The Rock Restaurant in Zanzibar, is one of the most original and unique restaurant in the world! Located on the shores of the beautiful Michanwi Pingwe beach, you’ll find this restaurant perched on top of a giant rock. When you think of Zanzibar, this restaurant will surely pop in to your mind.

Inside the restaurant there are only 12 tables, decorated in elegantly to suit the environment around.

Should I make a reservation?

Yes – definitely! You can make a reservation online on the official website. This restaurant gets incredibly busy so we recommend booking before your travels. An important consideration when booking is to check the tides, at certain times of the day the rock is beached, while at other times you’ll find it surrounded by the beautiful turquoise seas.

How to get there?

From Driftwood Beach Lodge, we can arrange a taxi for you, this drive is about 20 – 30 minutes. Once you reach the beach, there are 2 options to access the rock. If the tide is low, you can simply walk along the rock paths which lead you to the stairs. If the tide is high there is a small wooden boat that takes you to the entrance: this is a service offered by the restaurant.
