“great beach bar + restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

we had a great day at Rosada. we rented super comfy sunbeds, thick mattress and good shade. lunch was served right by our sunbeds on a low table. delicious seafood salad and quatro stagione pizza. of course all followed by a nice cappucino. the service was nice, staff could have been a bit faster but it was a busy day and they were doing their best. owner was around and seems to care and look after the place well. nice touch was fresh shower and a couple massage tables under a tree. lovely location and lovely food.

“Beautiful view, amazing pizza, excellent Bloody Mary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012 via mobile

This was one of the first places we went for lunch in Malindi. We wanted a nice place on the beach to lounge about, get a drink, and watch the ocean. It was the perfect fit. The waiter was prompt and took our order. We had the cuatro frommaggio pizza and the tomato mozzarella salad. The pizza was outstanding with tons of cheese and cooked with a crispy thin crust. Perfect! We enjoyed every minute and would definitely go back again. Thank you!

“Beach Party”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

Best beach party in Malindi, well organised. A bit expensive to get in though. Lights and sounds were excellent and crowd was mature and fun

“Paradise...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Incredible Italian food in a breathtaking location.
I asked my wife to marry me there, and everything was perfect: the food, the service, the music, the scenery...
There are several italian restaurants in Malindi, but this one is the only one directly on the beach.
If you are lucky to pass by on monday evenings the place hosts a legendary weekly beach party, where it's easy to spot VIPs.
For any special needs (I arranged a very special evening) ask Pippo, manager extraordinaire.
I'll be back as soon as I can, I'm simply in love with this place...
