House of Spices has amazing food and service. Had Fritto misto here. It's an amazing delicacy of fried prawns, crab and squids. Very polite and helpful staff to recommend food. Quick services. Would definitely recommend this place to colegues and friends. Will definitely visit this place again.

Fantastic dreamy hotel that has kept the decos from the olden times of spice trade.
The food delicious a fusion of Zanzibar n Italian cuisine.
We loved the super service here and the smells of beautiful spices that are still sold in the reception
Recommend to all who love small cultural places and hotels

You need to enter via a souvenir shop and make your way upstairs to the restaurant. We had dinner in the restaurant and recommend the location for a relaxing dinner. We specially enjoyed the dessert and the fish special of the day. Food was good and prices are ok. Also there is a bar on the bar on the other side of the restaurant.

Totally overrated by the Lonely Planet guidebook. Food just ok, overpriced, minimal service. If you do not buy a bottle of wine upfront, it cost you the same for a half.
funny detail: the only place I have visited where it is impossible to mix home made eiscream flavors.

We sincerely do not understand whay you meant about wine
Wine has price x bottle and quarter BUT not half....

Eiscream: you can mix as you like. Again not sure what you mean.

Have you perhpas posted your review to the wrong restautant?

Maybe you are a trap client for restaurnts

Really enjoyed this restaurant- lots of extra touches. Very friendly staff. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our meal. I would recommend this place.
