My friends & I love Bella Vista. In fact, whenever I'm in town, we go for a fantastic nyama choma (Kenyan grilled meat) and many beers.
It's located in the centre of town close to the Tusks. We were a group of 11 and were quickly seated on the balcony overlooking a large screen which was showing the Africa Cup of Nations football. Inside there was a band playing live music and it was brilliant!
The waitresses were excellent and were always around to take an order. For such a large group we ordered 2 bottles of Jameson whisky (you can order by the bottle as it works out cheaper), mixers and several beers amongst other drinks.
The food was outstanding. We ordered several platters of grilled chicken, goat, pork and beef along with kachumbari (Kenyan tomato, onion & lime salad), ugali (savoury Kenyan maize cake) and chips. The food was fantastic. Grilled before our eyes, juicy, tender and served hot. The grilled goat was the best I have ever had. It was so succulent, juicy and tender. In fact it's the most tender goat I have ever had in my life. Superb. We also ordered samosas and beef sausages for starters from a lady who was walking around with a try of each. Delicious.
A gorgeous girl was walking around selling tequila shooters and we ordered 20!
The assistant manager was very good and very accomodating and the place was full.
If you're looking for a vibrant place serving excellent grilled Kenyan meats, Bella Vista is your best bet in Mombasa.
