Perfect location right at the beach. The food is a bit pricey but so worth it. Had a strawberry drink which was really good and the fish was tasty

We come here every year and the food is unbeatable. This place sits right in the dunes, by the beach. You can either take the shuttle up the trail or walk 3-5 min. from the parking lot to the restaurant. The restaurant, has a playground for the kids, featuring a soccer ring and a bobby car ramp (at night the... More

We went there with a party of four for late lunch. The restaurant is in the dunes, approximately 200 yards to walk from the parking lot. You definitely need to make a reservation. The food was very good: we had a salad, the pork chop, fish and a curry sausage. Everything was very solid quality and worth the price. In... More

We had the coconut roll which was very tasty. Their sole was a bit dry but their selection of steaks was awesome!! We had the selection of... More

At Sansibar you get the best food in Germany. Unbelievably delicious with a nice variety of food in a very nice setting overviewing the beach.

A Mecca foe Sylt visitors. The most comprehensive wines and spirits list I have seen in my world travels. Food is fine. Unfortunately it has achieved cult status and therefore "over-popular", therefore crowded by "pilgrims". Chose a quieter time and enjoy something special.

If you visit Sylt this restaurant is a definite MUST GO! The atmosphere is great: you can see the North Sea, the food is excellent and the service is outstanding. We come here every time we visit Sylt. The crowd in the summer months is a bit overwhelming and it is hard to make a reservation for the evening, but... More

Located in the dunes of Rantum, this place feels cozy and relaxed. I have been here many times and the quality has gone downhill. Last time I ordered a Rib Eye steak that was far from good. This place has been a meeting spot for German TV personalities. This is why it is a bit snobby but that's part of... More

I had a great experience in Sansibar even it was mid-August, sunny day, the place was crowded inside and outside, but we could manage to get a nice table and a very nice lunch. I had an amazing salad with Serrano ham, figs, melon and honey vinagrette. Simply perfect. The food of my partner was also great. I found the... More
