For $15 each we had great dish of bbq tuna and curry, good size of food and lovely rice and chips. They had a wide variety of drinks too. Note: the white wine is sweet, no dry one. We sat... More

This is a great place to eat right on Nungwi beach. We sat inside under the shade, but in late afternoons they move the tables out onto the beach. Service was excellent and the price was more than reasonable. Definitely a place we'll visit again.

The service was very slow (common theme in the area). It took so long we were ready to cancel the order and just go to bed. Food came just in time-it was pretty good compared to some places thought we just got a pasta, so that is not too difficult to do poorly. The calamari was a bit thick and... More

Truly the best pizza you can get when in Nungwi beach,Zanzibar. We all had fish pizza and it was amazing.A good size and flavour to feel satisfied. The juices they make are great too ! And the location right on the white sandy beach makes the experience a complete pleasure. Thank you for the wonderful smiley service we received !
