It has been there for decades and it still feels like home to many of us who have been going there over the years. Friendly, good food and unpretentious. Still a haven in Malindi.

Excellent Sunday buffet with lovely views of the oceam and a welcoming swimming pool. A sense of community with a local flavour makes it a 'must visit' destination for me. Thank you for welcoming our group last Sunday.
