We had regular dinners off the menu as well as a buffet night that featured an impressive spread of local dishes! All excellent.

From the outside the kitchen seemed really really clean, which is not always the case in Zanzibar. The food was nice without being exceptional. Sea food platter is a very good option but be sure to book in advance. The service was really good and really well organized even for a large group, which is clearly not always the case... More

Lovely restful place, good accommodation, excellent service, good food. Friendly staff, very helpful and good transfers and help with everything we wanted. Nothing too much trouble. European but with authentic African decor.

We actually stayed at the Bellevue lodge and we had a great time. I wish the rooms had air conditioning - or rather better passive ventilation would be more than sufficient - but overall we had a great time. The restaurant itself served the best pancakes i've ever had - don't ask me how but they seem to re-heat pancakes... More

We came to Bellevue for dinner. It is set up a hill away from the beach, so if you want a beach front restaurant this isn't for you. That said it had a lovely relaxed feel to it and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The chicken curry had a good flavour although didn't contain a lot of chicken. The prices... More

The sign on the beach advertised a wide variety of menu items, like curries and Asian dishes, but actually the menu and food were really ordinary like most other places in town. We went for lunch and tried to find out if the dinner menu was different, but they said the chef just decides what to make when he arrives... More

We stayed at a place nearby had dinner at the Bellevue on 4 evenings and the food has always been excellent, no matter wether we had fish, or chicken or curry. If you stay at Bwejuu, don't try other places, you won't find a better one!

We had a dinner over here. The food was really good! only we didn't went back for a second time by the reason my partner and I like it more, like the local way. This place is managed by really friendly Dutch couple, but we'd like it more to hear the stories of the real locals.

We ate here several times while staying at the guesthouse. All our lunches and dinners were tasty and well-priced. The only let-down was the seafood platter, everything else was great.

Food is great, gourmet quality. Presentation is lovely. Price is on the expensive side compared to the rest of the island, more expensive than hotels in Zanzibar town. Portion is small, if you're really hungry take all the different courses of the meal and you will be more than full. It might be me though, I had just gotten off... More
