Proper local food, freshly prepared. The king fish with coconut sauce and rice was just amazing. The fresh juice, was a combination of three fruits that blended perfectly together The restaurant is located just 50 meters from the beach, so do try it.

We stayed in Nungwi for 7 days and were at several restaurants but Saturn is the one with the most friendly waiters and the best food too! Highly recommended!

Saturn clearly is a small and friendly family run business in Nungwi just behind the beach, therefore just a tiny bit more off the beaten track than beachfront restaurants. They cook a decent swahili meal and service is very pleasant, seating comfortable. Prices are low.
