I was advised not to eat seafood due to the health risk, so I didn't. The mishkaki was brilliant. Food reasonably priced. Clean,neat and good experience... opens every night.

Sauces and traditional pizzas are wonderful..... A place to go every night as long as you are in Stone Town. It's also a good opportunity to observe people, not just to eat food.

Being a vegetarian, I did not eat anything here, but my friend enjoyed himself thoroughly. Apparently it was the best food he had eaten on the holiday. The sunset from there is very pretty, a nice place to stroll around in the evenings.

During the day it's nice to sit out and look over the harbour. There are a few harbour side restaurants to eat at. At night (6:30 PM ish) it becomes a food night market. There are a number of food stalls selling stick meat/chicken/prawns, schwarmas,...More
