We only stayed at Jambiani for 2 nights so only discovered it on our last day. Food was delicious, very big choice of food (compared t other places with standard menu), cheapest as well (12 usd for 2 ppl lunch with soft drinks).

We found this italian managed restaurant walking on the beach. The food availability depends on the cath of the day but you can be sure it is really fresh. They are a piece of Italy in Zanziabar: cheap price and familiar service!
