Ocean Restaurant Zanzibar

You are Here: › Ocean Restaurant

We were pretty disappointed in the quality of food and service in and around Jambiani - Ocean Restaurant was the relief we needed!

The food and service is excellent and a world away from the other places we have visited so far.

Ask to be taken to buccaneer diving - it's in the same compound if you can't find it.

We had chicken tikka skewers and fresh crab cannalloni, 81K for 2, including wine and a digest.

The food is phenomenal. It blends local spices with Arab food, Indian and French influences.

Make sure to try the Spice Rice, which is finished in the oven so there's crunchy bits of toasted rice and spices mixed in.

The staff is wonderful and curteous, there's a good selection of beer (local and imported) and service is pretty quick, considering this is the land of hakuna matata and nobody is in a hurry.

Oh, I discovered that HAKUNA MATATA is real Swahili for "no worries" or "no problem."

They really say it in Zanzibar - it's not a term made up for the Lion King movie. Enjoy The staff here bent over backwards to be welcoming, helpful and friendly.

We felt really spoilt when we came here and the food is WONDERFUL.

Fish curry, fish cakes and crab cakes are especially good.

Ambience wonderful too and owner and chef fantastic.

Could not rave more about this place. BEST FOOD AND SERVICE IN PAJE!
