I highly recommend Essque Zalu Zanzibar - the Jetty is amazing! Try the Swahili Night if you stay on a Saturday, lots of fun on the Jetty and great food! We had a fabulous stay.

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.

Good quality. At nights sometimes there is live music. I loved the band I listened on 2 September. Unfortunately I didn't get the name of this band.

This is hands down the best located romantic dining / sunset spot in Nungwi. Cocktails are awesome, try the Wasabi Sour. Very unusual kick! We shared some tapa's. Maybe not cheap per plate, but shared we had more than enough with 2/person. Beautiful plate make-up...More
