A Dreamy Afternoon At The Rock
Accessed by boat at full tide and on foot over a narrow coral embankment when the tide is out, the setting of this picturesque shack perched on a rocky outcrop of the Michamwi Pingwe coast of Zanzibar, justifies its inclusion in many top restaurant lists
And our 90 minute taxi ride from Stone Town!
Sipping on a chilled mango and pineapple cooler on the sunny terrace at the rear lulled me into such a dreamy stupor, that all I have to show for our fabulously fresh seafood lunch of crisp fried mixed seafood, queen prawns marinated with garlic and olive oil, and a shared pasta served with crispy prawns spiced with Zanzibari vanilla, is a pile of prawn heads on R’s plate. I recovered in time for my dessert of pineapple flambé with cinnamon and coconut ice cream, but I clearly have no career in food blogging!
A young couple, soaking up the sun on the terrace long after lunch, asked us if this was one of the most beautiful restaurants we had eaten in. It was. I only wished we could have waited for the tide to turn.
Prior reservations recommended through their website. Dress code is very casual.
