Tamarind Clifftop Terrace (Mombasa)
Whisky may be Tamarind's house specialty but its homegrown cocktails are unmissable.
Another oldie but goodie, the Tamarind tenders amazing views of the Old Town on the far side of Mombasa Creek, as well as some pretty good grub and libations.
Scottish single malt whisky is the house specialty, a stable that includes 10-year-old Talisker, 12-year-old Cragganmore and 12-year-old Glenkinchie.
Premium liquor also features in menu items like farm-reared Kenya quails sautéed in whisky and the Amarula crème brûlée.
The homegrown cocktails are also exquisite, especially the Mamba Venom, a lethal blend of tequila, Tabasco and sambuca.
Tamarind also offers daily lunch and sundowner cruises on a traditional wooden dhow sailing craft.
