The food here is good, by Tanzanian standards, though we had better elsewhere on Zanzibar. The dishes are, however, seriously over-priced compared to other places. Mains between 30-40 000 tzh, which would have been acceptable if the food was amazing, but it’s not. Selection isn’t great, a few starters and 2-3 mains on offer each night. No vegetarian options for... More

We walked 40 minutes to check out the lunch menu at Green and Blue Restaurant. Because I am vegetarian it limits my dining options. The lunch was a set 3 or 4 course menu with a fixed price and did not meet my dietary requirements and so we only stayed for a drink. A large water, a cocktail and a... More

We were quite pleased with the food that was served, I guess we r not very picky type of customers, but we really enjoyed our stay, the waiters were very funny always trying to entertain us.

In a five star property with five star prices, one could have expected a high-end food experience. Unfortunately, it was far from being the case. Set menus were wrongly chosen, with pretientious wongly-executed dishes which were not in adequation with the location: on the first evening, we were served an overcooked lobster even more spoilt by an atrocious soja sauce...

This restaurant was just in the most idyllic spot - overlooking the beach (a proper white beach with little development or crowds, striking contrast with tourist Mecca Nungwi up north) - that even if the food had been terrible I would still have given Green and Blue three stars. I was just so pleased that the food outstripped even the... More

Beautifully laid out restaurant in a stunning setting looking out on turquoise seas and over Mnemba Atoll. Refreshing gentle sea breeze just perfect. Very professional friendly staff and first class service. The food is absolutely delicious - menu changes daily, caters to all tastes and includes mouthwatering dishes that incorporate local influences (try the cassava!). No one got food envy... More

Breakfast - substantial breakfast with more pastries than you can shake a stick at, loads of fresh fruit, eggs any way you can imagine & proper coffee, Dinner - Daily changing menu featuring great seafood as well as vegetarian and carnivorous options. The tempura crab claw is one of the best things I've ever eaten!
