If you are in Zanzibar don’t miss the Zanzistar Lodge restaurant and their Beach Bar. Delicious food, very cosy & relax atmosphere, friendly service. Friends had told us they regretted discovering it only at the end of their holidays, now we definitely understand why!

The restaurant has a great view. They mostly offer italian food with a nice mixture of local taste. They dont accept credit cards though, only cash.
