Description: The Zanzibar is an Imposing, Grand looking building that offers you the promise of a great dining experience, and it does not disappoint. Whether you choose to eat casually on the ground floor or terrace or fine dine in the beautifully decorated 1st Floor A la Carte dining room, the food is first class. We use only the finest and freshest produce and cook every dish fresh from scratch. The staff are friendly and welcoming when you arrive and are attentive and efficient during your meal. Our only concern is that you have an enjoyable visit and come back often. Our greatest thrill is serving the numerous customers who dine with us again and again.

“Nice restaurant”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a nice everyday restaurant on the old village. The food is good with a nice selection; 5 of us had 4 different dishes and all were very pleasant and good size portions. The only downside was the rice that came with the chicken piri piri which was a slightly weird sweet taste.

“A classy place + tasty food”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The food here was great, I had the steak. A little more expensive but when you eat in it you will see why. Ideal for a special occasion

“Well fed at the Zanzibar”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Tucked away inside the Old Village, an absolute fine dining experience. Huge Tiger Prawns and very spicy Chicken piripiri. Pricey but very much a venue to enjoy and relax in. Very good service the atmosphere excellent. Stayed at the Four Seasons but for style and cousine, Zanzibar had the edge.

“An excellent experience”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is a hidden gem! Situated in the Old Village, this restaurant has recently been refurbished and is setting high standards for food and ambiance. Good value for money and an excellent selection to suit all tastes. We have frequented it several times this week and have not been disappointed. Well worth a visit. We will definitely put it to the top of our list next year.
