We went there several times to have a drink and swim in the sea. The service is very friendly and the beach rather quiet. They also have umbrellas against the sun if needed!

What an amazing hidden gem on maenam beach!! The seafood was fresh and delicious, (the banana and coconut soup for dessert was superb), the place and beach location felt romantic and the owner was delightful. I will never forget my time here. ❤️

We eat here after a long journey from Bangkok. Stunning location on the shore of Mae Nam Beach looking to koh phangan. We all enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent . It's definitely worth a visit if in Mae Nam

Myself and my partner visited Zenzibar this evening. I am always a fan of restaurants with beach views and the setting certainly did not disappoint! Made it there in time for their cocktail happy hour (99 baht) - admittedly the cocktails weren't of an amazing standard, but definitely good value at that price. I had the prawn pad thai, and...

Very nice place at the beach. Very romantic with the lights on the beach. We all ate some fresh fish and we loved it! If you want to eat some nice food, with not to many tourists this is definitly the place to go.

Admittedly Zenzibar isn't easy to get to but it is on Nae Mam beach which is one of the best beaches on the island which you can have virtually to yourself often. And admittedly it doesn't have the waitresses in traditional dress and all the fancy surroundings of the places at Fisherman's village. But for good honest value and excellent... More

We found this restaurant after the reviews we read on TA. This was the best lunch we have had and so cheap! We had the steamed whole fish and our kids had the burgers.
