We stopped off here while biking along the beach. Good that we did! We relaxed in the hammocks while the food was being prepared with our chocolate and banana milkshakes. The food was incredible, cooked in delicious spices. I had the fried calamari with fries while my boyfriend had the king prawns. We both agreed was one of the best... More

Fantastic little restauarant: Arguably the nicest food I had in Zanzibar. They cook everything from scratch. Superb food with lovely hosts/ service. They change the menu daily but if you can get calamari masala, get it: divine!

Best place to hang out overlooking beach and mellow. The food was delicious -- octopus, shrimp fried with cumin and lime, squid, fresh fish -- great Tanzanian food. If you're looking for pizza and burgers this is not the place.

Actually we wanted to go eat at the Rock, but when we saw Upendo, decided to eat there. They have nice relaxing areas and a great view on the Rock!

Enjoyed Zanzibar meatballs here - delicious, spicy - a nice change from seafood. When the evening power cut happened - we were left with just candlelight - and the sound of the sea. Very atmospheric!

Beautiful fresh food, great presentation including flowers. Wonderful use of spices and fresh seafood. A real treat. And a quiet restaurant in the off-season.

We found this little place on a walk up the beach in search of a nice quiet place to eat. We loved it immediately - the small restaurant was just what we were looking - quiet retreat off the beach, good music and great food. Karen made us welcome with ease and we ended up having one of the nicest... More
