We ate here a few times. The food is nothing special, but it is better than most places in the area. The prices are a bit high for what the food is. Service is good.

Friendly environment and good food. Liked a lot. You have both snakes and some Asian food. The dessert brownie is good to share.

Spent 6 nights at The Z Hotel recently, and ate most of my meals in Cinnamon. They've a great selection of dishes on the menu, ranging from light bites to full-blown main meals. Had read a few comments on TripAdvisor that there was a lack of available food, but throughout my stay I pretty much made my way through their... More

This restaurant has a great view of the ocean and the food, esp catch of the day, is really good. It sure fills you up for a moderate price.

We had a simple lunch in this small restaurant with an open kitchen, served by a very friendly and sincere staff. The freshness of the ingredients made me remember the real taste of food. I normally have problems in my bowels whenever i eat out in the city, but because any food place in Zanzibar is using local and fresh... More

There were 2 restaurants at The Z Hotel, the Saruche and the Cinnamon, the latter being less formal. We would launch here most days and every other night have dinner here. Food was excellent as was the service and it was a little cheaper than the Saruche. Good selection of drinks.

I visited this restaurant unfortunately on my second last day in Nungwi. If I had known about it earlier I would've definitely had all my meals here. We ordered the Tandoori chicken which was cooked to perfection. The food and service was outstanding. If you've been to Zanzibar, you'd know service isn't a priority here, however this is an exception... More

Cinnamon is a vibrant, 1st floor, open bar where you can quench your thirst with an ice cold beer on a lazy, sun-baked afternoon or sample an aperitif from our extensive Champagne and cocktail menu.Cinnamon is located on what is recognized as the best place on the Island to view the magnificent Zanzibari sunset, relax and enjoy the atmosphere…with a cocktail in hand of course! If you’re looking for something special, we can also section off areas of the bar for private parties or a more intimate evening.The Cinnamon menu offers Asian fusion tapas and sharing platters, as well as simple classics like Fish & Chips, continental salads and Sushi.
