It is always my policy that I eat outside the Hotel every evening I am free. this Thursday evening after a busy day I took a taxi and the driver took me to this place. I like fish so I ordered sea food, served with chips! It was great! Service was good.

My friend's parents recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary here. It was an intimate dinner with close friends and they had invited us to the Alcove. It's a wonderfully located restaurant in Sea Cliff Hotel, one of the better known hotels in Dar. It's at the end of the road which houses most consulates and diplomatic high commissions, and the...

Halidery Plaza is an unlikely setting for this pleasant Indian restaurant on the second floor, but the outdoor rooftop terrace is a nice cool setting for an evening meal with nice views of the city. The selection of dishes is good and reasonably priced, though I sense they're used to diners with western tastes as I asked for my sauce... More

Though the food is generally good in Alcove, but I often suffer from indigestion after eating their food. I have come to this conclusion now that I should no longer eat there since I find their food often too rich. I am an Indian and usually enjoy light food (though I agree it is not typical of an Indian) and... More

Lovely place for a good business or family meal. Food is delicious. Service is quite efficient and polite. Supervision of staff is quite competent. Prices, though a bit on the higher side, still offer value for money. The restaurant's location by the sea, makes it a very relaxing experience for its clientele. All in all, a place that can be...

There are 2 Alcove restaurants in Dar - one in Sea Cliff and the other in Old Town. Both are reasonably good restaurants offering Indian and Indo-Chinese fare. The prices are a bit steep by Dar standards but portions are generous and food is tasty.

We went there last night and had a lovely time. Yes, the food, etc is more expensive - but you get such a beautiful view that you are really paying for the location. I found the food delicious and the service good. HOWEVER - please note that the address on Trip Advisor is wrong. It's in the Sea Cliff complex... More

It's nice place for family dine out. The food is good. Clean and good service. Might sound bit expensive. But you are paying for quality and tasty food. So, it doesn't matter.

I loved how good their Chinese cuisine were. The menu had quite a variety and recommendations by the waitress were good. It's really a top class restaurant and you can have insane of amount of food with cocktails for equivalent of 25GBP per person. It helps that it's located in the gorgeous Sea Cliff complex. As it is well known... More
