Had grilled shrimp and lobsters (2 small ones, but oh, so sweet) and a platter of calamari. Simple clean and delicious. The grilled flavor of the shrimp and lobster was magnificent. You can get there for $4.00 by cab or tuk tuk.

The food is fresh and delicious at very reasonable price. The owner of place is really welcoming, friendly and helpful. The service is also good. Don't be discourage by its appearance! We ate here twice during our stay and would definitely re-visit this place if we come back to Diani.

Of course the resort food is good and hassle free but sometimes it is nice to get out there and try a real local place. And no, they will not have everything on the menu but that just shows that produce comes in fresh (and that they don’t have a freezer). So... we had grilled white snapper, prawns, calamari and lobster. Coconut rice and surprisingly tasty roast potatoes with some tomato coconut sauce. Real good ambiance (the place was full) and good service (please give people some time to cook from scratch!). The phone number you will find on google is the owner’s and it helps ordering in advance. Go try it! BTW, you will be tempted to go to the place that is next door and on the beach... believe me, food at Colobus Shade is better!
