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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Good dining experience here. Sort of a seafood/Italian fusion place, for lack of a better word. My friend had the seafood salad, which was just okay in her opinion-looked line the salad greens came from a package mix. I had the La Base salad as...an appetizer and it was delicious. For our mains my friend had the grilled chicken and liked it very much. I had the fish of the day, which was grilled tuna and it was very good - moist and not over cooked. We sat in the upstairs balcony with a very nice sea view. Recommend.More

Recommended by our Hotel "Tropical Sunset" La Base was great, Maria took great care of us from the moment we arrived as did all the staff, friendly, great food and drinks we could find fault with the place. Swahili, English and Italian spoken, my wife...enjoyed practicing her Italian with the owners. I'd recommend disregarding the Beach Hotel Restaurants and put 'La Base' at the top of our recommended Places to Eat when at the beach, chill and hang out if visiting Kwingwa.More

Found this little gem while walking on Kiwengwa beach. Visited it several times during my week long trip to Zanzibar. Chilled vibe with sun beds, outdoor sofas and dining. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and consistently the best Aperol Spritz I have had outside of Italy....Recommend visiting.More

I stayed in la base for 5 days and the experience has been great. The restaurant is just in front of the beach so you'll definitely have a relaxing time while enjoying your meal or drinks. All the staff were great and they could even...make anything you request them to do. I totally recommend this place to hang out while you're at kiwengwa.More

I loved my stay at La Base in Kiwengwa, the hosts Cristian and Maria are so friendly and helpful that i felt like being home. The structure is new, confortable and very clean, located at few meters from the beach. At the restaurant you will...find an amazing selection of local dishes mixed with the italian cuisine, while sitting on a table on the beach and enjoying the amazing view on the sea. Kiwengwa is a beautiful area to spend your holiday with friends or family and also a perfect starting point to visit the island, I wish I could have stayed more in this paradise! Thank you!!More

Visited La base Junglekite for a lunch. Our selection of the place was based on the rating. The selection of food as average for the area, with a few interesting bits in the menu. Unfortunately some 30% of the menu was not available so we...were limited to pasta and burgers. We have discovered that one of the salads is not coming only when the rest f the food has already arrived. The service s average slow. From the bright side - food is good quality and very tasty. Special attention to Bruscetta with avocado and shrimps - awesome.More

Spent five days in this corner of paradise and couldn’t ask for more: super nice accommodation in B&B format, rooms are modern, decorated with minimalistic style, silent and surrounded by green. The breakfast is served at “La Base” restaurant, very cozy terrace right on the...beach. The food is fresh, cooked and served with care, the staff is kind, available and ready to go the extra mile to make you feel at home. But the best part: the view! It’s my first time in Zanzibar so I can’t tell how it looks otherwise, but I’m having what I consider to be the privilege of seeing the island half empty, and it’s gorgeous. Endless beach, very few people, wild nature. Went running in the late afternoon through the whole Kiwengwa beach - some uninterrupted 10 km back and forth and it was mind-blowing. If you are looking for a safe, covid-free detox moment, I highly recommend to come find it here.More
