The five-course dinner menu at The Zanzibari is different every day. The meals and most of the recipes were designed by our own chefs and are a fusion of European and traditional Zanzibari dishes. Dinner is included for guests on Half Board. You can also choose to have a special table setup for you in the privacy of the garden.
For your starter or a simple snack, we offer our signature coconut king prawns, tasty samosas and fishcakes and the best fries around. You can finish your meal with homemade ice-cream or dessert of the day.
