Good place to see the sunset and meet friends. The service is poor. Long waiting times, always something out of stock, coffee machine broken, no milk to make cappucino, no cold beer etc... staff not passionate to serve.

In the hustle and bustle that is Stone Town it is great to get away from it all for a while and sit with your feet in the sand and have a cool drink at Livingstone's. Sitting outside you're right on the water so you can watch the world go by - there is so much to see - even... More

The place is full of character and you see that simply when you sit and watch around the wide spectrum of people walking in. Best place to have a drink in stone town, close to waters, enjoying all the busy activities that happens around.

Nice bar and restaurant on the beach. Great place to sit down to relax and enjoy all the young kids and people jump in the water having great fun. Friendly staff.

We enjoyed the evenings at both 6 Degrees South and Africa House, but this was our favourite spot - lively and friendly!

Good food and drinks. Expensive in comparison to local food but this is to be expected. Overall a nice place. We had a sun downer and it was awesome

Although I only sat down on the terrace, drinking beer under the trees, I am very pleased with the location and the relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyijng the view, with my feet in the sand and even walked the few yards to cool down, knee deep in the blue sea!

Great place to sit and people watch. Great old building with an interesting history. Staircase inside was fantastic. Just a shame you have to wait for so long to be served and then when you order it seems like an age unless you order simple drinks. Beer arrived quickly, anything more complicated took over 15 minutes. We ordered some spring... More

We had cocktails here twice, service is slow but cocktails were great and the location is brilliant sitting right on the beach. Didn't eat so can't comment on the food.
