The restaurant was fine, the serve mostly seafood, so meat person will have very limited choice. Prices a little bit high. There is a place to dance in the evenings. But the service and staff one of the worst we experienced in Nungwi.

Just on the beach, close to Mamma Mia restaurant, Cholos Bar offers a delicious ice coffee. Medium price for coffee, medium-hight for alcoholic drinks on the night, crowded on friday and saturday night.
