The Rock

Having read an article about this iconic restaurant I was excited to be going there for lunch. The restaurant, 
former fisherman's post, is located on a rock on the edge of the Indian Ocean at Michanvi, Pingwe beach, Zanzibar.


It can be reached on foot at low tide, or by boat at high tide.



It's spectacular, unfortunately the same could not be said for the food. My 
chocolate dessert was good but my lobster was overcooked and poorly presented 
on a plate of chips with tired looking meagre salad, and one dish was lukewarm.


It's a beautiful setting though with superb views. I'm glad I went just for the experience.

  3. Fabulous location but the practical side of me is thinking what happens when they have crazy wild weather, it just seems so vulnerable out there :) shame about the food.

    1. I didn't think about that, I wish I had asked now. It's not far from the shore, but I wouldn't want to be going out to it in the boat in wild weather!

  5. Zanzibar is certainly a place I would love to discover!
    Always makes me think of Freddy Mercury...!
    Wonderful dream pictures!
    Maybe the lobster had been frozen... Too bad.
