Always smilling staff, food was fine, we have been here twice and every time ordered something else, and always tasted great. Service was fast, and the prices were not high.

We were sick after having diner here. They also charges us 20% on top of the bill, because we paid with creditcard. So check before you pay.

Average food, good price, average waiting time, good view, friendly staff, good beer. I wouldn't say it's my favourite spot, it wasn't special and it wasn't bad. I ate there twice and it was good enough for me.

This is really nice place for lunch. We ordered two tapas, seafood springrolls and beef as an appetizer and grilled calamari and octopus as main dish. Food was very good, natural taste without much african od any other spices.

Nice spot on a more quiet location of Nungwibeach. Our waiter was very friendly. Lots of options on the menu and food was ok but nothing special, not so much taste and quite salty but not expensive (actually, quite comparible to most restaurants in Nungwi)....More
