Sea food paradise this little gem is. Couldn't get enough of the platter. And the smoked sail fish got the whole table of 12 scrambling for a piece😃😃. Truly a fantastic restaurant with great sea food and excellent service. Well done and keep it up.

Monsoons restaurant stand on an empty pristine beach with views out to sea or back towards the beauty of the Jumba ruins and botanical park themselves. The restaurant offers a delightful range of fresh seafood as well as Italian pasta dishes. It is a place where you want to spend the day with friends, drinking in the views with a glass of wine and a dressed crab or two. An incredible haven only seconds from the chaos of the beaches closer to Mombasa,a wonderful place for families,couples and special occasions Monsoons is to be savored, not rushed.
