It seems they have problem in kitchen, last day we ordered rolls, it came over cooked outside and frozen inside. Did not say any but went today for a nice piece of meat to cook on the stone. Still came frozen inside. This time I...sent it back. The manager came later and said it was not frozen. Well there is not much to say if the owner calls you a liar. Left and will never go backMore

You can get fresh seafood and enjoy the beautiful view over the Indian Ocean. Prices are not too high and the personnel is nice and comforting

The Dolphin is right on the beach front, so that is a big plus, the food is good with a wide selection especially on the fresh seafood side. Average prices and worth a visit, happy to go back.

Had a very good lunch at Dolphin in Pemba. We had lobster, prawns and chicken and it was real good quality. The waiter was friendly and showed us the fish and lobster available beforehand. The food was cooked to perfection and very tadtfull. If you...are looking for a true local Mozambican experience for a very reasonable price I can recommend this to anyone.More

Directly on the beach, fresh seafood, cheap beer, good service. Langustines very nicely prepared. They have offers on the board with fresh catch of the day. What else?

Food was good, not so much the seafood soup though, seemed a little dishwaterish! Unfortunately there is no way of getting there or away unless you have your own transport.

Enjoyed a couple of nice meals here during our stay in Pemba. Good food and helpful staff. Spent an afternoon here keeping dry during a heavy rainstorm.

A bit run down and if you are a tourist not the ideal beach restaurant, but compared to some other places the best place to eat on Wimbi beach. The menu is basic with average food at good prices and a view of the ocean...right on the beach.More
