So, if you sit outside, there is a very busy road and the air is filled with fumes from cars, buses, tuk tuks etc, of course it is very noisy. Beer was cold and pizza good, but service terrible. When we pay, they try to...More

We (a party of 7) went in for lunch, having driven from Watamu on recommendations of a local magazine. My wife asked for a washroom, and some "manager" called a waiter to show her where it was. I asked for a beer, to be told...More

The starter I had was the local signature dish "Smoked Sailfish" on a bit of green salad. A very simple dish, but delicious. For mains I choose pizza, since this place's name suggests they do a great pizza. Yet, from previous reviews it seems that...More

This is a family friendly and very reasonably priced restaurant. The food is very good and portions are big! The staff is helpful and seems to care. Location is a bit noisy with all the tuktuks driving past...but that is all of Malindi anyway!

Great place with atmosphere and really charming service. Consistent quality food. Not just good for pizza, which has become Malindi's staple food, but even more so for seafood. All at relatively pocket friendly prices. Great for lunch and dinner.
