Restaurant is right by the sea and it has a beautiful view. The staff is very helpful. I was 5 times in this restaurant during the January 2017 and always ate different types of grilled fish: kingfish, tuna, swordfish, bluefish, etc. All kinds of fish were fresh and well prepared. They also have very delicious freshly squeezed juices.

After 15 days around Kenya and Tanzania, we found this restaurant next to our resort on the beach. Seafood and pasta are delicious, everything fresh and not overcooked like in other restaurants. If you want to taste fresh fish don't miss thos place. Prices are very reasonable comparing to other places with not so good kitchen.

I have eaten in many restaurants in Zanzibar over the years; I continue to return to the Twisted Palms because it is consistently excellent; great food, friendly informative service and the best location....right on the beach.

We came to Twisted Palms for dinner. It had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and you can sit right next to the sea. We had the seafood kebab and would definitely recommend it. This was our favourite meal in Bwejuu.

We walked the short distance from Upepo along the beach to the Twisted Palms for a drink on a couple of occasions. Really friendly staff with small gift shop attached.
