“Average food, nice location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

We ate here on jan 10th. The food was allright, nothing too special. Service is friendly, but seems to be a bit inexperienced, slow and inadequate. Nice location however, maybe better for a sundowner and snack.

“Pleasant location and atmosphere, but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

Livingstone restaurant is situated next to the city beach and not far from Forodhani Gardens and the House of Wonders. The ground floor area is wonderfully cool and airy and there is a very pleasant outdoor area partly on the beach and partly decked, with big shady trees, where you can watch the fishermen fixing up their boats.
The menu is pretty good and we had no problems with the food, which was well cooked and presented. Service was prompt and friendly.
The downside is that it is expensive - seafood and fries snack platter for two was 21,000 shillings or around $15. Beers and cider were in the 3-4 dollar range.
So overall, a very pleasant place to have lunch but not cheap.

“On the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Best place to sit on the beach in Stone Town, as the sun goes down! Happy hours is 5-7 ;)!
PS: watch out for the chairs on the sand, they can fall easily!

“Excellent friendly place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I went here with two of my work friends and we had one of the best nights. Not only were the food and drinks excellent but we also spent a lot of time with the bar owner and some of the regulars. It was a really exciting night that I will always remember.
