We opted for a late lunch at the Cinnamon Restaurant as we have already been to several other popular places around Nungwi and wanted to check out something new.

We ate here a few times. The food is nothing special, but it is better than most places in the area. The prices are a bit high for what the food is. Service is good.

Friendly environment and good food. Liked a lot. You have both snakes and some Asian food. The dessert brownie is good to share.

Cinnamon is a vibrant, 1st floor, open bar where you can quench your thirst with an ice cold beer on a lazy, sun-baked afternoon or sample an aperitif from our extensive Champagne and cocktail menu.Cinnamon is located on what is recognized as the best place on the Island to view the magnificent Zanzibari sunset, relax and enjoy the atmosphere…with a cocktail in hand of course! If you’re looking for something special, we can also section off areas of the bar for private parties or a more intimate evening.The Cinnamon menu offers Asian fusion tapas and sharing platters, as well as simple classics like Fish & Chips, continental salads and Sushi.
