During our 7 days stay in Paje my girlfriend and I visited the restaurant several times. Sometimes for lunch, sometimes for dinner. The food is perhaps the most reasonably priced one in Paje. Value for money was more than great. We ate typical African food and we can say that most of the times food tasted amazing. However, one time... More

Great food for reasonable prices. Certainly worth a visit. Only downside is waiting time which can sometimes get as long as 2 hours. Best octopus in paje!

Just at the entrance of Paje by Night, you will find this restaurant, running by locals, on the right hand side, where you will enjoy the pleasure of fresh food for an economic price. But remember good things in life take time. That is the philosophy of all the places you will find in Paje. My advice is having a... More

The food is well prepared and quite reasonably priced and cheaper than the surrounding restaurants. The food takes time to come because its freshly prepared I think but you can go on the beach or do something else whilst your order is prepared. The good thing about this restaurant is it can be a one stop shop for tours too.... More

I am usually patient, but we waited 1h 45 minutes for food before we decided, screw this, let's go elsewhere. Maybe the food is good, I have no clue.

This place was recommended to me by a local and I loved it. Unlike everywhere else I didn't wait more than 10 minutes for my food (unlike the other restaurant the night before where I waited 2.5 hours) and it was delicious and even cheaper. The staff are lovely, the dishes plentiful and the service great. They don't serve beer... More

In general the food, the service and the prices were good. We ate fish and prawns in coconut curry sauce at it was ok. Although, my friend tried chicken malasa and she was disappointed.

The food was good and at very reasonable prices compared to many other restaurants in the area. Took a while for the food to be served but it's definitely worth a trip.
