Very nice setting and definitely worth a visit. The food was pretty god with many different choices on the menu. Their wine list is huge - for some strange reason only two Zin's. We had the coconut roll which was very tasty. Their sole was a bit dry but their selection of steaks was awesome!! We had the selection of... More

At Sansibar you get the best food in Germany. Unbelievably delicious with a nice variety of food in a very nice setting overviewing the beach.

A Mecca foe Sylt visitors. The most comprehensive wines and spirits list I have seen in my world travels. Food is fine. Unfortunately it has achieved cult status and therefore "over-popular", therefore crowded by "pilgrims". Chose a quieter time and enjoy something special.

If you visit Sylt this restaurant is a definite MUST GO! The atmosphere is great: you can see the North Sea, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding. We come here every time we visit Sylt. The crowd in the summer months is a bit overwhelming and it is hard to make a reservation for the evening, but... More

Located in the dunes of Rantum, this place feels cozy and relaxed. I have been here many times and the quality has gone downhill. Last time I ordered a Rib Eye steak that was far from good. This place has been a meeting spot for German TV personalities. This is why it is a bit snobby but that's part of... More

I had a great experience in Sansibar even it was mid-August, sunny day, the place was crowded inside and outside, but we could manage to get a nice table and a very nice lunch. I had an amazing salad with Serrano ham, figs, melon and honey vinagrette. Simply perfect. The food of my partner was also great. I found the... More

This place was absolutely perfect...! The food was as good as I was told. And also the wine list. The people who work there are really nice and always so gentle.

and I am the small boy calling him naked. Sylt is the most hyped German north sea island and Sansibar THE place to go. This thing is a text book case for successful marketing of a product without a lot of substance. We went there for lunch last week and after some waiting got a nice table. The restaurant is... More
