One day we spent at this beach. Was good. Simply beach with small bar. Was good to see different place and stay at the beach. Service was good. Nice place to stay couple of days!

They have a really beautiful beach. The food is average... A nice place to go for an afternoon drink (unfortunate they close so early! 6:30 is too early) Maybe its during low season. Otherwise, very nice chill spot

We ate here twice in the couple of days we stayed in Malindi. I enjoyed both meals. For lunch, we tried their pizza which has a really nice, crisp thin crust -- just the way I like it. I also had a Fresh Tuna Salad...More

Nice view, great spot with terrible service. Very limited food options. Shame! !! We came here for dinner and drinks. We expected some fresh fish but unfortunately we got served with frozen. Overpriced. Avoid food and enjoy a cold beer admiring the ocean.

How this has so many good ratings is a myth to me. Came here for lunch. The fish was from frozen and the rice was microwaved old rice. Food was also overpriced compared to some of the other local offerings. The setting is nice however...More

We had a great lunch, then came back for a good dinner. Every dish we ordered was good. We had a very experienced waiter take care of us. The view during lunch was magical with white sands, blue waters, and many tourists lying about enjoying...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Good Morning. Hope you are well today. My friends and I are looking for a restaurant in Malindi to spend some hours in (it's a bit of a drive to get there and return) but we are under a very tight budget. Is it possible to go to your beautiful restaurant and spend some time enjoying coffees/teas etc. at a reasonable price? I am hoping to find a beautiful restaurant, ideally by the beach, where we don't have to spend more than what we spend in coffee shops here in Nyali for a coffee/tea (170/- - 200/-)? May we please spend that time at your facility for our meeting? Thank you!

I think you need to go to somewhere like Osteria

Nice restaurant according to reviews, I'm sure I will come to you in February. But I have common question, which applies to all restaurants in Malindi and coast. Is the Kenya alcoholic drinks act applicable for tourisit coast bars and restaurants? I mean restricted time for selling since 5pm to 11pm.
