My friends and I spent the day at Lymingtons beach bar and bistro. It said that the sun beds were only for guest use but we asked and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They said we could use the beds and only had to move if it got very busy and guests did not have a bed. This... More

Had dinner here with a group of friends. Despite having reserved, we had to wait for a while before being served. Good thing though is the owner was courteous to inform us that they had a busy dinner service and there would be a delay. The food was okay, and we enjoyed ourselves.

Visited twice while here. Food is nice, if certainly catering to the ex-pat/tourist. Still very good for that. Service was somewhat poor. The waitress forgot a beer order for some 15 minutes, then when reminded, allowed herself to be drawn to another table on her way back with the beer! Wasting another 5 minutes. But, with the location, good food... More

We spent almost 2 weeks in Kenya Ways, so we have plenty of chances to eat there. The food is ok, but nothing special. For ever order you have to wait between 30-45min which is not ok, because the dishes are typical for bistro, not for restaurant.
