There are a lot of beachfront restaurants along Diani Beach attached to various resorts and hotels, and many of them provide reasonable fare. However the food and service at Sails was a cut above everywhere else I visited and very reasonably priced. Decent sized portions, tasty (complementary) appetizers and a bit of finesse with the food make this a must... More

The food was very tasty. I'm not a seafood eater and of course staying onthe coast for vacation it's hard to find good alternatives. It was myself, 2 close single girlfriends and my husband. My husband is the only one from Kenya, so he was our personl tour guide and translator! Lol

This is the best place ever. We all really love everything about this. Just on the beautiful white beach. The food is top class. Not too many people the value is excellent. We have spent many an afternoon here after long lunch.

My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary in Diani Beach and decided to have dinner at Sails one evening. The food was absolutely divine. Nothing was lacking and everything was immaculately prepared. Definitely something to experience when in Diani. The only thing that would have made the restaurant better is if they opened slightly earlier for dinner - in... More

Having lunch looking out at the amazing Diani beach watching fishing boats go by on the crystal blue waters is a treasure. The food is exquisite and the cocktails go down a treat in the shade.

Everything is great! The staff know their stuff, the chef comes out to great you, to confirm everything was lovely. We found the place very reasonably priced. Wine was fantastic. The beach was smooth and wide. Try everything in the starters menu, if you have space try the wasabi.

This restaurant is located on a beautiful beach, you can take your costume to jump in the ocean for swim before or after your meal. We were a big group of friends so we ordered a lot of their menu, their starters included fresh oysters to smoked sail fish, their mains had baked crab, ginger crab, sea food platter and... More
