Its a nice breezy colourful setting with water views and overlooking an area where people fix up traditional boats.

Very much a tourist restaurant but one which serves some pretty good food and some interesting and tasty Swahili options and specials.

Fresh fish, excellent juices, side dishes, beach view, open and fresh, clean toilet, reasonable prices. Try red snapper with ginger.

This place is central, provides reasonable food, for about average prices for stone town.

I wasn't blown away by the food but wasn't overly impressed either. Not a bad place to eat in your first day or two, however there are far better options in stone town.

Had dinner there a few nights, the marlin, tuna and swordfish were all prepared very well and the pilau rice was good. They don't serve beer but send you to a small bar a few doors up to get beer to bring back and drink with your meal. Staff pleasant, prices very fair and service very good.

Overall an enjoyable place to eat.

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).
