Bar Bar has a nice open design that makes it appealing to sit and have a coffee inside of, but the real attraction is the diavolla* pizza

Very shabby place with very average food. We had pizza which is Roman style and was edible. We asked for grilled shrimps, but weren't available. Affogato had to be sent back. Overall pretty disappointing with poor service.

The food is ok but you have to wait for more then 1 hour to be served even if the place is empity. Bad attitute if the owner. There are much nicer place to have dinner in Malindi where food is good and the service quick.

The lady who served us was of little assistance and got quickly annoyed by our enquiries. Thankfully, a different waiter intervened and proved to be more... More

Had the sailfish pizza, decent size and taste, but a bit pricey. Someone else had the margarita with bolognese, a bit soggy.
