Similar to the Colobus Shade nearby, Mwaepe also offers a genuine African experience. Fresh fish and seafood to enjoy while sitting literally above the beach, listening to the waves at night, we loved it.

Nowadays there are no tables on the beach unfortunately. The food is nice but not exceptional as I remembered from my last visit here. It came much quicker though. I would still recommend it and come back for grilled seafood hopefully with some veggies more...than rice and potatoes next time!More

A very relaxed place by the beach, nicely placed for the sea breezes and well tucked away. The sea food platter for 2 persons is amazing value for a lot of good seafood. Only criticism would be that it was a little dry, and could...have done with some melted butte, or aioli - something like thta. If you go in the evening, book! Other wise they close up early....More

Had octopus and coconut rice here the past Sunday. The waiter was quite helpful with finding the choice and the seafood here is so fresh. My friend really had good Tilapia and Potato wedges

Very local and nice fisherman community restaurant, run by a family. With great location right in the beach, very modest aspect but super nice, with great attention from the staff. I went with my wife and had 1 and a half seafood platter, great quality...and taste, all grilled and fresh catch of the day. We went recommended by Sahid from Diani Marine. Bakari, the Chef, came with a tuk tuk to pick us up from the hotel and dropped us later in the hotel. His brother attended us nicely. In conclusion very local and pure Fisherman restaurant, I recommend it.More

Very cool local restaurant. Just in fron of the beach. Wonderful an soooo tasty sea food. We took the mix of seafood and it was extremely delicious. It seems they have some special recepy as the taste was so outstanding. The interior is very nice...Swahili marine way. Very nice to see fullmoon comming out of the sea. Prices are very economy ok. Food freshly prepared. And very friendly staff. We’ll go here againMore

First of all the place has an amazing setting facing the beach, despite little issues like "Coconut Rice" with no Coconut flavor or whatsoever. Octopus curry tasted more like a mild tomato sauce and no curry at all.. for this kind of place, food is...expected to be nicerMore
