Excellent fish, they also serve wine (by the bottle). If you don't want to wait, come early, order your menu and come back one hour later !

We've visited Stone Culture during holidays at Zanzibar. We've been at many places and eat at many restaurants, but Stone Culture is the best of them. Everyone should try "Fat Fat Fisherman", a dish thanks to which we'll definitely visit that place again.
