Captain Cook's restaurant Zanzibar

You are Here: › Captain Cook's restaurant

Good food in an infomal, cozy atmosphere. Good to make a reservation if you don't want wait to be served but, if there's space just go on in.

According to the owner, Captain Cook's restaurant is open 24.

We were lucky enough to run into "Captain Cook" on our first morning in Jambiani.

After telling us a little about local customs, he invited us to his restaurant for lunch.

We decided to give it a try and we are glad we did -- we had lunch that day and both of the following days; he even made us a packed lunch on the fourth day for our trip back to Stonetown!

Our favorites were the coconut crusted fish and the "Capt Cook" Style dessert.

His training at South African culinary school is evident (he is proud to show off his diploma and he'll also proudly show you the travel article from a Norwegian newspaper of which he was the subject).

He is an enterprising young businessman who is slowly building up his restaurant and guesthouse as funds become available.

Eating here you get a taste of the local cuisine and get to know a "real" local person. Don't miss trying it!
