This place has an excellent menu, beautifullly cooked food, lovely wine, and at a fair price (the same as any other westernish restaurant in the area). The staff were courteous and friendly and the setting is beautiful , with a lantern lit pathway leading up the restaurant, which has a small number of rustic wooden tables lit up with candles....

We went as a group of four and were one of only two tables. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We started with the tuna carpaccio which was the best dish we ate while in Zanzibar. I had seafood pasta as my main which was very good, though the pasta on the menu was advertised as fresh and... More

We've been there for lunch and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend the fish carpaccio, the home made pasta with clams, the seafood risotto and the ice creams (passion fruit and pineapple). The service was very good, the wines properly chilled. The lady owner is very friendly. For us, the only missing thing is that they don't serve espresso,... More

I read all the great notes about this restaurant and since I love the Italian food we visited the restaurant for a small lunch. We ordered grilled chicken and pasta arrabiata, so nothing special. We were the only guests in the restaurant and we waited almost one and a half hour for such a basic lunch. The chicken was tasteful,... More

We cycled a long way down the beach to find Sal E Pepe, as we had read so many past reviews - which had all recommended it. We had the fish of the day, which was well prepared but in my opinion not the best value for money.

The view is amazing at night and the service was also very great. I had a pizza and it was better than most although more should have been done with the tomato sauce. The owner is very friendly and the free WiFi was a plus since almost everyone on the beach is charging for their WiFi. Overall, I would go... More

I have a house near by--so I may be biased,! When reviews refer to high prices they ignore the setting and the quality of the food--for me the setting in the evenings is fantastic and the food never less than really good--and still not expensive.. Try and pre-order--to get the fish you want and have the cooking done before you... More

Stopped there today. I had the tuna steak and my wife had some mixed sea food dish. Both were very nice. Had the ice cream for dessert which was the best I've had since I've been here, I had the chocolate and the pineapple. It could have been more solid though, but compared to some of the ice cream I...
