This restaurant is located on the most beautiful strip of the Diani Beach. The interior is a little bit shabby, only three tables, it's just a local beach restaurant. But you get here excellent seafood, large portions and the best scenery you can ever imagine....More

The food here was amazing and willie set up a private beach dinner for us complete with lobster, calamari, and octopus. He also made it extra special with candles and a bonfire. Eat here - you won’t regret it.

Eating at Willy's is an experience not to be missed in Diani! Since he may only get a few tables per day and can't keep all items at the ready, you are best to give him a call or drop by a couple of hours...More
