As we were staying in the hotel we ate here for most meals. Every meal was different as the chefs changed daily, so you didn't get bored even ordering the same dish as it changed each time! It was always tasty and well presented.

wonderful bar serving lovely food and amazing cocktails. what makes this place stand out is the staff- so friendly and relaxed. organised an amazing reef trip through the owner - just two of us on a local fishing boat, out to the reef to catch octopi and swim in the tropical waters.....not another tourist in site!....perfect!

We went to this restaurant a couple of times & the food was amazing both the times. The service is slow (but i think that is very common in zanzibar - even if you're the only person at the restaurant).

We stayed at the neighboring place Domokucku. The food here was fresh, tasty and sumptuous. We had the restaurant to ourselves, the staff were friendly and helpful. Do try the mango and ginger juice made fresh in front of you. 1 of the most delicious fresh juices I have had. A must visit if you are staying in Paje. Oh... More

We ate here twice whilst staying at a nearby hotel. The restaurant was simple and open to the incredible beach, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. Seafood was really tasty and swahili style wraps. Service was laid back and friendly. Not as cheaper as some other places in Zanzibar but worth it for the well presented food... More

prior to our arrival I read the reviews about this restaurant. This is truly an amazing restaurant. the food is fresh and tasty from the menu and special dishes from the Chefs. The juices are from fresh fruit, like all places on the island, but has a little extra ingredient or two to push it to that that level of... More

Best piñacolada on Zanzibar (and not only there)! A very nice barman. - talkative, but discreet. Very nice massage, too.

We enjoyed a very nice evening at this restaurant with a huge and delicious meal (very fresh fish). The staff was nice and the atmosphere relaxing with nice music, candles (when the lights turn off for some time in the evening) and the sound of the waves only meters away. We also had a nice chat with the hotel/restaurant owner... More

The menu is a guide. Feel free to ask for anything that might be concocted from the available ingredients, for example, instead of the crusted fish, get crusted chicken. Ask for more veggies. The cook is talented, so the outcome will be delicious.
