Group Bookings

During peak months (June, July, August, September, October, December 16th to 31st, January, and February), we accept groups of up to 12 people per sitting to ensure the best experience for our guests. Please note that only one group will be accommodated at a time during these months and will be served an a la carte menu.

In off-peak months (March, April, May, November, and December 1st to 15th), we welcome groups, but we may need to review or create a special group menu during this time. Again, only one group will be accommodated per sitting.

Tide Safety

High tides may result in challenging boat landings, leading to delays of up to 20-minutes. Safety is our top priority and our boat captain will make this call. Please note we never cancel bookings, but delays may occur during moments of our highest tides or unstable sea conditions.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Rock Restaurant Zanzibar for an unforgettable dining experience!
