Pillypan is always full of locals, always a good sign. The service was better than in previous years, the food good and the setting with its twinkling lights and long Arab lanterns stunning. Well worth a visit

What a great night we have just had. Fab location, beautiful decor, great company, excellent food and did I mention the best cocktails in Kenya??

Creekside location and a real wow factor to the decor. Very caring and attentive staff - head an shoulders above anywhere else in the Watamu area

A favorite spot frequently visited. The food,atmosphere and service is hard to beat plus it is one of the only venues that you can get a great Sundowners. My favorite place on the Coast.

First things first - this restaurant is in Watamu not Malindi as other reviews state!! It is simply the best restaurant in the town. Atmospheric, great location, good food, friendly staff. It is definitely a visit if you are staying locally. Best advice is get a Tuk-Tuk there and back to your hotel - adds to the fun!!

Recommended by a local, this place is by far my favourite in the country now! Beautiful location, superb food (we've worked through most of the menu now), fab cocktails (great value) and lovely waiters. Amazing!
Its in Watamu not Malindi as TA says.
