“Good simple food”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

A nice quiet unassuming place that serves a good selection of tasty fish and other dishes. Recommended for light lunch or evening dinner.

Reviewed June 26, 2012

The archipelago is a really nice restaurant in Stone Town with a beautiful view to the Indian Ocean. Coffee is the best in Stone Town. You have to try the date cake, awesome.....

“Fresh and simple”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

It's a modest restaurant. Great open-air atmosphere for casual dining. The coffee is very good but the entree, masala prawns, was so-so.

“Great cafe with excellent fresh local dishes”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Archipelago makes great lattes and cappucinos, so a must for your coffee fix. Also serves lovely fresh authentic zanzibari food as well as some western dishes and is frequented by locals - a good sign. Situated near the water overlooking Forodhani Park it also offers great views and teh staff are smilingly attentive.

Good choice of food. Lovely Juices. Nice atmosphere particularly if the neighbouring Livingstones is closed.
