It's a mix of many things in one-a gift shop, cafe, restaurant, take out/ice drink palour, and lounge. They do not serve alcohol here but do have T.V.s. So, it has a bit of an odd disjointed feeling to it. But, the location is very handy if you need a break between shopping. They serve some nice iced drinks and snack food (calamari was delicous) and the service was really good. Prices were reasonable.Plus you can use their wifi to figure out what you want to do next.

Great spot for a coffee and free wi fi available. Right nextdoor to some good shopping spots and across the road from where Freddie Mercury was born.

Wow! What a spread! (Sunday Brunch) You can treat yourself to breakfast fare or enjoy the wonderful lunch selections like we did. I am normally not a fan of cheeseburgers but this is exceptional. The variety was great and the staff made sure that everything was filled and fresh. from check in to check out, the staff is fantastic. Loved the rock lobster! Can't say enough about the desserts. The tiramisu peach cobbler was out of this world! Kudos to the staff who managed and the stewards who served our table. We will definitely vacation here again.

went for dinner 3 times on my 8 day trip to Zanzibar with my partner. The food is tasty, the portions are good, the service very friendly and professional although a little on the slow side, prices were good and the music really nice and atmospheric.
The free wi-fi is a plus together with the great gift shop on the ground floor of the restaurant.
Liked the fresh pizzas, the burger and the really tasty vegetarian "curried vegetables" served in a coconut with rice on the side.

This is a good place to go and be quiet and have a good coffee or small meal..their chicken pie is especially good. Try the ice cream for a real treat.....good value for money and the service is excellent
