We had a group of 14 people and didn't make reservations until the day before. Everyone was so helpful. They set up a beautiful table for us on the sand. The servers were friendly and did a nice job taking our orders, keeping them organized by group and delivering our food and drinks promptly. Thank you Nomad for a lovely... More

Thank you for your review and positive comments! Its good to hear, that you have enjoyed your meals and oiur services. For large groups we do recommend making a reservation though, so the table is already prepared and you dont have to wait! On busy days this might avoid also disappointments! Hope to see you again!

We sat on the waters edge, good view and nice breezes. The food is good, I had sushi both times we went and it was tasty. The restaurant is one of the more upscale restaurants in the area. Prices are still reasonable. Staff is attentive and if you are into scotch they have a pretty good selection. We liked it... More

We went here 3 days overall during our weeks holiday in Mombasa. The food and fresh fruit smoothies were amazing. More expensive than some of the other restaurants but worth it to be sitting on the most beautiful beach. Pizzas are made in proper pizza oven. You can pay for sun bed use for the day and they are up... More
