The Rock is one of Tanzania's unique restaurants. It is built into a rock, just off Michanwai Pingwe beach in the Indian Ocean! Thus, making a meal here one for the bucket list. With such a gorgeous setting, the food does its best to match and not disappoint. The price tag on menu items is steep, but if you have the budget book ahead to avoid not getting a table.

This is a super cool spot. A restaurant built on a rock outcropping in the tidal zone, so as the tide comes in, you dine on a little exclusive island. The food here is very expensive, but also quite good. Try the gnocchi with vanilla. You can also just show-up for drinks. It is about 25 minutes north of Paje.

The Rock is really unique! The restaurant is located in the middle of the sea on a stone - hence the name - and can only be reached by boat at high tide. At low tide, on the other hand, you can walk over knee-high water. The prices in the restaurant are quite upscale and the food is not necessarily outstanding, so it is enough to look at the restaurant from the outside or just to run through.
