“A unique cave restaurant with a sea food menu!!!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Went south coast for our 8th wedding anniversary and booked a dinner at Ali Barbours Cave Restaurant.

We did not have anything to regret about our dinner date. Very sumptuous delicacies with a five course meal. I particularly loved the Pan Grilled Barracuda Fish and the Banana / Mango Flambees. Nothing beats the candle lit - romantic ambiance under the blue sky shinning with the brightest of all stars! Just epic!

Would recommend for every couple who tours the Kenyan Coast - Diani to book a dinner table at this romantic restaurant.

Nice food and location. We went as a a group of 20 with ordering from the menu. They managed well. Approx. 50USD a person for an evening.

“Unique venue backed up by quality menu!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We were taken here by relatives as part of my birthday celebrations and had a magical evening. The venue is just unique and they could be forgiven if they capitalised on this aspect and did not produce top quality fare but the opposite is true and the wines, service and food all stand up alongside the cave to make this an absolute must. We wish we had visited before!

“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is a must if you're in the area, it's an unbelievable place and the atmosphere is great. The service was terrific, and the food was fantastic. We had the Seafood platter, and it must be one of the most delightful meals I've ever had in a restaurant. The kids had steaks, and they loved it.

“Will never forget”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Probably one of the most wonderful places where you can have great food and atmosphere. If you get the opportunity to visit the area then please make time try the cave - and have the crab claws (which are probably the best I have ever eaten).
