We chose the rotisserie chicken instead of the pizza and we were not disappointed! The service was quick, the drinks we also great. The restaurant staff is mostly dutch (kids on the island for a year after university) but did speak english very well.

My family and I went here twice for dinner as our hotel was in that area. It was one of the best places around. The food, especially the chicken was just amazing. It was served in a pan with vegetables and kinda plain which I just loved. You were able to order a side with it. Big portion and very... More

Stopped in for lunch while on the beach there. We both had the Veggie Pannini, which were good. Service was actually not too bad, but could have been better. Good menu, basic bar food and prices are par for the course for the island.

We arrived in Boca Gentil in the evening on Jan 15. Despite the fact we did not have a reservation, they managed to squeeze us in. We were very appreciative.

Reserve, reserve early in the morning or you will never get a seat for dinner. If you stop by after 8:30 pm you might get a seat since a majority of the babies and small children have left. The food is rather inexpensive and quite good and they have a nice selection of wines. Saturday night's get together is well... More

We were at Zanzibar twice in Januari '17. First time it was very busy and staff was rushing. Service was poor and food OK. The second time we went there for a quick bite (pizza) and expected less. This time, although still busy, staff was more relaxed. A somewhat stressed floor manager was now behind the bar and that played... More

The burgers were great but would have ordered the other items on the menu if I would have known they came with fries too! Their menu only indicates their burgers come with fries but realized only later that their awesome looking sandwiches also came with fries too! I was super hungry and needed some fuel. That's okay. We still enjoyed... More
