We had chapati with chicken and Thai springrolls while the kids opted for pizzas. The chapati had a nice flavour of Zanzibar spices. I do believe though the chef could go even further in reveiling the true flaword of Zanzibar cooking. The spring rolls were tasty and nice. The pizzas are not bad, but lacks the crisp crust of a good Italian pizza. Desserts were very nice.

The service was good and attentive. Only nuisance is the 5 % extra charge they add everywhere for using a credit card.

Been there twice. They have nice cocktails, compared to the rest of the island bars. The place is ina great location, in the heart of the main beach where all the other bars/restaurants are. It is right on the shore. There is a happy hour between 5-7 where drinks are 5USD. The first time I had been there I had a seafood salad that was really lovely. The second time, fried fish...not very happy, quite dry and hard. My boyfriend has a fish curry that was ok. Bit pricey compared to the other restaurants. The credit card machine was broken and I had to go to the reception of the hotel to pay.

I visited cinnamon a few times during my stay in nungwi. It has beautiful views out over the beach and sea. The staff are nice and the menu is pretty varied. I thought the prices were quite reasonable.
I had the club sandwich was OK but my sister had the steak sandwich which was very nice.
All cocktails were delicious especially the gin and tonic with honey!
The best food I had there was the fried calamari which was delicious, enough for 2 people as a small appetizer or snack.
