The sea food here is great. The waiters are quick and very helpful. I loved the ambience too and would not mind a visit to exoerience a menu selection with a personal chef. With all that excellence, I think they should provide real glasses for...drinking water 😊. The starter we took was a trick so I would advise you delve in to the real meal. Overall...Excellent!More

I scheduled a dinner meeting with Mawimbi. They have a well organised team which responds quite fast compared to other places I've been. Cool music and serene environment

Not sure exactly what your question is, but if you're looking for somewhere nice to celebrate, it could be good. If you go for it try for a table near the pool, if a birthday let them know.
