Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant

Restaurant Information

Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant is set in a natural coral cave with a series of interlinked chambers. The main part of the restaurant has an open roof top and on a clear night you can enjoy the beauty of South Coast’s starry night!!! Talk about dining under the stars and yet experience the luxury of fine dining. The setting is unique, mysterious and romantic, all at the same time.

The restaurant specializes in Sea Food with options ranging from fresh oysters to scrumptious crustaceans and fresh catches of the day. However, it also serves an impressive meat menu covering Poultry, Venison and Beef dishes and not to leave out their delicious vegetarian menu.

The ambiance is absolutely amazing! Simply beautiful. Always a good time at Ali Barbour's Cave Restaurant.

Well, despite the fact the restaurant was empty, we were refused to be served as we came with our kids. Apparently the company policy is kids unfriendly, so avoid completely unless you have no children. Very disappointing.

I fell in love with this place. The only thing is that they are a little bit pricey.

The ambiance is absolutely amazing! Who can say they've eaten in an amazingly lit coral cave? The service had room for improvement, as most Kenyan restaurants. The food was a bit overpriced for the taste and portions, but still way above average. Definitely worth the visit!

We had a really nice time. The restaurant is really world-class and could be easily put in New York or London. The manager was especially nice and accommodating. Nothing but good things to say!

This was a seriously disappointing experience; we had such high expectations and were enormously excited to be eating in a cave restaurant. The kids were almost beside themselves with excitement. Indeed it was a lovely setting. However I have never been to a restaurant with such stingy portions; frankly they ought to be ashamed of themselves. We were a party of 10 people. 6 of whom were children, and we all left hungry. The pasta dish served as a main course, to my daughter was literally three forkfuls, I received 8 queen (small) prawns for a main dish which included 6 stringy 1 inch bits of French beans, 3 slices of carrots, 2 small chunks of turnip, no salad or accompaniment for the not inexpensive price of 2400ksh, approximately, $30 dollars give or take! We ordered the steaks as main course for two children which arrived on one plate that we were presumably supposed to place between the two of them seated at opposite ends of the table: 3 mouthfuls each and these pathetic excuses for steals were gone. The others has children had asked for extra chips in lieu of veg; they remembered to twke the veg out but conveniently forgot about the extra fries! We had to go home and make toast for the kids. All in all it\'s fitting that the restaurant is called Ali Barbour and the forty thieves because thieves they certainly are,!
