The restaurant on the cliff...

This seafood restaurant is located on a  coastal cliff near the famous beach in Zanzibar - Michanvi Pingve. So restaurant is called - "Rock"

The restaurant can sail on a boat, but you can go barefoot in the sand - the owners will not be offended if you bring the sand to clean their floors. Because the floor is missing.

Sand instead of parquet, rough wooden benches, cane canopy and sea view, and it seems that in this restaurant filmed all existing movies  about the resorts.

During low tide you can go to a restaurant on the sea bottom.
