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.

Sea view, sand beneath your toes, swings, open space, great location, great view. Had a Wholefish and Chicken wraps, both tasted great, including the fries, looked great and the service was really friendly. Food came in quite quickly, especially considering it was Jambiani. Prices were definitely reasonable (22k TZS for the fish) Only downside is that smokers are allowed to smoke in there, which can get quite annoying

A great place with delicious food and tasty cocktails. Try a shot of Tanzanian Konyagi (gin) with Tabasco 😂 We had such a great time here with the welcoming staff, especially Muna was very helpful. Play some games, dance on the bar or go for a swim. Super fun place to be with good prices and tasty food! We will definitely come back.

We stayed in a bungalow for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it. The view is great and the place is quiet and cosy. Food is good too (we had pizza marinara and a small mango&avocado salad) and they have beers, wine and cocktail. Count 18000 for a pizza and 7000 for a beer. They also have very friendly Masai staff.

BAD EXPERIENCE. I ordered a small dish "Fried Calamari in Pepper lime crust with Pinapple sauce" I received 4 (!!!)little breaded fried rings, no pepper,no lime and just with some mashed pinapple without any additional taste, you can't even call it a sauce! No decoration, poor presentation. Bad taste and far too small for 12.000 TZS (about 5,50 USD). One waiter promised to do something for me but instead after waiting a while an other presented the bill without any excuse. And nobody wanted to speak with me anymore. Nice place but very unprofessional and a tourist trap.

Hello Hana Yes I agree this is not as per our standard. I however was horrified at how you handled the situation at our restaurant and when faced with threats and defermation whilst we were trying to rectify your dish this will not be tolerated towards our staff. As per every restaurant there will be mishaps but to be rude and unkind to staff is not acceptable in any industry or in any situation. As per the tourist trap comment I have hundreds of other comments and customers who would disagree but I will let our reviews, pictures and comments speak for themselves.

The bill for two passion fruit juices and one bottle of water (big) was 21.000 tzs (10 $ is 25.000 tzs). I gave the waiter 20$ and said that he can give me back 10$ (left him almost 2$). After a while a waiter came and asked if he could return the rest in tzs, and I said OK, he came with 10.000 tzs ( 4 $), I was surprised and I told him that 10$ is 25.000 tzs after what he left and came back again to say that manager said they have very low rate for dollars $ 😁. I asked my 20$ back and gave him exact amount for the bill. So be careful, it's fine that one passion fruit juice costs 4 $ but it's not fine when they try to scam you.

Thank you for your response and giving us your experience. We sincerely apologise for the mix up. We have spoken to the staff member and dealt with your issue promptly. There are 4 exchange rates on the island; 1. Online ( not available at any facility on the island) 3. Bereau de change and banks ( changes daily and currently is 2550) 3. Village (2300) 4. Hotels and lodges (2400 - and the reason is because we need to incorporate travel.costs to Stonetown and bank changes) But we never try to scam.our guests, if anything we try to make sure our guests needs aretaken care of. Even to the point of buying; cigarettes, mosquito cream, Ohio Vera, shoes etc

As I walked into this restaurant with a hope for a good food and good people like I've read about,my hopes were crushed. I ordered a chicken cheeseburger and meat was more of a gum than a chicken. Potatos were undercooked and when I reached for a tomato sauce to spice it up,I realized it was staying for too long and was expired. Their public bathroom is smelly,full of ants and toilet paper nowhere in the sight. I had to correct waiter 2 times as he brought the wrong drinks. I noticed that for the past week there is very little people coming there. I am aware of low seasons but other restaurants always have some people. Definitely wrong choice. I would rather recommend Casa del Mar,New Teddy on the Beach or The Loop. Amazing people and food.

We spent almost 2 weeks at Garden Beach bungalows and we didn’t want to return to our normal life! Vanessa and Mark were always friendly and willing to help. We spent nights chatting and having drinks at the bar, it was really warm and friendly company. Food was delicious, always fresh and many varieties. Menu prices are a bit lower comparing to the bars and restaurants around. Generally we were happy and satisfied with everything, thank you very much!

Amazing bar & restaurant.. the owners & staff were extremely welcoming and friendly (our favourites were Muna & Francis). We spent our Saturday evening here & had an incredibly fun night! The food, band & atmosphere of the place is top shelf & I would recommend Lost Soles to anyone visiting Jambiani!

Family time. We visited Lost Soles 4 times during our 10 day stay in Zanzibar. Amazing location right on the beach with good service and great food. We enjoyed the pizza’s, the whole fish was amazing and daughter said that the stir fried rice is the best she has ever had. A must if you are in Jambiani.

Wonderful place (right on the beach), great pizzas and tasty calamari. Good drinks, but what's best is very friendly staff. And if you can fill the special bucket with rubbish collected on the beach they give you a free soft drink or ice cream. Our top place in Jambiani and one of the best in whole Zanzibar.

Such a great spot. Gorgeous views of Jambiani beach. Food was amazing and drinks were great. The owners were so nice and accommodating. They let us bring our bean bags down onto the beach and made a fire for us, gave us free pitchers and organised live music!

We found this little gem while walking along Jambiani Beach. We went in for snacks and a drink. It was so lovely listening to music with our feet in the sand looking out over the beautiful ocean. Hearing the South African accents also made us feel right at home! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Friendly and pleasant staff. We certainly recommend Lost Soles to anyone passing by. Thank you!

A wonderful restaurant/bar right on the beach with a very chill and relaxing atmosphere. The food is delicious and the cocktails are handcrafted almost to perfection. The real gems are the staff. They will welcome you and make you feel at home. I especially appreciate Shikoro, the manager Bakardi, Francis, and Salum for making my visits here extra special. I will return again and again.

My visit to Lost Soles was absolutely first-class! The service was extremely friendly and attentive. The food exceeded my expectations—both the pizza and the mango salad were very flavorful and of good quality. I can highly recommend Lost Soles for a thoroughly enjoyable culinary experience. Keep up the great work!
