Essence Restaurant


Continental Zanzibar Restaurants

We are a beachfront restaurant located on Kendwa Beach near Kendwa Rocks. Dine with the ocean at your feet and experience the best that Zanzibar has to offer! We serve only the freshest local seafood and produce, and every dish showcases the best of the Spice Island. Our varied continental menu has something for everyone, and past favourites have included our Spice island Tagine, our yummy Grilled Cocounut Kingfish and the best shawarmas on the island!

Our bar is open from 12pm to midnight from Monday to Saturday, and we serve lunch from 12pm - 3pm and dinner from 6pm tp 10pm Monday to Saturday. We are closed Sundays.
