I've visited this place often and it's consistently good serving great seafood and burgers. It's right on the beach so is great for kids and there are lots of water sports you can do there as well as camel rides. It has an amazing selection...of ice creams, so it's worth visiting just for an ice cream if you aren't hungry. A great spot and great atmosphere.More

Good service and nice meal been many times before and still one of the best in mombasa would probably try the fish first visit as it's in mombasa and fish here is very fresh

I finally visited this place. Everyone had raved about the burger from reviews I read from Facebook. So I tried it. It was not all that. The fries were a lot though I didn't even finish. Good portion. The ice cream was nice especially after...eight. I also had tirasimu and hazel nut but I loved only the after eight. Tastes just like the chocolate called after eight. Also from Facebook I read there is discrimination..probably coz of Covid foreigner's have gone down hence they are now embracing locals more. I was welcomed nicely shown where to sit and someone checked on me as soon as I sat down. Overall it was a nice place but not all that. Service is on point,food there is room for improvement...More

Nice along the beach restaurant that serves really nice food and nice staff serving you as always. Last eat there early 2020 before May as all UK people left in March when covid arrived. This place well run and prices a little bit heavy for...mombasa but worth the visit.More

Nothing much to complain about only that the turnaround time from when an order is placed to when delivered needs to be shortened, also do the stewards manning the jet-ski bookings have to stare at you while you dine? Otherwise great ambiance with just a...few tweaks required.More

We had dinner & enjoyed the cool breeze by the beachfront. The food was great & had large portions! Of course we had to sample the famous Yul's ice-cream! We had a great time! A must visit again!

I've been visiting Yuls since the early 2000's. And it's been amazing always. We visit whenever we can and the one thing that never gets old in Sunny amazing Mombasa is the Italian Gelati icecream that they serve. WE LOVE IT! Their staff are so...amazing. They seldom make any mistakes. Come to think of it, i've never experienced any mistakes from them. They have the right balance of entertainment to ambience with not too much music and just the right amount of oceanic sounds. It's perfect. The food here has always, ALWAYS been awesome. Will keep coming as long as you guys are around. Kudos to the whole team.More

Yuls probably has dome of the best food options in Mombasa. The portions are generous and the prices sort of reflect it. Let's just say its mid-range. It gets too busy on the weekends making it hard to navigate between tables at times. The staff...however is a downside for me, I once got into a verbal altercation with a guard who wouldn't let the kids go out to the beach till we were sat at a table yet the restaurant was packed. I told him my sister is waiting for a table and there was no place for me and 3 kids to stand around waiting. Knocking off a point for that. Hope it doesn't happen again.More
