Conveniently located close to our hotel; Dhow Palace. Good seafood. The white wine was not chilled when we first got it, but that was quickly fixed by the waitress.

This place is divided into three floors with bar on 1st floor, restaurant on 2nd and dancefloor on the roof top. We went here two nights for drinks while visiting Stonetown and had a good time on both occations - drinks are probably better than food by the looks of it

We tried the pub and believe this is one of the good options for drinks in Stone Town. The prices are reasonable and the beer is actually cold: a luxury in Tanzania. You can sit the balcony, see the sun set, watch football, check emails or play billiard.

I really like the idea of the three levels named, moja, mbili, tatu. The dancefloor on the third floor was really nice, however it got really packed towards the end of the night and we left to look for something else. Loved the vybe!

Tatu has a rustic and charming atmosphere, quite in contrast to its more trendy neighbour. Not a very long menu, but the thai curry chicken tasted excellent when it finally arrived. Reasonably priced also, makes it a good choice.

Lovely local staff and some great food. I'm always made to feel really welcome when I drop by and the staff seem to make a point of getting to know people, especially those of us that are here for the long haul!

During my visit in September 2013 to this amazing island I've come across Tatu restaurant where I've ordered freshly squeezed granadilla juice. THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD. I was so impressed and decided to come back a few days later. When I arrived an ordered a drink the friendly waiter advised me that they don't have. I was so sad... More
