Description: Z Hotel’s main restaurant, Saruche, offers a four course Table de Hote Menu of African-European fusion cuisine as well as a variety of fresh-from-the-ocean fish and seafood. We have created a sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere where you can sample some of the finest cuisine Zanzibar has to offer and taste fine wines from our international wine selection.Other than sampling our delicious four course Table de Hote Menu, we do also offer themed buffet evenings on select nights. Ranging from the Seafood Fiesta to Traditional African style meals, all accompanied by live entertainment. With stunning views across the ocean, Saruche restaurant rests on the edge of a small cliff where you can eat al fresco on a deck over the ocean with only the rippling tide to keep you company.

Beautiful presentation, delicious gourmet food, great service, trendy and romantic setting. Good wines. So happy that we choose this restaurant for our last meal on Zanzibar. I had the green curry king prawns.

For such a beautiful setting the food was really a disappointment. The shrimp skewers were an alright starter but the main courses-a curry and a fish dish were not flavourful. The dessert was also very basic. Cinnamon had a much better kitchen (located on balcony above) and more reasonable prices.

The service was attentive and some of the best we experienced on the island. It was also nice to be able to drink cocktails in such a romantic setting. Nonetheless, it felt a bit like a waste of money. I would go to Cinnamon before going to Saruche again.

We were staying at the Z hotel on a part of our honeymoon and this is the hotel's restaurant. Breakfasts here were great. We never had lunch here but we did have dinner there once - it was on an african-themed evening with dancers and a set menu. The food was very tasty and the entertainment was great.

We ate there several nights - tried other places but kept coming back. the imported steak was fantastic , perfectly cooked
Getting a seat on the outside terrace gave you fantastic views
Sevice wasn't the fastest but everything was cooked to order and it was always busy when we were there

Great setting among the various hotels and eating places in the Nungwi area. Food and service quite good, prices moderate to higher end. I think the manager/owner is Indian... he visited our each of the two times we ate here, and the curry dishes were especially good. Of the five or six places we ate in Nungwi, I would rate it toward the top.
