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.

What a pleasure to have found this restaurant! Many other establishments always offer the same food, but at Ratatouille we found the real European standards that we missed so much during our holidays. From the starter to the dessert and the cheese, it's all there....I recommend it for those of you who, like us, needed a break for your stomachs.More

My wife and I went to Ratatouille for dinner and came back the next day for lunch. The food is wonderful, including the desserts--truly fine food, the best we had in Zanzibar, and far less expensive than similar meals in Europe or North America. All...the courses were highest quality. The chocolate fondant was spectacular. And their ratatouille (the owner's mother's recipe) was the best we ever had. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. In answer to our questions, the owner told us where we could buy good spices and which spices to buy there, and even told us which is the best type of vanilla to buy.More

The food was amazing! We ordered steak and tuna with gratine potatoes, and it was beyond our expectations! We visited France (Paris) on January 2024 and we hadn’t had better French food than in Ratatouille Restaurant. Also, we appreciated the explanation of the menu because...not everyone is familiar with French cuisine and it was great to know what you were going to eat. We would recommend this place 100%. The owners and staff were super friendly.More

Imagine a restaurant that serves mediocre meals (and stale bread) in minuscule quantities at exorbitant prices; where the owner’s dog (imported from France apparently) runs free in the dining area (this in a land where domestic dogs are not common); where the owner sits at...the front of the restaurant looking disheveled and entitled like some sort of colonial plantation master over-seeing enslaved persons (restaurant staff alternated from looking scared, ill at ease, or quite, quite bored while staring at you or trying to gamely avoid the dog); where your change is not returned to you (presumptuous). Welcome to Ratatouille. We were really surprised to see the owner playing with the dog (throwing a plastic bottle around) while diners were attempting to enjoy their meal. Why would you bring your dog to a Moslem country? From what we observed and encountered, the owner is quite arrogant (we are already imagining his sarcastic and untruthful reply to this review), dishonest (for example, extra charges on the final bill) and not respectful of the local culture. Having dined in numerous bistros throughout France, I would say the food was just “okay” and I am not sure this restaurant would make a go of it in his native land. Perhaps that is why the owner fled to Zanzibar to set up shop? There are plenty of dining options for families in Paje. Give the local cuisine (tasty and served with love) a try. We rate Ratatouille a definitive “non, merci”.More

The foot was pre-cooked and simply reheated (but not enough). So, it was like eating leftovers. A basket of stale bread was served without bread or oil. The concrete slab floor was dirty with stray cats roaming about.
