Generally great food

We ate here several times while staying at the guesthouse. All our lunches and dinners were tasty and well-priced. The only let-down was the seafood platter, everything else was great.

Food is great, gourmet quality. Presentation is lovely. Price is on the expensive side compared to the rest of the island, more expensive than hotels in Zanzibar town. Portion is small, if you're really hungry take all the different courses of the meal and you will be more than full. It might be me though, I had just gotten off... More

This place has it all, although not every day. There is a fixed menu of 2-3 starters, 5-6 mains and 2 deserts for dinner (and some less choices for lunch). The variety is really big and unusually creative. You get pasta, salads, sushi (!), italian, indian, swaheli, bbq, fries, burger, however mostly with an unexpected touch to it. There is... More

Daily changing menu consisting of the fresh island delights of Zanzibar, very friendly staff and a wonderful and warm atmosphere in the restaurant. The owner did a great job furnishing and decorating this place!

We spend our last 2 days on Zanizibar at Bellevue guesthouse. After a warm welcome we had a great dinner! The rooms are the best! We slept in 3 different hotels during our stay on Zanzibar.. But Bellevue was far out the best!!

This was the most expensive restaurant we found on Bwejuu. It was tucked back a bit from the beach in a very attractive setting. The menu looked a bit different so we gave it a go. We had the coconut crusted fried calamari which was thoroughly bland and the "Asian" beef stir fry which had almost no flavor besides salt.... More

If you're in the area you should definitely eat here! The food is a mix of local and international cuisine, consisting of plenty of fresh meat, fish and local vegetables and fruits. Because management is Dutch, they know very well what people like, real fresh ground coffee, no ketchup with your potatoes and fries but mayonnaise, a daily changing menu... More

We found the restaurant just by walking on the beach. We saw the sign and decided to have a drink. The rest of the holiday we have had lunch and dinner here every day! What a good restaurant! When you step in from the beach the cosy and atmosphere and beautiful African decorations are the first things you see. But... More
