“Beach front, good priced mixed menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Zanzibar is a fairly priced cafe style eatery on the beachfront in Seminyak. The menu was varied and included all the things you'd expect from any modern western cafe at reasonable prices (for expats)

“you can rely on zanzibar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Had dinner at Zanzibar twice on recent visit. A lot to choose from on menu. Some restaurants in Bali are a bit hit or miss. Always leave Zanzibar happy. Good service. Fireworks out the front on beach.

“"You can live on it - but it tastes like sh...."”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

The title quoting a line from an old Crocodile Dundee movie may be a bit harsh. The food here is typical tourist trap attraction food. Its OK and you dont starve when you leave.

But really, all the reviewers who gave this place 4 or 5 stars should consider visiting a a quality restaurant and get to know quality good food.

We had a Pizza, a calzone, the catch of the day (Mahi Mahi), Chicken satay, Pasta pesto and a strawberry salad, plus some starters.

Hawaiian Pizza, Calzone, Chicken satay and mahi mahi were all pretty boring and uninspired. It was cafeteria food and quality. The Pasta and salad were better. The starter springrolls were lousy and too cold, the bruschetta tasted like something from a gas station.

I would have given this place 3 stars, but we were wrongly billed a large beer we did not have, and it took a little while for the waiter to realize this. Even though we had reminded him of the missing beer halfway during our meal. So just two stars.

The view from the balcony is nice over the ocean.

We are not going back and will not recommend this Zanzibar.

Food was very good, setting outdoor excellent, staff very friendly, will go back again, chicken schnitzel was very good. Sit up stairs for ocean views and atmosphere.
