BARS / RESTAURANTS

BARS & RESTAURANTS

The restaurant overlooks the sea, and serves various dishes inspired by traditional local Zanzibari cuisine which combines influences of Arabic, Indian and African flavours.

Dining takes places in the former lighthouse keeper's home which has been restored and remodelled into a giant-clam-shaped visitors’ centre and restaurant bungalow.

Dinner can also be taken outside on tables set up in the sand or by candlelight on the beach.

Guests are offered typical Zanzibarian cuisine, a delicious blend of Asian, Arabic, African and European traditions, made from local produce to minimise waste, packaging, processing, pollution and food miles, transported in locally made, biodegradable baskets.

This also helps raise awareness and pride in the local culture.
