Horrible Experience – Overpriced and tasteless food. Don’t know why we chose this outlet. We were walking down the beach, crossed Britto’s and many other outlets, thinking we will check on them in return for light meal. On moving further decided otherwise. Saw Bottle Bay which looked vacant, moved a little further saw Andrew’s and Zanzibar. As there were only... More

I always go to this shack only whenever I am at Baga. I have observer prices at this shack are bit on higher side as compared to places in Goa and must be in other places at Baga. But the experience is always good. Service is prompt. Sunbeds are also comfortable with towel and service is also good. Dont mind... More

This is one of the coolest places in Baga. I can say this is even better than Britto's. What I love here are the food and service. You sit, relax, eat and enjoy the view.

The shack has nice food and views, along with friendly service. Though the serving times are very long and it is a slightly expensive shack.

The other shacks had really loud annoying music. This one was nice. Soft beach sand. Good food. A cold beer. Sorted!

Zanzibar has been an all time favorite for me in Goa. It is expensive as compared, but again not as expensive as Brittos and much better, tho smaller. Almost on the beach, Zanzi offers everything you can think of and are not fussy about making it in the style that you would appreciate too, which makes them great. The Cocktails... More

The food was disappointing. Specially fish was not fresh and not properly cooked. We had Kingfish. Simple thing like fresh lime soda was also not properly made. Staff was not bothered. They in fact had 2 boards which rightly described their attitude towards customers.

I loved Zanzibar. The staff were very friendly, the food was good and the toilet was clean! It was everything you could want in a beach shack and my favourite on Baga beach.

One of the overpriced and unhygienic places in Baga. The food is extremely unhealthy, the staff is impolite and no amenities are available. AVOID as far as possible. There are a plethora of shacks available nearby with everything better.
