantely not met. While a 20-person table next to us received attention by three waiters, ours was not to be seen most of the time. Ordering was therefore a challenge. Starter arrived without the drinks present. Main (catch of the day [cod, very dry]) was served on a mixed salad only - no... More

This level of relaxation in combination with great food and service can only be found at Nomads! Stunning spot at the beach with private dining corners which you never want to leave again! Best Pizza in Kenya! Amazing attentive staff! Awesome management! I love you guys!

Dinner on the edge of the beach to the sound of the sea. Lovely setting with a gentle breeze to cool the warm evening air. Good service, very enjoyable meal, good cocktails. Rated one of the best restaurants in Diani and justifiably so.

We were in Diani Beach for Easter and had the pleasure to visit Nomade, which was recommended from by the owner of Makuti House, whom also made the reservation for us. The location was perfect by the beach, with a fantastic view over Diani Beach. The menu card was big, but we were recommended their pizzas in the larger version.... More

Stopped in after a dive at the Nomad dive shop (dive the crab). Had a spicy prawn curry that was perfect. Was very crowded but staff was on top of things. Not too much more expensive than other places on the beach, but better food.

This place is very special and I highly recommend! The biggest draw to this wonderful place is the view; it looks out over Diani Beach with his clear blue waters and soft white sand. A beautiful spot to enjoy a cold refreshing Tusker or a bite to eat. Food The menu offers a variety from pizzas, seafood, burgers and sushi... More

Nomad is always keep the standard of good food and service! But little bit confusing with the bill now! Because they add tax and service charge on top of your bill!

Having travelled to over 120 countries, you run out of adjectives to add to accolades, but Nomad is another where your pen hesitates. Bang on the best beach south of Mombasa, the palm trees throw dappled shadows on the talcum sands and better still, the Nomad Restaurant, entirely delightful in its unpretentiousness, boasts the best food on the south coast,...

Over the years remained high standard and good food Varied menu from local food. Italian and Chinese. It's a lovely setting and specials each day and good curries Sunday for family.
