The explosion occurred at the popular beachside eatery known as Xeebta Cagaha Geli (Put your feet at the beach).
The injured were rushed to nearby Kismayu General Hospital.
Security personnel have opened investigations into the explosion.
Kismayu town, 500 km south of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, has experienced explosions over the years that have led to several deaths and injuries.
Authorities have often blamed the attacks on Al-Shabaab, the jihadist group closely associated with Al-Qaeda.
