At Zanzibar they have a pretty basi menu-card which offers something for everyone but I recommend the pizza's which they make in a traditional stone oven which you can see as soon as you enter the beach. The service is fine, the food was good and especially on a saturday it tends to get quite busy with the happy hour... More

I made a long trek from one end of the island to the other because of the reviews of this place. It's advertised as having an International menu with an East African vibe so my expectations were quite high. I found it to be neither of those things. It was perfectly fine. Went for lunch. Service was just ok. I... More

We chose the rotisserie chicken instead of the pizza and we were not disappointed! The service was quick, the drinks we also great. The restaurant staff is mostly dutch (kids on the island for a year after university) but did speak english very well.

My family and I went here twice for dinner as our hotel was in that area. It was one of the best places around. The food, especially the chicken was just amazing. It was served in a pan with vegetables and kinda plain which I just loved. You were able to order a side with it. Big portion and very... More

Stopped in for lunch while on the beach there. We both had the Veggie Pannini, which were good. Service was actually not too bad, but could have been better. Good menu, basic bar food and prices are par for the course for the island.

We arrived in Boca Gentil in the evening on Jan 15. Despite the fact we did not have a reservation, they managed to squeeze us in. We were very appreciative.

Reserve, reserve early in the morning or you will never get a seat for dinner. If you stop by after 8:30 pm you might get a seat since a majority of the babies and small children have left. The food is rather inexpensive and quite good and they have a nice selection of wines. Saturday night's get together is well... More
