Great eat out with fresh sea food and a terrific ambience . No better feeling than floating on water, while enjoying great service especially from the waiters. Romantic lights at night and substantial food servings.

The food is filling and good portion. well presented and tasty. Our waiter was on point and could explain to us very well the various food items on offer. the manager seemed a bit up tight though!

Fantastic view of the mtwapa creek. Worth going back. Its also amazing the community project they have at the entrance where they use recycled bins to plant vegetables! Well done!

went here for dinner at night so did not fully appreciate the floating aspect but the vibe was chill and the food and drinks were really good! we went for karoke night which was low key karoke and not too loud so we could still chat. good parking too! view might be better in the day time.

We had a really good evening here. The wsiters are very friendly, the atmosphere is very calm and stressless comparing to the city of mtwapa and the viwe is priceless. The restaursnt has its own rexaled charm and doesnt pretend to be something. The food was very good (we had seafood pizza and fish skewers with vegetables from the "moorings-spacial" menu, which is recommendable cause the prices are ok and the portion was good). All together a great evening! Only the karaoke music was a bit loud so we had to talk loud to understand each other. I thi k on saturdays it makes sense to order in advance to avoid getting there and no table is free.
