To be fair, you really shouldn't expect a restaurant in Kenya to nail an "Italian Classic." The more simple and local dishes are much better. Service is great and staff is very friendly. They view from the restaurant is stellar. And if you're staying at the hotel the convenience can't be beat!

Thank you for your positive comments. I feel with a Swiss/Italian excecutive Chef we can offer authentic Italian classics! His homemade Raviolis and Canneloni are to die for...........not to forget the outstanding Pizzas from the Wood oven! More

The food in the restaurant was (generally) of 5-star quality, but marred by occasional spectacular lapses and despite exceedingly friendly and helpful staff, a distinct lack of efficiency. The problem could easily be solved by making breakfast a full buffet experience rather than a-la-carte.

If you want to experience an all white sandy beach with a beautiful view its at the Nomad. As you enter the gate to the restaurant the path features a maze like experience which is well lit and builds anxiety on what to expect at the end. Very serene at night especially having dinner with family. The staff are very... More

This is one of our favourites in Diani. The menu has a wide range and the quality of the food is good. The service is also attentive without being too much.

The Sands at Nomad is arguably the nicest restaurant on the beach. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. The view is absolutely divine and you could easily spend a whole day, lounging by the water, eating ice cream or drinking beer. They accept international cards and are one of the few places on the beach that also accept foreign... More

Came for dinner with a group of friends. The service was good and the food was great. Its a lovely setting by one of the nicest beaches in South Coast. They are open for lunch or dinner, its wise to book a table as it is a popular restaurant.

Visited for Sunday lunch with the family while on vacation in Diani. It is located right on the beach, with good views of the beach/ocean from the restaraunt. The restaraunt decor is basic but comfortable. It was very busy and hence the service was slow; we had to look for a wait to attend to us. The menu has a... More

This is a truly excellent beach bar and restaurant. With a wide choice of food and a casual but chic atmosphere, Nomads continues to be one of the best places on the Kenyan coast.

Thank you for your review! I am terribly sorry, that you did not enjoy our food. The warm beer must have been a oversight from our bar staff- which should not happen! I hope you will give us another chance at another occasion! More

With wonderful staff to make your visit a special one. Try the catch of the day as it is cooked in front of your very eyes as you watch through the archway into the kitchen.
