Description: Ocean Restaurant, on the beach in Paje, Zanzibar, serves fantastic seafood, grills and pastas, with desserts to die for! Come straight off the beach and enjoy a cold drink, a lazy lunch or laid back dinner. We also serve a cafe menu during the day.

Ocean Restaurant is not easy to find. It lies at Paje beach between Teddys Place and Jambo Bar. I only went there because I had been diving with Bucaneer Diving which is actually connected to the restaurant. And I was lucky to have the opportunity to eat there. The grilled prawns I ate were fantastic. The aglio mayonnaise that came with it amazing! The wedges perfect. The traditonal coffee ceremony beautiful. My friend had smoothies and salad. Both great. An absolute must if you stay in Paje.

Ate at Ocean twice so far, both times i had the same thing (Beef skewers) on recommendation from the manager. The staff try really hard to appease everyone it seems, which for africa is a novelty. Value for money was impressive based on the high qaulity of food i received both times, would recommend to groups or a solo traveller alike... Thumbs up.

Good food and relatively quick service for dinner (it helps if you pre-order). Nice atmosphere and good music too. We found prices a little bit on the high side compared to other places we ate in Zanzibar, but we're talking $1 or 2 per dish.
Another case of wrong location though - the restaurant is next to the Arabian Nights Suites and Annex and behind the Dive Centre but is not part of the hotel. If you eat at the restaurant in the Arabian Nights Suites you will be eating in a different restaurant; I think it's called Cinnamon, which is not as good.
