Mnarani Beach Cottages

Our Restaurant & Bar - Mnarani Beach Cottages

Zanzibar is famed for its fresh seafood and variety of spices – both feature prominently on Mnarani’s restaurant menu. Each morning the kitchen team provide a buffet breakfast, with homemade bread and pastries, fresh fruits and cereals, excellent coffee.  (How you would like your eggs cooked?).

A lunch menu is available with local dishes as well as pizzas and sandwiches.

The multi-course evening meal alternates between a fixed menu with a choice of dishes or a buffet which includes starters, salads as well as homemade Swahili dishes, international and vegetarian options. Don’t forget to try the resident Pastry Chef’s desserts.

You may also have the privilege of being introduced to Mnarani’s resident bush babies who love to eat at their own tree table in front of the restaurant most evenings.

If you require a special diet, have a yearning to taste other recipes, want to organize a special celebration, just let the Head Chef know. He and his team will do their best to accommodate you.


The bar and lounge area are set at one end of the expansive wooden deck overlooking the Indian Ocean. Relax and while away your time, sipping your choice of drink from our fine selection of wines, cocktails, and freshly prepared fruit juices, whilst listening to calming music and watching the waves.

For those of our guests who would like to take their own special bottle of wine to the bar, restaurant or public areas, we charge a $5 corkage fee.

The bar area includes a pool table, darts and satellite TV for your enjoyment. Try your hand at Bao, the traditional Zanzibari board game – our team will be happy to show you how it’s done!
