We ate here twice and both times the food was great - they have excellent daily specials and the deserts are good too. Nothing fancy but fresh and tasty. The prices were very reasonable too. Out of all the places we ate in Stonetown Archipelago had the best service and we recieved our food quickly on both occasions. This is in constrast to most of the other restaurants in Stonetown and Zanibar in general so it was the perfect place to go back to for a quick meal before heading to the airport.

It has a convenient location on the water front with a nice view over the beach (watch the locals repairing boats and local kids swimming).

The prices in the menu set the expectations for absolute top-notch food. The stuff served on the plate is what you might expect at a disappointing truck-stop cafe. Go to monsoon across the street instead.

I visited this restaurant on my second trip to Zanzibar. It was recommended by a friend in Moshi for having great seafood. My friend was correct, the seafood was excellent and very fresh! Served with vegetables and rice it was a great portion. We finished with the sticky date pudding - it was to die for! Decor is relaxed and very inviting - great for families!

Ranpal already said it all - I just wanted to add the photo. Food was quite good - the steamed fish was a great choice (on the board not in the menu - catch of the day). French fries were ok not great - red curry vegies nice.

food and service were fine, price was on a par with other restaurants catering to tourists, the steamed fish wash nice, the chips weren't that great, coconut red curry was a little bland for me but possibly ok for most people.
