We ate here 5 nights in the trot and loved it. Octopus curry, calamari curry, fish curry, vegetable curry, we tried the lot and more. Oh and chips were very good to. Pancakes for breakfast along with fresh fruit and spicy tea.

We stopped off here while biking along the beach. Good that we did! We relaxed in the hammocks while the food was being prepared with our chocolate and banana milkshakes. The food was incredible, cooked in delicious spices. I had the fried calamari with fries...More

Fantastic little restauarant: Arguably the nicest food I had in Zanzibar. They cook everything from scratch. Superb food with lovely hosts/ service. They change the menu daily but if you can get calamari masala, get it: divine!

Best place to hang out overlooking beach and mellow. The food was delicious -- octopus, shrimp fried with cumin and lime, squid, fresh fish -- great Tanzanian food. If you're looking for pizza and burgers this is not the place.

Actually we wanted to go eat at the Rock, but when we saw Upendo, decided to eat there. They have nice relaxing areas and a great view on the Rock!

Enjoyed Zanzibar meatballs here - delicious, spicy - a nice change from seafood. When the evening power cut happened - we were left with just candlelight - and the sound of the sea. Very atmospheric!

Beautiful fresh food, great presentation including flowers. Wonderful use of spices and fresh seafood. A real treat. And a quiet restaurant in the off-season.
