This is a beautiful setting on the terrace of a fine hotel. The ambiance was wonderful! The stars were out, the sounds of the ocean, candlelit tables, and not a single annoying bug! It's too bad the quality of the food was only average for such a beautiful setting. The prawn appetizer was good, but nothing special. none of our party of 4 liked the soup, and all of us felt our entrees were just OK. I had lobster thermidor and thought it was dry, needed more sauce, and the meat the chewy. I will say the banana creme brulee was delicious. At about $50pp, excluding wine, it was not a bargain. Much better meals can be had in Stone Town for half the price. I was really surprised since everything else about the Zanzibar Serena is exquisite. The breakfast served each morning is delicious, as are the crepes served poolside each afternoon.
