Description: Z Hotel’s main restaurant, Saruche, offers a four course Table de Hote Menu of African-European fusion cuisine as well as a variety of fresh-from-the-ocean fish and seafood. We have created a sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere where you can sample some of the finest cuisine Zanzibar has to offer and taste fine wines from our international wine selection.Other than sampling our delicious four course Table de Hote Menu, we do also offer themed buffet evenings on select nights. Ranging from the Seafood Fiesta to Traditional African style meals, all accompanied by live entertainment. With stunning views across the ocean, Saruche restaurant rests on the edge of a small cliff where you can eat al fresco on a deck over the ocean with only the rippling tide to keep you company.

“Lovely restaurant with very friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were staying at the Z hotel on a part of our honeymoon and this is the hotel's restaurant. Breakfasts here were great. We never had lunch here but we did have dinner there once - it was on an african-themed evening with dancers and a set menu. The food was very tasty and the entertainment was great.

We ate there several nights - tried other places but kept coming back. the imported steak was fantastic , perfectly cooked
Getting a seat on the outside terrace gave you fantastic views
Sevice wasn't the fastest but everything was cooked to order and it was always busy when we were there

“Saruche Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Great setting among the various hotels and eating places in the Nungwi area. Food and service quite good, prices moderate to higher end. I think the manager/owner is Indian... he visited our each of the two times we ate here, and the curry dishes were especially good. Of the five or six places we ate in Nungwi, I would rate it toward the top.

A romantic place to eat. Great staff and food. The menu seemed to rotate every 2 days. The curries and seafood are definitely recommended.
