Reviewed 10 March 2014

The restaurant is located on the beach and serves fresh grilled fish/prawns.
The food was just excellent and you can even choose your fish before it is cooked.
I would recommand to go there for dinner in order to eat with the light of the candle...

Stunning!

Let me start off by saying we went to King Fisher for lunch, and thought it was mediocre based on reviews and hype. We then tried Shekira based on reviews from some expats visiting the area and the food literally knocked our socks off. This place is a little yellow shanty at the edge of the beach, about six restaurants past King Fisher on the right hand side. There's no number to make reservations and there are five plastic table and chairs in the front. It may not look like your typical sea side dining establishment but by golly is the food GOOD! We had the butter prawns with vegetables and the garlic prawn with salad. With the price, solitude, and relaxed vibe - this is THE PLACE to eat without breaking the bank and getting a lovely prawn fix while mingling with the local community.

Great seafood, friendly staff and a nice, quiet location right at the beach. The place might not look of much but it is definitely worth a visit!

The staff were okay. The food was good but could be better.
The nice side of shekira is that it is a little bit outside off the ''trouble'' and you pay there the local price for your food, so it is very cheap. It is directly at the beach. I would say it is okay and something different to the other restaurantes but it has not convinced me by 100%.

Absolute waterfront and icy cold beer...perfect after a long day at the beach. Well worth a visit. I'll be back time and time again.
