A friend of puts who lives in Mombasa recommended this restaurant as the best in Mombasa. We walked along the beach from the Severin which was a short trip en then had lunch with one of the best views ever. The oysters and seafood cocktail weer very nice and the owners and waiter were great. We had a very nice conversation with the Kenyan owner who offered us something for our honeymoon. The fish and calamari were also good.

I've been coming to Sea Heaven for over 15 years and without a doubt the food has always been fantastic- from the perfect texture to the taste, excellent freshness of the seafood to the fantastic personal touch from the beautiful owners who put their love and warmth to the food! Once again Mr Roy and his lovely Mrs did not disappoint!!! Highly recommended!!!!!!!

This is truly a hidden gem. It is a bit difficult to find and I do not think I would have come here on my own. We were a group of family/friends that were invited for dinner here and this was an ideal place for us. We sat outside with a view to the ocean. Nice wind from sea and very peaceful. There were only another small group there so we got the attention of staff as well as the owners of the place. We had pre-booked our meals so we did not have to wait long for he meals to get served. All of us had sea food so I have no idea how the meat dishes would be. But as this is "Sea Haven" I would go for sea food. As the place is hidden it is clearly recommended to book in advance. Not only to get a table but to enable the restaurant to have enough fresh food.

I was recommended this place by one of my friends and im glad he did, though a bit far it truly is worth going too...
My anniversary spent here was just magical as the environment is very elegant, on the sea side and definately romantic. The owners are very welcoming and make you feel at home!
I must say if you love sea food, this is the place to be, from the prawns cocktails to the lobster thermidore to the grilled fish with garlic butter...just too good and worth every penny.
If you want to have a relaxed and quality time with your loved ones...I recommend sea haven!

Contrary to the previous review we had an excellent experience at Sea Haven. Yes, the restaurant was quiet although we were not alone with another three groups of Russian and African origin dining. The restaurant owner was friendly and interested in our travels and chattted with us for a while.He mentioned that the restaurant has been going for 35yrs and this comforted us some what as we're always a bit iffy about eating seafood abroad! We did not see the German woman as referred to previously...

The views of the ocean are amazing and well worth a visit. Be sure to get a table on the patio. When we arrived these were not set up but a waiter kindly arranged this for us. We visited twice, the first time to have a well needed drink, an ice cold Tusker! and then a second time for lunch.

Highly recommend the Mombasa prawns. Good size portion, my partner and I shared and this was more than enough. Be careful with the tide, best entrance is from the beach. The entrance at the back takes you through a fairly built up resort type area (still under construction). It's a shame that the previous couple had such a bad experience but I hope that this won't put any future travelers off as we had a great time!!!
