My best recommendation. A very pleasant surprise when we one day chose to try something different than the hotel's restaurants. Got the most tasty and delicious pizza I had for a long time. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

La Fontana is the place to eat in Kendwa, it’s chilled garden atmosphere, makes you feel at ease, and the food unrivalled, spaghetti ragu was incredible. The owners Saleh and Mani, were always very hospitable friendly and fun, and the staff all attentive.
