It may be expensive, especially considering it's in Kenya, but totally worth it. It is a very nice place, cave creates romantic atmosphere and it's perfect for the first/last day or any special occasions. Still, it's food that makes it special - both our dishes were perfect (crab and lobster), I was also very happy with my oysters. Shrimp with mango was also good and from what I've seen you should be safe with any other choices.

A long walk down, and a bit dark inside. However, a very unique experience, with great service and food. Definitely recommend a visit

This is a really nice restaurant, a great Wow when you enter. So beautiful! Staff is very friendly and professional. We also really enjoyed the food, especially the desert that was made at the table. At the end the owner visited all tables, which gave a personal touch.
Would recommend everybody who visits Diani to go there!

We went to the restaurant over the weekend. It was full, however the service was excellent, it's kind of gives you a fine dining feeling. The food was great, a really unique experience.
Tip: book a day in advance, we tried same day booking and it was fully booked. So I suggest if you don't find a booking just head there and have a tusker at the bar until a table clears.

Me and my wife was on a short trip to Diani and wanted to celebrate something and we chose to go to Ali Barbours Cave.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to this magnificent place.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal with the most exquisite service.

It is just beautiful and I can recommend it as a must see place.
