“German restaurant, German prices ... too expensive!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

This is a small hotel restaurant with slow and a bit lazy local staff, may be not properly motivated by German management.
It provides normal quality food but really overpriced!
Nice location on a stony beach side a bit far from Jambiani village center at the south end of the houses area.

“Amazing Dinner Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Red Monkey offers a 4 course Dinner Menu in the Evenings, and it is truely outstanding! The quality of the ingredients is top notch and come from local distributors. What the kitchen makes out of these are true creations and really well worth trying. Breakfast and Lunch are of course amazing as well, but Dinner is the one course most recommended :)

“Fast and Friendly Service and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

The food was quick and consistent and you got exactly what you ordered! Prices were very fair which meant we went back several times. Lovely little place with super friendly staff!

“Better than its reputation on Tripadvisor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

We stayed at the Red Monkey lodge and have had dinner at the restaurant.

Having read the previous reviews, I had quite low expectations.
It turned out however, that things were just fine:
Their service was fast and polite, everything was well organised, the staff was friendly...
So even if they have had their problems in the past (it certainly looks so) they have obviously learned from their mistakes, which is a very good thing!

The food itself was more than OK, although it didn't leave a lasting impression with us. Certainly not the spot for gourmet dining, but hey: where else do you get decent food, good service, a gorgeous location and 4 courses for 15 USD?!

...and breakfast with them was actually even better!


Therefore: fellow travellers, give it a try. You can't do much wrong there.

“Still Hungry!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2012

Food here was tasty but portion sizes were very small and all four of us were left hungry. Waiter was very efficient and friendly and location was very nice. The wait was very long considering the limited menu, although we were kept amused by the waiter chasing away the thieving monkey!
