A small but very nice place with tasty food straight from the ocean. Mohammed is a nice host and his family prepares delicious meals!

This restaurant in Jambiani only serves by reservation, because they only fish the seafood in the day you will eat it. Very fresh food, good price and the host is friendly. If you are in Jambiani, don't miss the opportunity to go there.

Informal and local restaurant in Jambiani. The food is great (we ate seafood and local dishes) and the owner is really kind and helpful. Better to book in advance.
