Quite expensive drink and food, but worth of stopping on the most beautiful spot in Nungwi. I adore this bridge and turquoise sea. We took some amazing photos there.

Delicious seafood and lobster. The kids enjoyed the kabobs and fries. The drinks options were delicious. You can enjoy this restuarant even if you are not staying in Essque Zalu. Perfect setting for a late lunch before the high tide.
