Peter Pan on the beach is a special restaurant. The food is delicious and the menu has a great choice. The service is more than professional. The price, compared to the range of Jambiani, is very fair. I recommend the restaurant as unique in the...panorama of this South cost of Zanzibar.More

Service was extremely slow. Food was ok but nothing special. Tried octopus in coconut and fish in coconut and banana soup. Do not return.

Great Italian food - could have been on the beach by Conero. Low key feel, good selection and reasonable price. 100% recommend. Lethal Long Island Iced Tea - you will only need 1 - I promise you ;-)

We said ok when they told us the 5% like in the rest of Jambiani, but after that they told us that their boss order them to make another exchange from shillings to dolars. A 37000tzs bill converted into 44000tzs bill. Bad move to catch...clients during Covid time. Cuidado con el pago con tarjeta! Te cobran lo que quieren haciendo su propia conversión, política del jefe del lugar según nos dijeron los camareros. Terminamos pagando 3€ de más con la tontería.More

Looking for a cheap Paradise? This is it. A family run resort, huge relax, great Italian and international food. It is clean, calm, peaceful, small enough, well served and comfortable. The beach is at a 5 minutes walk, but they have room on the seaside...too. My heat felt congratulations to the owners, funny and helpful. I'll bring all my family here very soon. It is a promise... Un piccolo paradiso a costi davvero concorrenziali. Piccolo il giusto, calmo, tranquillo con piscina e ogni confort. Cucina di livello, italiana ma non solo. La spiaggia è a pochi minuti a piedi con spazio riservato, bar e cucina, ma ci sknoo anche alcune camere di fronte al mare. Complimenti ai proprietari, gentili e simpatici. Ci porterò presto tutta la famiglia. ConsigliatissimoMore

We spent a week in the hotel and had dinner nearly every night in the restaurant as the food is really excellent I don't often order pizza but as this is an Italian restaurant chose it the first night and can honestly say it is...the best pizza ,I've ever had. Better than any I've eaten in Italy But every dish we chose was really good Prices of food and drinks are great value Strongly recommendMore

first of all, the place is charming, staff very welcoming and place is clean. this 5* straight away followed all by very good food, pasta and pizzas are very tasty and good portioned even if some like to share mains to start with. good selection...of local food too and fish dishes. drinks menu good variety despite the little (in my opinion) high prices of wines. in case they also have bungalows for those interested. overall 5* is deserved and we often visit the place as we feel like at home. well done!More

First the good news: nice place, friendly staff, great pizza But when you ask for the bill they first add 5% because you pay with Visa. Ok, that I can understand but: I had to pay 135$ according the bill. But after my check of...the exchange rate of the day, I found out they charged me 32$ too much! When I asked to review the rate the waiter told me they added another 30% because I did not pay in shilling! When I suggested to pay by Visa ànd in Shilling the boss himself (the Italian owner) came to shout me some Italian words and told me I should have gone to the ATM and pay in cash and shilling. After refusing to pay this ridiculous amount they wanted to steal from me, they allowed me to pay in $ and with Visa, not in Shilling and that was it. Weird story but this is a tourist trap to me. The table next to us checked also their bill when they heard me talking to the waiter and needed to do some recalc also ... Very strange this isn’t mentioned here yet. Bill and proof available on requestMore
