If you come to Nungwi, go for food to Cholos. They have some different things than other restaurants. Fresh fish, sushi and rolls are perfect. If you are a pizza-man, you can enjoy good pizza, as we did. Thanks Opaz

The bar has really unique shape and the area is nicely decorated. Their cocktails were made of fresh juices and were super tasty. They played good funky music putting everyone around in a good mood. The only disadvantage is its location close to local shops...More
