We were staying at Msafini Hotel and ate at their restaurant every night. And everytime, we were seduced by the food! The coconut crab and crab bisque are among the best meals we've ever had! The restaurant is nice, clean, with a wonderful view of Shela.

The only issue is with service: although the waiters are very nice, it can take up to one hour before being served! Also, the restaurant does not serve alcohol.

I understand the place has a new owner, and I don't know if non-guests can access the rooftop restaurant (there is another restaurant on the ground floor).

The restaurant offers good food though not 5 star. The service was top notched. They were very accommodating and patient with us. An amazing panoramic view. For the most part it was like having our own private dining room; we shared this area withone other group one meal.

The view was awesome, overlooking the sea. The service was good and the wine was a good price. A good place to meet people - very friendly. We didn't have dinner - only drinks!

My wife and I were the only ones to have supper on the rooftop the other night, and although the food took forever to be ready, we thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood's sights and sounds from our loftly perch.
