Try crab challenge! God, as I start thinking about this dish, my mouth is watering... This place is next to the famous The Rock restaurant, but it could beat it easily. The chillest place on earth with the fastest on Zanzibar service (and you learn to appreciate it).

Had a drink here before dinner at "the Rock." Great cocktails. Chill atmosphere. Great scene of people who hang out here. Super friendly bartenders too.

We went to Upendo to see "the restaurant on the rock" which we had heard was fun to look at but did not have great food. What we found was a Paradise!!! Upendo is the definition of "tropical oasis!" The staff is wonderful, the food is great, the pool is refreshing and the view is unlike any thing you have ever seen! My family and I went back the very next day because we had so much fun. I would recommend Upendo to anyone!
