We were there in the night of January,1st. Service was not very quick but was good. There was live music which was really nice. Food was good but not great ( I had fried fish which was very dry- Samaki wa kukaanga with ugali).

While discovering Stone town it is a really nice place to take a break just for a drink or lunch. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is delicious. You can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the ancient city, the harbor, the Portuguese fort.

the terrace is great! Spacious, very well organized with a restaurant side covered by a tent and an open part for sunset viewing. The staff is efficient and very nice. There is also a small pool. Local food is exellent , coctails need to be reviewed and ameliorated.

Stray off the menu a bit and ask the Head Chef to cook you some of his favorite dishes.... you will definitely be pleasantly surprised!
