Loved this place. The spiced tea and intriguingly spiced fish and vegetable dishes were marvellous. The service was discreet and attentive and the music and decor were elegant and relaxing. It felt like an expensive restaurant but the prices were around Tsh 14,000 for a main course.

Located in the very center of Stone Town, Zanzibar, The Mistress of Spices is a must visit!! The food is beautifully presented and at the same time is super delicious! The restaurant is as grandly decorated as the boutique hotel (Jafferji House and Spa) itself. Full points!!

Try their Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta!!

Cheers,
Sarah.
