Beautiful view of the ocean, delicious food, lovely staff pity they had to close early, but I would definitely go there again and recommend anyone else planning a trip to Watamu.

Visited papa Reno at Easter Monday and service was apparently still recovering from Easter service. Had to wait for 20 min and nobody came..so went out to look for a waiter. Got a table but received our welcome drinks only after insisting. After placing the order food came very late with the announcement that only one of the two ordered... More

Lovely fresh seafood and great pizza. The setting is divine! The service as slow, but the food was worth the wait. Definitely worth another visit!

With good food--great homemade pasta-- and friendly service. Portions a tad small for people who've been swimming all day.

Visited with my wife in our first evening in Watamu. We really didn't know where to go and decided to chance it. We met an extremely welcoming owner and great staff. The meals were just amazing. I had a pasta and my wife had a steak. Reasonable portions and reasonable prices. We went in the evening and from what we... More

I was very surprised that this was no.1 restaurant in Watamu. Beautiful setting, but very poor food choice and quality, and poor service. It might be worth to go to Malindi, as there are fantastic restaurants there.

This restaurant is located on what must be one of the most beautiful beaches in Kenya. The food and service were above average. Definitely worth a visit!

Super seafood dining! Made of Christmas and New Year evenings exceptional. Set on the beach --dining with sand between your toes and a succulent lobster in you mouth!

We stumbled upon this wonderful gem on our search for somewhere to relax and have a late breakfast which ended up being an early lunch. The entrance does not prepare one for the gorgeous view ahead! It truly was breath taking. We were set up in the shady sitting area overlooking the ocean. Words do not do the perfect picturesque... More

si trova subito fuori watamu ma non sono sicura del comune in cui sia situato. E' comunque un ristorantino sulla spiaggia, isolato, molto ben curato, con servizio ombrelloni e lettini, non molto grande
