Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have never seen such a restaurant. Clean new ambiance decorated with lots of plants on the cascading ceiling. In the evening the restaurant is bright ,bright with relaxing background music. They have a great choice of wines,and cocktails. When ordering they inform you that the pasta is only home made, from tagliatelle, tagliolini, penne, spaghetti waoo a lot of choice, we were guests in the residence so we tried various dishes.From spaghetti carbonara, the owners are keen to point out that the pancetta is Italian😄😉 ,tagliatelle with lobster , seafood gnocchi, crab with curry and ginger, the mixed fry seafood served on a boat, the gratin appetizer was delicious, a rich menu with fresh products, and finally you can not miss the tiramisu, and the chocolate salami. Known both from the environment and from the preparation of the dishes and menus, a work of precision and passion behind this great job, and this makes the difference.

As someone who is living in Jambiani, I'm always happy to try new restaurants. And so I did here. I can highly recommend a visit in their restaurant. Super friendly and well trained staff, good drinks (give the Maritini-Mojito a try) and very delicious food. Fresh homemade pasta, tasty seafood and sweet desserts. 😍 It's new, clean, open with a nice sea breeze and you will feel welcomed. You can't compare this place to all other restaurants in Jambiani. It's outstanding. They thought about everything. Your drinks will be served in upcycled glasses from a local business. They avoid unnecessary plastics like plastic straws and even serve some food in natural containers like coconuts. That's the right way to go. Everywhere but especially here on an island with too much rubbish. We will be back!

A wonderful dining experience tucked away in Jambiani on Zanzibar's East Coast. The seafood and pasta are fresh, and the service and setting cannot be beaten. Thank you once again for such a wonderful time!

If you are tired of chicken, fries, burgers at the beach and are looking for some more quality, then a nice evening at this italian restaurant is the answer. You are welcomed by a charming couple with 5 beautiful cats who will make you feel like you are in Italy. The food is nice, homemade and with italian cheese. We had a nice evening including a bottle of italian wine and a nice tiramis to finish it. Highly recommended!

This is a real Italian restaurant in zanzibar. Home made pasta, Italian products, a lot of work to produce the various meals. The pasta was very good, the crab with ginger was n°1. The employees and the owners are very nice and the place is a little paradise at night with lights and plants everywhere. You can go the for sure eyes closed if you want a break from seafood :) you just have to know that it is a bit more expensive than local restaurnant but the prices goes with quality, products, and work.

The ones who came again I think you name them crazy😄, but honestly first time when we visited this place we didn't have time to try all the dishes from the menu. So here we are again, nothing changed in terms of hospitality of the owners, staff, they are here to make your Zanzibar experience extraordinary.💗 As an italian restaurant you can find italian dishes ( they even have home made pasta, if you can believe this, in Zanzibar!! ), but at the same time, you'll find dishes with local touch to be tried. Portions are more than enough and all together with great atmosphere you can enjoy a nice dinner, lunch or breakfast. Thank you all again for nice welcome everytime, Davide, Annalisa & all the staff🤗 Kr, Mihaela

After a busy day in Zanzibar we went for a dinner in this amazing restaurant. Only by entering the place, all stress disappeared. The hosts are amazing, the vibes are amazing and the food was delicious. We definitely will come back during our stay! For everyone who enjoys a delicious meal and a good ambiance: we highly recommend to go to Gadea garden restaurant! Onur and Lize

First of all we want to thank staff and also the owner for making our family dinner an entire experience. The food was absolutely delicious, we cannot say that we recommend something because all dishes ordered were amazing!!! Crab coconut soup, please do not avoid it, add some spicy pepper and will be a blast ♡. Once again, thank you very much for everything. Regards, Mihaela

I can’t count the number of times I’ve been back to this amazing restaurant! The food and drinks here are delicious. You are treated to a real genuine taste of Italian cuisine made from well-sourced ingredients. My fiancé and I have kept coming back time and time again, bringing family and friends with us, and have never been disappointed. The owners and staff are so welcoming and make us feel at home every time. The restaurant decor is beautiful, with attention given to every detail, and gives a gorgeous ambience day and night. If you enjoy good food and drink this is a definite must for anyone in Zanzibar!

I am proud to say I have eaten there more than ten times and still counting, currently heading there for dinner. After living in Rome as a child, I have tremendous love for Italian food. This has caused me many issues as I struggled to be impressed by most Italian restaurants outside of Italy. For the first time since my last visit to Rome, with my first bite of their incredible pasta, my senses were sent back to my favourite restaurant in Rome. Since then I have now tried almost every pasta on their menu, I have also tried 2 of their incredible steaks amongst other items on the menu. I have to say I'm impressed every time I go there, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The owners are a lovely Italian couple, so friendly and make magnificent hosts. I imagine I will be eating there at least one meal a day for the rest of my stay in Zanzibar. I will definitely be back again on my next visit to Zanzibar.

Yesterday we had dinner at the gardea garden and we enjoyed it so much. The pasta was real homemade from a real Italian owner. The place with its terrace is also very unique and gives a nice atmosphere for dining and wine drinking. My fiancée who is Italian was really happy that he was able to enjoy such a good pasta in Africa :-).

The Gadea Garden Restaurant is a must if you are staying in the Jambiani/Paje area! It offers a good choice of traditional Italian dishes plus some local ones and great seafood. Wide variety of drinks on the menu too, including fab cocktails and Italian wines. The service is great and the ambiance is lovely. Good value for money considering the quality of the food/drinks. Recommended !

A really lovely place just behind the beach. The staff welcome you warmly, the food is tasteful and fresh. The restaurent owner makes sure that everything is going well for you. Cocktails are made with fresh fruits and are delicious. Prices are raisonnable considering the quality of the meal. We came two nights in a row. You should try it.

Nice restaurant just opened, a few steps from the beach and with a beautiful cozy terrace. The pleasant breeze accompanies and the elegant and well-kept environment creates a very pleasant relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very nice and smiling. The menu offered is varied and the dishes prepared at the moment are excellent! Do not miss the ravioli with lobster filling with saffron salsa, really exceptional !!!! The fresh fish dishes, especially the crab and the really good desserts !!! The owners are two very nice people. It is really worth it!! It is really worth it !!!
