“A pleasure to eat there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Good fresh fish and vegetables, simple but well cooked. A relief to find fish which wasn't overcooked. Best to go at lunchtime or early evening unless you like loud music on some nights, in which case, later is for you. Great view of the sea.

Greetings Constable!

It is a pleasure receiving a response from your experience here, where we appreciate the time you have taken in doing so.

We have live music on a Friday night with a local Afro Jazz Fusion band (of which you where seated for); a party on our Rooftop Cocktail Deck on a Saturday night and a Live Taarab Band for Lunch on a Sunday. Other than that, we play soft lounge music through our in-house sound system that adds a comfortable ambiance to ones dining experience.

Really glad you were able to enjoy well prepared food and enjoy the beautiful view here.

Kind Regards,

Dane

“beautiful view from terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The food and service was really very good and they accommodated a large group of us on the outside terrace at short notice. Unfortunately there were quite a few things unavailable on the menu but I would recommend the vanilla and peanut butter milkshake-amazing!!

Dear "Jmm73"

We are able to accommodate for all guests- families, groups, students, etc. and appreciated the opportunity in being able to host your group this evening.

As we source our products fresh and daily, it means that there will be at very rare times a few items that get sold out during a busy service. Unfortunately you experienced this, where it is not the norm and apologise for that. I would rather guests appreciate fresh items as opposed to preparing these from frozen. As we offer a wide selection of items from the menu, it ensures that there are plenty of options to choose from though, and look forward to welcoming you back to try what you missed out on.

As per the Vanilla and Peanut Butter Milkshake- it is also one of my favourites, where guests are able to choose from a good selection to ensure their taste buds are tantalized!

All the best!

Short, sweet and too the point! We source our seafood fresh daily and glad that you were able to appreciate that. Service is important to us, where you are able to enjoy the view while relaxing to a delicious meal.

Until your returned visit, safe travels.

“one of the best restaurants in Zanzibar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We certainly enjoyed our lovely lunch that we had in this restaurant. Our bill included wine and beer and was a reasonable $34.40! The wine offered, by the glass, was the best glass of wine I had during our trip! We enjoyed the 5 star service as well.

As a side note, this restaurant has a lovely view looking out over the Indian Ocean. For what ever reason, the entire length of the restaurant was blocked by a green curtain, of some type, which obscured the view. I assume the curtain was there for security reasons but that is just a guess, on my part.

At any rate, the food is delicious and you will not be disappointed.

Also, very important, for travelers to Zanzibar, they accept credit cards. Most of the restaurants were cash only!!

Thank you for such a detailed and honest review of your experience here at our restaurant.

What should have been noted is that you visited the island during the Holy Month of Ramadhan. To show our respect to those following Islam, we put up this green shade cloth so that people would not see our guests eating while fasting. It is only for this period of a month where it is now down for our guests to fully appreciate the view we have to offer.

As per the Wine- we really do pride ourselves in offering guests the best selection of wines in East Africa and ensure the House Wines are selected accordingly for the best of guest satisfaction. We are really glad you enjoyed the glass selected.

We do accept credit cards in both Dollars and local Shillings, realizing the challenges faced with such transactions.

Again, thank you for such a great review. Our service staff, alongside all departments,will be included in your comments.

Kind Regards,

Dane

“All about the rooftop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

The rooftop bar has one of best views of the sunset across Stonetown, amazing drinks with a good happy hour and the best music we heard on the whole island. Wasn't expecting to hear deep house mixes all the way out in Africa. No prostitutes in this bar either was a nice change (neighbouring bar Tatu is really bad for this). Waiters were really friendly. Definitely the best bar we visited out whole trip!
