The tin shacks with impressive names ("beach hotel", "Serena hotel") at the banks of Lake Victoria close to downtown Victoria may not look much. But you can definitely get some great tialpia there, usually with a vegetable sauce of kale and tomatoes added with ugali. The fish is very fresh (what else) and you just have to ignore the way the kitchen looks. The food tastes really nice and you can enjoy it in an authentic Kenyan atmosphere, families coming here for their Sunday lunch and peddlars offering pirated cds and all kind of plastic kitsch
