From the outside it doesn't look like anything, but the inside is wonderful. A huge selection of cocktails and nice pizzas

“You can leave but you can never check out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

After staying at this place for a few nights I decided to extend as I enjoyed it so much. The food is amazing, everything is fresh and tasty. The service exceptional, don't be in a rush thou because everything is really laid back and relaxed. Thou the staff are very accommodating if you need anything at all. You can see the owner has worked hard to make you feel at home in a beautiful traditional Zanzibar environment. I went diving with One Ocean which was just a short walk up the beach. The village around this area is a great site to see, so get out and explore. I hope one day to return and recommend you stay here and experience this amazing place.

“Real good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We ate here twice and we could not fault it. Really nice tranquil setup and lots of cocktails to chose from. Best place to eat in Matemwe for a reasonable price.

“Relaxing, beautiful place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

We absolutely loved staying here. The room was reasonably large with air con and hot water in the en suite. The staff are extremely friendly and polite and the owners go out of their way to help. We were diving next door at the one ocean centre which was extremely convenient. The food is also delicious and there is a very well stocked bar. We hope to come back one day!

“Good fresh juices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

It is not a place you go for haute cuisine of course.
But it is perfect to get some coolness when the sun is so strong on the beach.
You can choose the fruits for your juice.
The price are the best around and you don't wait as much as at some other joints.
The crew as they call the waiters is friendly and not shy.
And for those who are addict to their connexion to the world, it isone of the rare place that has WIFI.
