We visited the restaurant guided by its top rating but were disappointed by the food and drink. Only a small fraction of the wine bottles on the menu were available. The waitress tried to sell us a bottle that was not on the menu but we realized at the last minute that it is triple the price of most of the wine on the menu. I caution everyone to avoid such a scam. We ordered a sea food platter and it was the worst that I have ever ordered in a sea food restaurant. Most of what was served seemed microwaved. The oysters were inedible and so un fresh. We left wondering why such a bad restaurant would be rated top on Tripadvisor.

Morris! Morris! Morris! Best service hands down! Amazing seafood! We enjoyed our experience there and we are definitely coming back again and again! I loved it!

For a first timer in all things seafood we were given the best guidance all through on how to go about everything. I am so happy about today and I would highly recommend Mawimbi Seafood.

Steve serves a mean cocktail! It sluurped!

The person who made the Lava Chocolate cake did a splendid job!

10/10!
