“Good place to rest on a hot day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Food is excellent, the calamari tasty and well spiced and here was a wide range of juices. All reasonably priced. It has a really good feel and for those keen on combining food and souvenirs this place caters for you

Nicely decorated recently open place with full of antique display. I had a nice time, enjoying tasty sea foods and salad, very friendly customer service. Price was very reasonable too. Free wi-fi with good collection of gift items.

“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very very overpriced. And the service is attrociously slow, even for laid back Zanzibar. The food was certainly not worth the price, there are many other places where you'll find better value, better food and better service. I won't be returning.
