A nice restaurant with good food and deserts. I have been there many times and tried various dishes; never been disappointed. Lately I tried the locals' favourite sticky date cake and it was yummy. Give it a go.

Great food. Positive staff. Went there 2-3 times during our time in stone town. Green curry with veg was fantastic and the homemade fresh chips to die for.

Visited the restaurant 2 weeks ago. This restauruant was the BEST. Clean, from top to bottom, Servers were EXCELLENT. I ordered freshly grilled swordfish and freshly grilled vegetables. The portions were very generous, and the fish was the best I have ever had. I HIGHLY recommend this place which is also facing the ocean. A real find!!!

Archipelago is a great restaurant catering to both swahili and international food. The pizzas are excellent, and so are the local dishes. It has a great shaded area with constant cool sea breeze blowing in your faces! Check it out!

Prices reasonable (very), the portions were big, and pilau rice was tasty. I ordered the 'grilled swordfish with pilau rice and avocado salsa'. Must visit!

We ate a vegetarian and a seafood pizza. Both were very good and there was a lot of seafood topping! It was surprisingly quiet and the service was quick. I thought it was good value.
