Tamarind Mombasa

In the early 70s there were no quality restaurants in Mombasa, Kenyan born Chris Seex who was managing a resort Hotel at the time was determined to correct this. His dream was to create Africa's finest seafood restaurant. With a little financial and moral support, he designed the Mombasa Tamarind - built with high arches and a crenellated roof, the elegant white building is a throwback to a bygone Arab era with the perfect setting - a starlit terrace perched atop a cliff overlooking the picturesque Mombasa's old harbour.

The menu is a creative blend of the best of French, Asian and African cuisines. The specialty is seafood and only the finest ingredients are used. The prawns piri piri, chili crab and lobster have earned the restaurant worldwide acclaim and rave reviews from international publications such as Gourmet, The London Times, and The Herald Tribune. Personalised service, original presentation and meticulous attention to detail has cemented Tamarind's reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Africa, fulfilling the founder's dream in spectacular fashion. The restaurant has a seating capacity of 160 pax
