This was an unusual and very pleasant experience, which made our visit to Zanzibar so special. It is wonderful to watch the sun go down over Zanzibar from this vantage point. The food is very very good. (Due to the fact that we stayed at 236 Hurumzi, we also had breakfast at this restaurant each day. It comes highly recommended.

Fantastic location but oh so sleepy when we were there. Ok food but quiet and empty. Hard to be festive when you're the only customers

This is a very good place to get a seven course dinner and enjoy the breeze. It is placed on the roof of one of the towns highest buildings. The breeze makes the hot African night much more enjoyable. For 40USD they serve a stream of very good dishes.

Seriously disappointing food for $25. The 'snapper' was difficult to tell apart from the chicken. Service was ok and the view and ambiance was excellent.

Like the hotel that it sits on top of, this place is still living on its reputation as ‘Emerson and Green’, its initial label. Only half full on Saturday night, but this is off-season. You can sit either on cushions or in a side section at tables. Musicians on Saturday night. (5 of them) weren’t bad, but played less than an hour of the 2+ that I was there. Food certainly wasn’t bad, but I have had better at many places in Stone Town. Worthwhile for an entertaining evening – the view in all directions really is the best in town – but not a haven for foodies.
