After a bone-shaking eight hour chapa and bus journey from Ilha de Mozambique to Pemba, this was the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer and a delicious pizza - right on beautiful Wembe beach, with excellent, smiling service.

I dined here once. The table staff don't speak English and it was a bit of a nightmare trying to explain my dietary requirements.

Finally, I got my message through and ordered somthing outide of the menu. It took forever to arrive. When it did arrive, it was dreadful - just some boiled vegetables and plain rice - no flavouring/spices, no creativity, no understanding, no idea why it too forever to prepare.

I did find 1 nice place to eat and that served decent quality food in Pemba City - Wilson's Wharf over on the other side of town. I would have eaten there all the time if I had transport! :)

This is the best place to eat in Pemba, the local fish delicious, the view great, the service slow but everything is over there, wine a bit pricey

Excellent place to be in Pemba! The food, service (even when its slow), the owners... And the place and the view just by the Wimbi beach make the Pemba Dolphin the best place to be in Pemba.

Try the shrimp specialities, and the fish plates. You may find a grilled stone fish an excellent choice. And you are on the seaside by the beach. Very friendly atmosphere and you should have to listen to Mr. Humberto, the owner. A greay memory story's lecturer.
