Although Zanzibar has anice atmosphere it is a noisy cafe as has bare wood floors. Also with a change in chef recently the cabinet food is not as good as it was.

Cafe style on edge of city with good outdoor seating. Cozy with timber floors but noisy when full. Menu is varied week to week and well presented. Recommended for lunch or dinner

We did book a table - luckily, as it was busy - christmas doo's. Very predictable meals etc - nothing stands out. Service not the best really, but, waitresses were friendly. Not in a hurry to return.

Called in one Saturday morning, only to be told that I needed to reserve. Place was empty. Mind you, that was few years ago, so no, I haven't been back

While we enjoy the food there very much, the wooden floors make for a very noisy resaturant when its busy. If you choose to dine outside, the smokers ruin that. Not a place to go if you want to really talk amongst yourselves. Excellent magazines...More
