I was in Paje for 4 weeks and I had dinner and lunch in almost every restaurant. Finally, I always came back to Kilima Kidogo restaurant because the food was super delicious and fresh cooked, the staff well trained and friendly and they having fun together. That makes everything so cozy and a nice atmosphere. All plates are well decorated... More

Short, simple menu with common Swahili dishes, pizza, seafood, pasta. A few veggie items such a samosas, salad or bean-veggie wrap. Paid a reasonable corkage fee to drink our own champagne. Very good view of white sand beaches only a few meters away. Friendly but slow so best to order in advance if you can.

Just a regular restaurant. They serve the dishes very fast but maybe it was because there were just two other tables with guests. In comparison with other restaurants in Paje, is this one of the more expensives one but it isn't a very luxury one. The food was just good. The chicken of my husband was still raw at some... More

The first meal in Tanzania, after safari, that was GREAT! We had nice food in other places, but this restaurant is different. The spices, the way the food is prepared and how it looks on your plate makes it a party for your eyes, mouth and tummy! And not to forget the surroundings, because they really made it a cosy...

This bar & restaurant is part of the guesthouse but accessible for everyone. The food and drinks are good at reasonable prices. You can get a main course (diner) for around 10 USD.

Nice food, not very much though. The menu is in Dollars, which make is tourist prices. You do get a good rate when you pay in Shillings. Nice staff, nice ambiance.

Great outdoor restaurant with beach view and swimming pool. The food is delicious and a great range of cocktails to enjoy. Staff are friendly and attentive. You can't beat the chill environment.

The staff are friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed. You're right on the beach with the and between your toes. All of the food we had was good or very good and reasonably priced. There is a TV for those who want to catch up on the news or sports. Probably the best cocktails we had all holiday.

Wish we had discovered this place before we booked to stay next door. They offered meals and swimming pool to outside guests so we had the pleasure of visiting Kilima Kidogo. The rooms looked lovely with great views of the beach. It is really well organised and delightful place with lots to do if it rains or in the evenings.

Thank Linzi K
