We stayed at the lodge for three nights and never got tired of the food at the restaurant. The breakfasts are bountiful and delicious - our favorite was the breakfast burger. You also get freshly baked breads and a fruit salad. But the seafood is truly what takes the price. We tried octopus, lobster, calamari, and various fish - all... More

It is a beautifully designed restaurant overlooking the beach and ocean. Friendly and very professional staff . Every day different dishes on the menu with three choices per dish. It's better to choose several dishes because the dishes are quite small. We've eaten here several times and it was kind off hit or miss . One day I chose the... More

The food here is good, by Tanzanian standards, though we had better elsewhere on Zanzibar. The dishes are, however, seriously over-priced compared to other places. Mains between 30-40 000 tzh, which would have been acceptable if the food was amazing, but it’s not. Selection isn’t great, a few starters and 2-3 mains on offer each night. No vegetarian options for... More

We walked 40 minutes to check out the lunch menu at Green and Blue Restaurant. Because I am vegetarian it limits my dining options. The lunch was a set 3 or 4 course menu with a fixed price and did not meet my dietary requirements and so we only stayed for a drink. A large water, a cocktail and a... More

We were quite pleased with the food that was served, I guess we r not very picky type of customers, but we really enjoyed our stay, the waiters were very funny always trying to entertain us.

In a five star property with five star prices, one could have expected a high-end food experience. Unfortunately, it was far from being the case. Set menus were wrongly chosen, with pretientious wongly-executed dishes which were not in adequation with the location: on the first evening, we were served an overcooked lobster even more spoilt by an atrocious soja sauce...

This restaurant was just in the most idyllic spot - overlooking the beach (a proper white beach with little development or crowds, striking contrast with tourist Mecca Nungwi up north) - that even if the food had been terrible I would still have given Green and Blue three stars. I was just so pleased that the food outstripped even the... More

Beautifully laid out restaurant in a stunning setting looking out on turquoise seas and over Mnemba Atoll. Refreshing gentle sea breeze just perfect. Very professional friendly staff and first class service. The food is absolutely delicious - menu changes daily, caters to all tastes and includes mouthwatering dishes that incorporate local influences (try the cassava!). No one got food envy... More
