Sat on the terrace which has a wonderful view of the city. Service is good but a little slow. Gin and tonics we're good. Good menu I ordered the vindaloo which was delicious. Well worth a visit and good value.

I didn't actually stay there but workshops from the Zanzibar Festival happened here and the place is beautiful! The views from the rooftop are AMAZING! The pool was so inviting and their pastries (which I did sample) we're YUMMY! The staff was very friendly too😊😊

Good wholesome food and a wide-ranging menu. Full bar service with some great cocktails and mocktails. Service a bit on the slow side.

Vegetarian options and natural juices attracted me to this Rooftop restaurant, but I personally dont like its urban view (well, you can see the sea from some toubles...) Lounge music and fair prices.More

Ate here with a group of about 20 people. Great location high up and towering above the rest of Stone Town, with lovely views of the sunset. It is therefore perfect for sundowners. We ate dinner too. Food pretty good. However, our evening was completely...More
