“This is now called Emerson & Greene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

After the long climb up about 6 flights of steps, the view and food was worth it. According to our waiter, this place is now under new management and with a new name. He explained the history of the building and tower and we settle in for one of the best meals that I have had since arriving in Tanzania 8 months ago. They have a set 4 course menu and you get your choice of appetizers, main, and desert. I had the red snapper in banana leaves and it was awesome. The first course was prawns and avocado salad, and I had the gelato for desert. All courses were excellent, the services was great, and the view was superb. I highly recommend this place. There were 10 of us and everyone had a really, really great time.

“Great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

We did not eat here and so I can not comment on the food. We just had a drink and watched the sunset. I actually wish we had got here earlier so I could have enjoyed the scenery for longer. Stonetown is an amazing and diverse city. I really enjoy walking around their little winding streets, but to get above them gives you a whole new appreciation for the town. The sun set is beautiful and its lovely to look out to see, but turn around and just take in the beauty and variety of Stonetown its self. Truly breath taking.

“Arabian style dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

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.

“Needs resuscitation”

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

“Get a seven course dinner and enjoy the breeze.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

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.
