This restaurant offers a great and fairly priced dining experience at the seaside. Dining in the evenings there as we enjoyed the breeze from the ocean was a magical experience, i guess its far much better to eat there in the evening than during daytime. the waiters were friendly but noticed since its al a carte-mealscooked to order kind of service you might have to wait up to 30 minutes for the main course on a busy evening. on all occasions i ate sea fish,'tafi' and 'tangu' with ugali(maize meal) for only Ksh 350. I thought was good deal for a mid range restaurant in the heart of a coastal tourist town like Malindi and that gives the bonus of enjoying great scenery.

I didnt find the fish in coconut particularly inspiring but it was ok food. Juices really great as they usually are in the coast. Frankly we preferred to eat in other local eateries and drop in for the tea and cake offer for like 100 Ksh and catch the sea breeze...

A plus is that they take visa and they serve beer and wine...

I was there and the flats were very good for relaxation after a hot day in the Town and beach. Very good for a weekend get-away and vacation with a low budget

Once you enter you notice this is not a top-end-place. So prices are ok for budget-travellers or for a quick lunch. Chicken-curry at around 350/= (3.50€) is very ok. I've not been there at night, but during daytime it's a nice place to hang around. Watch the ocean or the life on the small street in front and enjoy your Tusker.

In the heart of the old town in the fishing district of Baobab in Malindi, this restaurant and cafe offers simple well cooked food, with a great view of the ocean, from breakfast through to dinner. Has a smoking and non smoking area. Staff are friendly but efficient. Favourite dishes are masala chai and fresh chapati for breakfast; or spicy sambusas and Tusker in the mid afternoon. Prices in UK equivalent are low - lunch for 2 less than £5. Frequented by locals for business and friends and family get togethers, ex pats for a beer and catch up, and a few tourists, this makes for a brilliant place for easy going food and people watching. Frequent hapana asante sanas take care of the quietly well behaved sellers that drift through. Take the local paper and chill out.
