Went for lunch and we were treated to fantastic service, chilled swahili cushion seating and very tasty food. However the key component of this place is its 360 views of the sea and stone town. A must visit. Apparently sunset is superb from there. Lunch...More

About
Description
The venerable "Emerson on Hurumzi", Grande Dame of restored palaces in Zanzibar has returned to service under the acclaimed management of "Emerson Spice". The same majestic building with the same spectacular views ...More is developing a new concept of lunch and dinner. Designed to marry the culture and style of the building with the distinct culinary heritage of the era, The main house that today hosts Emerson on Hurumzi has particular historical significance since it was where the abolition and emancipation of slaves occurred in the 1870's. The recent refurbishment attempts to maintain the quality and style of the period in which it was built in the late 1800's whilst combining period antique furnishings with colour and comfort of the 21st century, a curiously magnificent building with historical significance and unique style.
