My partner and I were looking forward to a traditional Kenyan dinner, though regrettably we never got as far as ordering anything. The drinks selection is extremely limited, no wines or spirits, bottled beer is practically all on offer and a few soft drinks. I would not recommend this place for a romantic dinner and on reflection we should have... More

This is a brilliant little gem, especially if you are looking for local food and atmosphere! Try the samosas and beef curry, washed town by a cold Tusker. Would take this over any resort bar any day of the week!

This is a bit of a local place, not the cleanest but to be honest for the price you pay the food is very good value. Half chicken and chips is lovely.

Nice enough setting, awful food. Did not cater for vegetarian apart from omlette. Curry tasted like some kind of jar goulash and was very sweet.

I visited this place quite often during my 3 week stay in 2012-13 as it offers an excellent combination of simple local dishes and very reasonable prices. Thoroughly recommended!

Food at typical kenya prices but fresh and cooked very well, beers are cold but limited wine selection. Must try the Samosa, best in Kenya

We love going to the Sundowner every time we visit Diani and we can not fault the beef curry, chips and the cold Tusker beers, see you next time we visit on our holiday. We have also had the barbeque which is great and we enjoyed the entertainment.

If you are in Diani, it is definitely a place I would recommend. There is barely anyone there, but the food is great! And cheap.
