We visited this restaurant a few times during our stay in Watamu and enjoyed the casual atmosphere and excellent cuisine of lobsters, clams, pizza and pasta.

Good food (even Italians go there for pizza!), very friendly service. The crab samosa as a starter was excellent. And so was the pizza.

Avoid this place as eating here is very likely to result in a severely upset stomach. The fried budgie was a disgrace at rip off prices. My pizza was inedible and was abandoned after the first slice. My friend is still on antibiotics after eating...More

Lunched there. Simple kenyan dish well prepared even though not sure it is done onsite. Reasonable price

Fresh food, awesome service, very good prices. This is one of the simplest most understated places to eat in Watamu, but we loved it so much the first time that we returned for almost every one of the meals of our stay!

Dinner with friends here, Despite a relatively large number of guests turning up at once, they managed to cope fine and food came out together and it was reasonably priced.

Nice friendly small place. While waiting for food we got tasty "bites", bit salty. Gnocchi and caltzona were fresh and tasty. Good capuchino. Second time had "take away" - excellent pizzas.

3 pizzas were ok, but needed a bit more flavor as toppings were sparse, so put out some toppings to make it tastier from the fridge once we got home & then they were perfect.

The meal was great and they actually changed the ingredients for the pizza to our liking. Pizza is made in a rustic oven and you can actually see it being made! Super cool. It is genuine Italian pizza. Customer service was exemplary, it is affordable....More

The restaurant is located on the Watamu Beach Road, the main street of Watamu, looks like a typical African restaurant, with dishes, Italian and African, fresh cooked at the time (using pre-cooked pasta), we also have a bell 'assortment of pizzas to suit all tastes (leveled by hand and baked in wood as tradition).
