We returned to the Nomad restaurant several times over the course of three weeks, because of the great variety and excellent quality of the food on the menu. We had calamari, spaghetti with seafood, tuna tartare, grilled octopus (amazing!), sushi, sashimi and much more over...the course of several dinners. Each time we were delighted with excellent dishes prepared to perfection by a great chef. Great atmosphere, as a couple we loved sitting nearer to the beach and enjoy the sea breeze during our romantic dinners. And despite being a 5-star location, the prices are really excellent too. We'll be back again!More

Very nice place. Quite a good food. Fish, octopus, samosas with feta, carpaccio high recommend. Good pizzas. Nice music. 4 stars only for service: not allow to separate the bill (if big company), we came 4 persons, and then met 2 more friends and personal...didn’t allow to change the table for next bigger free. We ordered a lot of food and hadn’t place to put it on the table.More

Your trip to Diani is incomplete if you don’t visit Nomads. The best ice cream on that side of the world. Amazing veg sushi and pizzas. The beach is kept very clean and the sitting area next to the beach is really relaxing. Amazing staff,...Bakari is always smiling and pleasant. Not a place to be missed!!!More

We’re there a couple of times. Place is always crowded, we were wondering if this is the only place for dinner or lunch or drinks right at the beach...anyway we were always served with attention, food is ok although not really spectacular. In any case...if you want to have dinner at the beach a must go in DianiMore

Awesome place, we kept coming back every day on our holiday! Lunch, dinner, ice cream, drinks - everything works. Clean bathrooms (hard to find here), parking, live music and they guard your stuff when you go swimming

You will often see this place photographed. The restaurant is beautiful, swhaili/minimalist themed. The food was fantastic!! And the views unmatched. WE loved it!!

Service ranged from average to very good, depending on which waiter attended you at the time. We had at least 4 different waiters during our dinner. Our starters were not brought at the same time, and the T-bone steaks - already cooked to the desired...level - were brought on hot slabs which meant that they continued cooking, so we had to take our steaks off the slabs and put them on our side plates until normal plates were brought so they would stop cooking. My wife was literally unable to eat her steak, it was so tough, and I managed to eat mine but with very little enjoyment. The supervisor did offer an alternative after this but by this time our evening was ruined and we just wanted to leave. At least we weren’t charged for the uneaten steak, but despite that I have no desire to go to this restaurant again.More

We booked for dinner and had a booth at the lower platform right on the beach. The setting was really good and the vibe is great. The restaurant is quite large and seem generally busy. We ordered sushi platter and the waiter was not able...to explain what we will get, we took the chance and it was OK but some items we don't enjoy. My children took Pizza and pasta and this was reasonably good. Apart from sushi-knowledge the waiter was good and quick. For dinner I rate the food and experience as average, I think a late lunch would give a better experience considering the perfect white sands of Diani.More
