Great food, great service. Prices are reasonable especially in you pay in shilings. Also be on the lookout for The Rock opposite and visit both!

We worth visit.

Went for a drink at The Rock, and thank goodness we did as we stumbled across Upendo! Great location (despite the tide being out!), with a really relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, great food and a lovely pool to cool off in. Spent the day there, and we were reluctant to leave for the night! Returned the next day, when the weather was miserable, and still had a great time playing games, eating great food - and getting a tour of their Villa which had just been vacated - superb!

Upendo has probably the best location on Zanzibar overlooking The Rock restaurant and set on a perfect white sandy beach. The music is cool and the seating areas are comfortable - wi-fi is good too. The food was tasty and delicious with the best burger I've tasted in a while. The wraps are fab too with homemade crunchy fries - highly recommended.

Try crab challenge! God, as I start thinking about this dish, my mouth is watering... This place is next to the famous The Rock restaurant, but it could beat it easily. The chillest place on earth with the fastest on Zanzibar service (and you learn to appreciate it).
