We got here at 11pm+ and stayed here for a few hours as the DJ played reggae songs. Chill out, dance, relax late night and meet others who are also there to relax.

We had fun and fun and fun in this simple and local pub in the hearth of Stone Town. It was our first time in Africa and we could not believe to eat such kind of nice food. The atmosphere is magic and the contest is very nice and ideal for young couples. We will be back soon!

Went here for a meal but cancelled order and left. Music from bar downstairs too loud and restaurant deserted.
