Description: 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

First of all, the host is bubbly, fresh breathe of air. We wanted a place to have quick lunch and this was referred to us by our cabbie. The welcome drink is iiiiit!!! The food portion at first glance is heartbreaking but when done feeding, totally worth the dough. The management should consider having a dedicated changing room for those who come not ready for the beach. Humble staff. We liked it!!!

Had a sundowner and dinner at Papa Remo with the family.
The hostess was very friendly and welcoming and even offered us the use of the sun loungers on the beach.
Sadly, the food was hugely lacking in quality and taste.

Papa Remo was a recommended for lunch by one of the animation team members at Barracuda Inn Resort where we were staying. Trust me , we were very impressed
- Nice and warm welcome by the lady owner
- right on the beach
- perfect italian pizzas and a nice serving of grilled fish ( Africans can relate to the serving part ;)
- to top it all Ms. Nadia the manageress gives you personal attention, recommending what to eat and where to sit for best views and comfort
Keep up the good work!

My friend and I had read the reviews of this restaurant and were very keen to check out the food and enjoy the ambience. We ordered the mixed grill and some cocktails. We thought this would be the perfect combination by the seaside. However when served the mixed grill we noticed that the prawn meat looked questionable, which resulted in us spitting out what prawns we had put in our mouth and put us off the rest of the food. We notified the staff straight away. What seemed like the manager came to talk to us who also agreed she had had some dodgy looking prawns before ( at her own restaurant) but decided to brush them off. After talking to the chef he tried to reassure us that this was normal of the prawns in the area. However being European we had never seen brown prawn meat before so we felt uncomfortable eating everything else. We asked for the bill and the staff charged us the full amount. We then asked for a reduction, and after some discussion amongst the staff they reduced the price by 1/3. At such a highly recommended (and expensive) restaurant I would expect more transparency. If someone complains about the food and does not eat it (especially with seafood) they should reduce the full amount.

If you want to enjoy some average cocktails and an Ibiza themed party, check out this restaurant. However, when it comes to enjoying some fresh seafood I would recommend searching elsewhere. We were fortunate to check the prawns before had but if we hadn't it would have really disrupted our holiday.
