Perhaps the best place to eat fish in Tofo. I've eaten grouper kebabs, oysters, squid stew, crab and octopus bruschetta and they've all been carefully prepared with the freshest ingredients. Even the accompanying salad was simple but perfect, and the barbecued sweet potato enough to satisfy but not to leave you feeling over-full. It's great for a light lunch, with amazing views of the Indian Ocean a few metres away, and it's great in the evening, when the lighting, decor, and music create a very mellow atmosphere. The owner-manager is especially helpful at explaining to you dishes you may not have tried before.

My family and I visited ZanziBeach twice during our stay in Tofo - once for dinner and then once for lunch the following day because we loved it so much! We were drawn to it immediately because of the menu, advertising fresh fish, which certainly did not disappoint. We enjoyed fish and squid skewers for dinner, and then tuna, crab and octopus accompanied by bread toasted in coconut oil, and salad for lunch. Both meals were absolutely delicious, and the friendly staff, candlelit setting and perfect beach music left us wishing only that we had discovered ZanziBeach sooner!

The decor was nice and the service was great, but the fish I had was rock hard. The octopus bruschetta was good, but overall a pretty mediocre dinner, especially for the higher than normal price. Maybe lunch might be better.

We concluded our month-long trip through southern Africa with a meal at Zanzibeach and what a lovely way to finish! Fresh and tasty food along with great cocktails and great host & staff makes this a must-visit place when enjoying a Tofo holiday.
