My boyfriend and I visited Zanzibar one Saturday afternoon. Both the beach area and the bar/restaurant were swamped with people like it was college spring break in November! The lunch menu was limited, the food was mediocre and the service was poor. The servers were impatient and completely inattentive to their customers. Several customers, including my bf and I were...

Our bill had twice as many drinks than we ordered. When we asked to pay the waitress disappeared. Went to the till and 3 other... More

We booked the loungebed dinner a couple of days in advance and were advised to have it at 6.30 PM so we would see the sunset - good tip, could even have been there at 6 since the sun sets quickly around 6.45. But we did get great views of it. Nice reception when we came there and good explanation... More

Pizza's were cold, crust is thick wich is good but they weren't done yet. Anyway.. gave it a second chance because I was about to start... More

We had a very nice meal for dinner so we returned and tried for lunch, but were told "no pizza" served for lunch! Then we waited for a menu and drinks from the one waitress who seemed to ignore us, so we left after 20 minutes.
