A little hard to get in touch with the waiters, but the food was excellent. We had a nice Surf’n’Turf and a fantastic roast chicken with artichoke sauce on tagliatelle. The drinks were nothing special and the price a bit steep.

We enjoyed dinners on the beach where the tables are set up at night. Food of a very high quality and the staff are very attentive. The pork belly was amazing.

Z Hotel’s main restaurant, Saruche, offers a four course Table de Hote Menu of African-European fusion cuisine as well as a variety of fresh-from-the-ocean fish and seafood. We have created a sophisticated, yet relaxed atmosphere where you can sample some of the finest cuisine Zanzibar has to offer and taste fine wines from our international wine selection.Other than sampling our delicious four course Table de Hote Menu, we do also offer themed buffet evenings on select nights. Ranging from the Seafood Fiesta to Traditional African style meals, all accompanied by live entertainment. With stunning views across the ocean, Saruche restaurant rests on the edge of a small cliff where you can eat al fresco on a deck over the ocean with only the rippling tide to keep you company.
