the food and service are both sub-par. The indian is OK, but made me sick. There is live music at night and to go for a drink is nice, but i wouldn't recommend staying for dinner.

we came here on a recommendation for our last sunset in town (we'd spent the previous ones right on the beach). the service was great, the location was nice and the views of the sunset over the city were a nice change. Highly recommend this spot.

Only visited for cocktails at sunset but very lovely location. Good cocktails during happy hour. Most surreal being in such luxury in the middle of such poverty.

We stayed here at the Maru Maru Hotel for several nights. The hotel and food staff are excellent. Would have liked the food to be better but the ambience is fantastic on this roof-top restaurant. Either to dine or just having a drink, this is a "must" on Zanzibar.

Food was okay (seafood was best) but don't let them make you a margarita (they don't have the knack). They have varied entertainers performing each evening. Convenient, since I was staying at Maru Maru. Nice breakfast bar and omelettes.

great view, staff and dinner. Enjoyed prawns with couscous for dinner. Breakfast the next morning was just as delicious.

We enjoyed beverages and appetizers here one early evening. The service was outstanding! The best we had on Zanzibar and the food was good and reasonably priced (we were there during happy hour). Would definitely return again.

We ordered a seafood plate and precisely asked not to cook too long, more to have it rare than overcooked. Were very much disappointed to get everything overcooked and dry. Plus fish and seafood had a strange covering like if it would be cooked yesterday and just warmed up for us... Unfortunately staff were not helpful and made a grimace... More
