“Great spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I visited this restaurant on my second trip to Zanzibar. It was recommended by a friend in Moshi for having great seafood. My friend was correct, the seafood was excellent and very fresh! Served with vegetables and rice it was a great portion. We finished with the sticky date pudding - it was to die for! Decor is relaxed and very inviting - great for families!

“Nice steamed fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Ranpal already said it all - I just wanted to add the photo. Food was quite good - the steamed fish was a great choice (on the board not in the menu - catch of the day). French fries were ok not great - red curry vegies nice.

“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

food and service were fine, price was on a par with other restaurants catering to tourists, the steamed fish wash nice, the chips weren't that great, coconut red curry was a little bland for me but possibly ok for most people.

“Great food and great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Excellent sea food, good portions and well priced. The restaurant also has a reasonable view of the ocean, partially blocked by the trees.

“Well looked after”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The restaurant is on the second floor with an outdoor deck area. It was recommended to us be our host in Matemwe. There are loads of staff that all seem to pitch in and help. One seats us, one takes the order, one brings the silverware, a differant person brings the drinks etc. The food came to the table fast and was super hot when it arrived. The meal was very good and quite reasonablely priced. Main dishes are 10,000 to 16,000 Tsh. Would have gone back but there are so many places in Stonetown to try.
