If you have a lot of time to spare, the food is good, cheap, and has a nice choice of sandwiches. Very slow serving, though, even for Mozambican standards.

We went to Zanzi beach based on a recommendation from another couple that had gone there. The food was fantastic, I am usually not a big fan of clams, but these were so delicious. The Octopus and crab tapas were really, really good. Would highly...More

We stopped in at ZanziBeach without a reservation and it was no problem to get a table. The owner did mention that it's best to stop by in the afternoon and let him know you're interested in dinner, otherwise he may close up early. We...More

Nice owner serving a very simple healthy breakfast selection right on the beach. Simplicity is the key.

Basically check with the owner what he is cooking for dinner that night. He bases it on what the locals bring to him straight from the ocean. We had Squid and calamari and salad with mix of tapas, very nice.

I guess I tried about 60% of Tofo's restaurants, and while ZanziBeach's seafood is of the same (very high) quality as most others', its beachside location and house-like setting are quieter and even more charming than the cabana-style places.

The place to visit in Tofo to eat seafood, perfect location by the beach and with amazing staff. Great spot for a sunset drink or whale watching. Filipe Carvalho

Just seat and relax. Enjoy your 2M beer, and keep an eye on the sea in front of you ... hopefully you'll see some whale jumping. And this is not the best, let's taste what they are preparing. Start with some seafood, and follow with...More
