This was the best meal we had in Stonetown, the restaurant has the best vibe in Stonetown, chilled and relaxed. Staff amazing and friendly. A must!

The sunset was beautiful However after reading many reviews about the food, ambience and staff we were disappointed... After been rudely and aggressively shouted at by a male staff member to remove my Niqab as I walking to the bathroom, I wasn’t feeling comfortable to...stay in the restaurant anymore We ate our average meal (as we had already ordered) and swiftly left, definitely not what we expected from a Muslim country and a “Highly anticipated” restaurant It’s important to note, we experienced warm receptions and unbelievably outstanding food from many other eateries in Zanzibar at far less cost, it’s a shame Beach house doesn’t know how to respect customersMore

I stayed in Zanzibar for over two weeks and kept going back to beach house- unmatched culinary experience on the island. The seafood is fresh and delicious, and the food in general is very well professionally presented. The restaurant also boasts beautiful sunsets and a...very cozy vibe, which makes it perfect for any time of the day.More

What a wonderful surprises. This place is beautiful and well taken care off. You can tell te place has a western touch. The service was fantastic and the food was the best off all. We had the Zanzibar pizza to start and then I got...the best of the surprises. I order the Zafron Chicken Paella and let me tell you, as a Spanish I take this serious, it was the best paella I had outside of Spain, the rice was flavorful and cocked on point.More

The setting of this restaurant is just gorgeous, right on the ocean. Relaxed atmosphere and chilling vibes. The staff is pleasant and very caring. The cocktails are delicious and the food meets all expectations, whatever the mood. For those with a sweet tooth, the desserts...are incredible (especially the chocolate fondant). I heard about the Café Corner that was going to appear in a few days, I can't wait to try it! In any case, I recommend this establishment to all those who are visiting Stone Town, you will not be disappointed.More

Very very friendly and happy staff! With a gorgeous deck right in the water. We didn’t order any food here as we were just having drinks which were great, budget friendly however slightly on the more expensive side, nevertheless the view and locations really makes...up for it. Most definitely recommend this for a nice sunset drink!!More

The service was extremely poor and the waitress outright rude. We eventually left, as she never came back to take our drinks or food order. There was nothing on the menu that looked appetizing in any way, and the drinks were overpriced compared to other...restaurants in the area.More

Dear John, Thank you for your question. We take reservations for 6 people and above. Other than that you are welcome to walk in any time. 6pm would be the best time to be in time for the sunset.
