Add The Rock Restaurant to your bucket list ASAP! This charming seafood restaurant is in the most unique setting you'll ever see - literally on a rock in the middle of the sea. Its relatively new and has 14 tables, all of which are on a terrace with uninterrupted ocean views. During high tide, the restaurant can be accessed by boat from the mainland. During low tide, you can get there by foot. Open for lunch and dinner.

The Rock is a little bit out of the way, so its best to reserve a table in advance if you plan to make a special trip to get there.

TIP: to make the most of your time, combine a visit to The Rock with an excursion or other activities. Nearby is Jozani Park and the spice farm.

The Rock Restaurant at Michanwi Pingwe Beach is perhaps the most iconic place in all of Zanzibar - you've probably seen photos of it on social media! It's a small building seemingly impossibly perched on the top of a lone rock formation a few hundred feet out into the sea. While the food may not blow your mind, the setting 100% makes the experience!

You could criticize the food here -- it is good but doesn't quite live up to the pricing. That said, the location is so stunning and the atmosphere is so pleasant that only the harshest critics won't fall in love. The perfect place for sunset. Whether the tide is in or out, spectacularly beautiful.
