We visited Sansibar yesterday, we will most definitely be returning. With 350 different Gins from around the world. We will be returning soon. This trip was well worth it. The waiters explained the gins and food paring excellent.

This used to be our little secret sunset drinks bar. We had wonderful pizzas and burgers there always. Also the gin and tonics were wonderful. But without a doubt the best thing about this place is the location. The views outside are just majestic but...More
