“Fresh Food Served Daily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

My Wife and I enjoyed the meals served at Archipelago. It was fresh and the mix of spices in each meal was new and exciting. We came to the cafe for many lunch meals and a couple of dinners.

“Great restaurant over looking the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Had really delicious chicken, mango and cashew nut salad - I'm going to replicate this at home as it was so delicious and refreshing. Up some stairs with great views over the sea. Eat with Stoney - local ginger beer.

“Great Views, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Lovely cafe to sit and watch sunset, great open air vibe. The food won't exactly knock your socks off but its perfectly okay. The service is good and it is a lovely place to sit and watch the passers by, thankfully beyond the reach of the many annoying traders in your face on the streets trying to sell you stuff you don't want.

“Our favorite little spot in Stone Town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

After trying 6 different restaurants in Stone Town--from the fancy & expensive to the small cafe's and the waterfront fish market--we found ourselves going back to Archipelago many times. Simply put, they have tasty and affordable food with a great view! Everything we tried was fresh, delicious, and priced right. It also had a relaxing atmosphere and a great cup of cappuccino. Don't expect fancy decor. This is a simple cafe that excels in good food and good service. Give them a try! It's a perfect lunch spot.

Great place, fantastic location and great service. Did I mention that the food was great ? Their sticky date pudding is legendary.
