“Excellent food, excellent fresh lobster, excellent fresh fish!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

If you're in Zanzibar, Jambiani or Paje, RaCoCo Restaurant is a must!
Try its excellent local fish, fresh lobster, and Zanzibarian vegetarian food with special spies and original dressing. You find no-fat and very healthy food also for vegetarian's, prepared with care and good quality ingredients.
The professional Chef will provide you with delicious fresh plates expressly done for you.
RaCoCo Restaurant is in line with fair-trade attitudes with local staff and local management, it has been open in order to provide local young people with a good job opportunity.
For travellers it is a good chance to try local interesting tastes and speak with really nice people from Jambiani.
Very friendly staff, call them at: +255 77 3048894 for any information or for pick-up transport service.

“very good! "same same but differently"”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

we had lunch in Racoco last week and were very satisfied. Fresh fruit juice are very good and the seafood we had it was fresh and well cooked. It offers several dishes in line with the offer of the other restaurants. when you arrive you might think is really the same of being in one of the others restaurant in jambiani. actually, as an hanging tshirt has written on it, everything look the "same same but differntly". The restaurant also has several books (in different languages) that you can read there or take with you in exchange of the one you have just finished to read. we have spent several hours there with the owners, Rachid, who shared with us his future plans, and commitment in employing young people of the village. It is a very good place where to have fooda nd interesting chats and I am sure with the time it will be even better.
