Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little restaurant with nice food. Friendly staff and well cooked food. Today's catch is usually recommended as the fish will be freshest. Missing tablecloths but they used duvetcovers instead.

Very delicious food. We have been here two evenings in row and everything we tried was very delicious! Prices are very fair, comparing to europe very cheap. You only have to be patient, as it takes more than an hour until you get your food. But that‘s part of being in Tanzania. Pole pole

We really love this place! Bob is such a nice guy and the food is really good. You can get really good fish, meat and for Zanzibar many vegetarian options. I absolutely recommend! And it’s a really good place for meeting people, we loved spending the evenings (we’ve been there several times) with really nice people from Nepal, Greece, Algeria and so on :)

My boyfriend and I went for a diner at Bob's garden and we strongly recommend. The food is excellent with a lot of Swahili plats, and the service is really nice. If you stop by matemwe you should definitely try this address! :) Fanny

We arrived at this restaurant by accident. We just went for a walk outside the beach area and away from the resorts. Me and my boyfriend were very happy to find a place that offered an African experience, not like the resorts that can be very stiff. It was extremely nice to have a chat with the local waiter. He was very receptive and answered to all my inquisitive questions. The food was also very very good. My first order was octopus pilipili with ugali. Simply delicious. My boyfriend also enjoyed his food, though I don't remember what he ordered (but surely seafood). After the first meal we returned three more times and every time the food was good. We ordered seafood every time. I can't say that the waiting time was too long. We waited a bit, but the idea is to enjoy the moment. The portions are pretty big and you can choose between rice, ugali or chips as side dish with a bit of salad. My recommendation if you know that you don't need a lot to fill your belly is to tell them not to bring the side dish and the salad portion will be bigger. :) It's a way to reduce food waist. Regarding the prices, they are smaller than those from resorts or beach front restaurants. All in all,this place is not only about the food. It is a great experience with local people, an experience that can't be obtained if you don't move away from resorts.

Very welcoming place, with delicious traditional Swahili food, served with a smile and nice reggae music. We came one evening by curiosity and had to come back the following evening by pleasure!

Delicious food (we tried most of the dishes on the menu) and juices, friendly waiter, laid back atmosphere. We ate there every day during our stay in Matemwe. Definitely worth visiting.

Food and atmosphere were so nice that we went there twice. Absolutely recommended. Just call the place before as there are very few tourists during Covid-times, so you might want to pre-order your preferred dish.

A great place to sample fresh seafood cooked in a traditional manner. They offer a deliciously refreshing local fruit drink that rejuvenates you after a day's dive. Service is personalized and you end up making friends with the staff.
