The owner is Swiss and cook himself. Very nice Swiss food. Very lively in the evenings, especially when a band is playing. Tuesday and Friday. The place has a good mix of tourists and local people.

The restaurant is good frequented by locals and foreigners. We hadgodron bleu and piccata milanese. It was very very good and i liked the cool athmosphere. We will come again to eat fondue chinase a discretion for only 1200 ksh. But you have to reserve a day in advance. In the evening there was a live band and people dancing

Loved eating her. Owned by a chef, the menu is a mix of local fresh fish meals, Kenyan dishes, German and Thai food. Any choice is a good choice. Live-music by small local band Tuesday and Friday evening, great atmosphere, not a rowdy disco but just a great place to finish your day. Meals available all day, Thursday 20% discount... More

Thanks to Rudi and all his staff at a truly welcoming venue. Live music nights especially are a great night out. Special thanks to my friends of many years Ruth and Felix.

My family had dinner there twice during our time in Shanzu, Mombasa. It's got a nice atmosphere and reasonable prices for a what they are. I had the pepper steak and fried potatoes. My wife had the curry chicken. Both meals were good. No complaints. Also had the calamari rings on 2 occasions, really enjoyed those.
