Hi,

Around Mombasa, at a local bar a water or soda will be around 50/- (Kenya Shillings) a beer between 130 and 200/- depending on the bar, (more likely to be between 250 and 350/- in a hotel or lodge). You can get a bar meal in a local bar for between 350 and 750/-, a pizza will cost between around 500 and 1,000/- depending on type and restaurant. A main course at a decent restaurant will cost in the region of 800 to 1,500/- (1,800/- upwards for good fresh seafood)

To add to what Doff said, try and get to a supermarket and stock up on bottled water, etc. Saves you a small fortune from buying it in hotels.
