Recommended by some French friends, we visited this restaurant. We ordered a beef burger and jumbo prawns with vegetables (~15US). Both dishes were very good. Jumbo prawns were even excellent. Our French friends visited there more. They ordered fish of the day and king prawns. All were mentioned to be excellent too. Prices are great. You cannot get such quality... More

We ventured down to this restaurant 3 of the 5 nights we were in Zanzibar as the food at our hotel was a bit pricey for us. It serves a range of food but its all along the lines of bar-type food. Good portions, tasty but simple. Prices are about 12,000TSh for a main meal but they do sides and... More

We were staying close by, and the Seles was where we would go for afternoon drinks and for playing cards. It's right on a stunning beach, and the food was good ( although slow to arrive ). The staff was very friendly, and all in all the place had a very very chill vibe. Prices seemed a touch high, but... More

From the outside it doesn't look like anything, but the inside is wonderful. A huge selection of cocktails and nice pizzas

We ate here twice and we could not fault it. Really nice tranquil setup and lots of cocktails to chose from. Best place to eat in Matemwe for a reasonable price.

We absolutely loved staying here. The room was reasonably large with air con and hot water in the en suite. The staff are extremely friendly and polite and the owners go out of their way to help. We were diving next door at the one ocean centre which was extremely convenient. The food is also delicious and there is a... More

It is not a place you go for haute cuisine of course. But it is perfect to get some coolness when the sun is so strong on the beach. You can choose the fruits for your juice. The price are the best around and you don't wait as much as at some other joints. The crew as they call the... More
