Upendo has probably the best location on Zanzibar overlooking The Rock restaurant and set on a perfect white sandy beach. The music is cool and the seating areas are comfortable - wi-fi is good too. The food was tasty and delicious with the best burger I've tasted in a while. The wraps are fab too with homemade crunchy fries - highly recommended.

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.
