“Best place to eat in Uroa Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

You can find the Kambakocho at the north point of Uroa Bay, within the Samaki Lodge Resort.
You can choose to sit inside or in the beach patio with a beautiful sea view; the place is very nice.

We had lunch here (trying to escape the food and service of the Uroa Beach Resort ... and looking at the other reviews we see we are not the only ones) and were pleasantly surprised. The pizzas are good, but I would recommend the excellent seafood pastas and the great grilled calamari.

We also came back a second time for the seafood dinner and had an excellent pasta with lobster followed by a great grilled seafood platter (octopus, calamari, prawns, lobster) .
We payed 24 USD (or 25 EUR cannot remember) each including a glass of wine.

The manager was kind enough to have us picked up from our resort and brought back when we finished; plus our two girls were offered a pizza dinner free of charge.

For sure a place to try if you are in the area, for dinner call the restaurant and see if they can arrange a free pickup.

“Nice surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Uroa Bay resort and the food was awful, so we decided to try another restaurant at the beach. The Kambakocho staff was very welcoming and friendly, and the Italian hostess was very kind and commercial as well. The food was really nice and fresh, and very tasty. The pastas are cooked perfectly (al dente) and the pizzas are nice and crispy. It was so nice that we decided to go back the next day! The fish and lobster pasta were also very good that time!

As we needed to walk quite some distance to get there, the hostess even proposed to have us picked up if we wanted, free of charge. In the end we didn't, but it was very comforting and nice from her side.

I would definitely recommend this place!
