“Go for the 12 inch fresh crab!”

Twisted Palms Lodge & Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 5 Restaurants in Bwejuu
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 September 2013

We stayed next door at the Evergreen, but this was the place to eat. The fresh crab was divine. It was so huge its legs spilled off the plate, and all for about 12000 Tsh (about $5 I think) The restaurant juts over the beach and is on stilts and offers great views down the beach. Their menu changes daily and is always just slightly below the prices of the restaurant in the Evergreen. Great malty Serengeti beer too!

After reading other reviews we stopped in at twisted palms for early dinner. Was so disappointed the hut was in desperate need of tlc, it lacked atmosphere, service was robotic and the beach was disgusting. Covered in litter and seaweed(I know this cant be helped but other places rake it up). The chicken masala with rice I ordered was served up mainly consisting of fatty skin and gristle. My partner ordered fish and enjoyed it though so perhaps seafood is their speciality. The menu changes on a daily basis by the looks of it. Toilet facilities were disgusting and need to be improved. Overall was not impressed and certainly wouldn't return.

We enjoyed seafood platter and kingfish and chips (children). Delicious octopus salad for starter. Very good value. We were staying next door at Evergreen Bungalows - it was good to be able to come here when we had power cuts in the eveing as (unlike some places) they had a generator.
