That is a good and nice restaurant in the compound of flame tree cottage. You sit directly at the ocean and can watch the sun go down. A bit higher then the beach.

After visiting a number of restaurants along the beach this had by far the best setting, nicest staff, really well cooked food and everything we had from salads to the catch of the day were delicious. Highly recommended for a sunset drink followed by candlelight dinner!

Good food. Great location. Portion size of husband's seafood very small. Owner (Seif) very pleasant man and gave us 20% discount because of that and entertained us with stories of Zanzibar and his family. Will definitely visit again as Seif very welcoming and lovely.

Food is really good with varied menu. Had lunch and diner here. Setting is great on the beach. No music, Just the sound of the waves. Staff is very friendly. Food is reasonably priced. Might take a bit longer but you're on zanzibar. Pole pole and hakuna matata.

Lovely, tasty food! Nice service although it takes a while to get the food (as anywhere). It's a cozy place with a fantastic view of the sunset. It is in the quiet end on Nungwi beach away from the bigger places blasting club music. Very good!

The only place in Nungwi where we could find profi tuna salad during our 14 day stay and delicious crayfish.The location under African pine trees is comfortable both in the daytime and in the evening.

We walked down the beach one evening and chose this place at random. It was very inviting with candlelit tables above the beach and the signboard offered some tempting choices. We were not disappointed! Our meals were delicious and the service was very friendly. Our only regret was that we were unable to return!

We went to this place only for drinks late afternoon; quick service with fresh coconuts which were also great by taste and temperature. My husband's mango smoothie compared to others in the location which we had was rather small and thin, price was equal to other places on the beach (6000TS)

Thank HLUK
