My tanzania friend wanted local food and I was happy to see they had Hamburger, fries and Bausinga Salad on the menu. Excellent burger!! Wonderful atmosphere. So happy we found the place.

Perfect food, very reasonable prices, and fantastic service. Bausinga is a wonderful guy. Definitely recommended! The best in Paje. We were offered a free delicious desert, and even a free ride back to the hotel.

You can eat here for less money than else and still very nice ! It's not at the beach but as the food is good and the people are nice it's a good place to go. We where surprised that there where so many people every day.

Yesterday we accidentely passed Bausinga and there were some people having lunch so... More

Right next to Paje by night. Seafood is the order of the day. They don't serve alcohol however you are welcome to bring or obtain from the bars nearby. The underlying theme in most of the reviews below is 'value for money' and this is undoubtedly the case. The seafood was delicious.

Unfortunately, we came here on our last night, but this restaurant had by far the best value on the beach. We ate well, were served relatively quickly and had a huge selection of dishes. I saw our kite instructor eating here with his visiting parents, and he told us this was the best restaurant on the beach, so must be... More
