We went to the restaurant for dinner - we had tuna carpaccio and avocado salad as starters and it was really delicious. As main course we took burgers - beef and chicken one - also very tasty with home made pastry. After dinner we went for drink to the upper floor and there was nice music, locals and tourists chatting... More

Bar food isn't always great, but Tatu is one of the best restaurant on the island. I used to go there often when I lived there.

Tatu's twist on the burger was a taste sensation that is well worth a try, the seasoning brings Zanzibar's spice heritage to your plate in spectacular fashion.

This place has three floors. First is a bar that is pretty noisy. Second floor is the restaurant. Food is average and a bit pricey for local restaurant. The best is the third floor where is the bar and disco after 10pm. Try to do it as you can mingle with the locals and is fun. Good for solos. Certainly... More

We visited Tatu for our pre-dinner drinks and we preferred going there compared to the other options next door that were pricier and seemed to attract people that went there to be seen in the cool place - a bit too European for our liking. Tatu felt more authentic compared with other cocktail places for a sundowner as it always... More

I bet the price here are cheaper compare to most restaurants and bars in the heart of stone town. Although it's not such a cozy place but at least you can rejoice with cool music and cocktails during late hours!
