Today we went to The Rock.
I actually found this restaurant on Pinterest, while doing some trip research. (How's that for actioning a pin!) It was a half hour taxi ride to get here, and the restaurant is not cheap by Zanzibar standards, but so worth it!
A bottle of rosé to share and a waiter with great personality (and service) - he joked 'pole pole' meaning slowly in Swahili every time he topped up our wine glasses a little and returned the rest to ice - guaranteed a good lunch.
Fried calamari and prawns to share.
Grilled fish for me while Mike had a vanilla and prawn gnocchi. Even the salad was delicious!
A long, lazy lunch. Oh yeah, complete was a lovely chocolate mousse. :)
Low tide when we arrived, we had simply walked out the restaurant. I don't know of any other restaurants with a complimentary boat service! ;)
After lunch we had a swim, read our books and relaxed in the shade.
One last drink at a lovely bar, Upendo, shoreside this time, before catching the taxi back 'home'.
Loving the passionfruit juice over here, as well as banana and mango smoothies. After much consideration of alternative African beers, Mike has decided Tusker is his favourite. ;)
We interrupted our afternoon relaxation to have a swim in the hotel pool. A few goats walked in the front gate and wondered past. As we ate dinner this evening, a chicken walked into the dining room. (Mike's comment - Talk about fresh.)
