“Lunch at Lazuli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Very close to the hotel we stayed at, excellent lunch - fish salad, fresh juices, tiny and clean. A bit tiny on the coffee choice, otherwise great.

“A must, if you're in stone town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Just great, simple, tasty fresh food and a nice service. What does one need more. This is definitely a place to checkout if you are in stone town. Best make a reservation because there are only a couple of tables. Don't miss this one .

“Best smoothies in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Excellent place for a nice light meal. We went there for dinner but I especially recommend it as a lunch stop while walking around Stone Town. Ingredients were all very fresh. It serves some amazing smoothies, coolers and fresh juices. We went back over and over just for those. The staff is very friendly.

“A casual place to eat delicious food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went there because of the good reviews from TripAdvisor, which were absolutely right!. We had dinner there and despite the long time we had to wait to be served, food was great and nice decorated.
Staff was very kind and helpful even with suggestion of places to visit in Stone Town.
It is rather a casual place to eat with a few tables, so go earlier to get a table or you have to wait for it. Enjoy the Mocktails and be aware that alcoholic beverages are not on the menu.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Fantastic fresh food. Best smoothies on the island. Great prices. Only problem is very small. Need reservations or get there right away at opening, about 615pm. Highly recommend.
