First the place: your almost on the beach, it's wonderful for breakfast at sunrise and dinner at Sunset. Then the staff: Felix, discreet, fast and aware. Saddam: always smiling. Last but not least: the food, fresh & nicely cooked. Just compliments here.

Short, simple menu with common Swahili dishes, pizza, seafood, pasta. A few veggie items such a samosas, salad or bean-veggie wrap. Paid a reasonable corkage fee to drink our own champagne. Very good view of white sand beaches only a few meters away. Friendly but...More

Just a regular restaurant. They serve the dishes very fast but maybe it was because there were just two other tables with guests. In comparison with other restaurants in Paje, is this one of the more expensives one but it isn't a very luxury one....More

This bar & restaurant is part of the guesthouse but accessible for everyone. The food and drinks are good at reasonable prices. You can get a main course (diner) for around 10 USD.
