Went there for drinks with a couple of friends one night while visiting Zanzibar and had a very nice time. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere there with a few cocktails and snacks. I'd definitely recommend going there.

Great atmosphere and a nice view. Good food, but the portions were quite small with a pretty high price. After lunch we relaxed with a cold beer in the lounge area, wich was perfect!

I had a dinner at the restaurant and it's probably the best African food on the island. Located close to a beautiful beach it is perfect spot to spend time in leasure. Welcoming staff and very good servise.
