This place has fluctuated in its approach and service. I have visited for drinks and dinner a few times since it opened. It seems that its expensive but average. It has great views from the upper port facing rooms.

The service was the best I have seen so far in Dar, friendly and knowledgeable. Nice and cozy at roof top with comfy seats that enable one enjoy the view of the sea and ferry bay. Dinner is lovely here with excellent sea food- I loved it!

The Buffet operates 24 hrs. You just mention a number of people you expect to host and time, they organize everything for you. And everything is perfect. i.e. Friendly welcome, cleanliness and great taste. You pay a bit more but it is worth.

Of all the restaurants I tried in Dar, this is by far the most upscale and probably the best in terms of food quality and service. The interior design is very nice (if you are looking for something kind of corporate and upscale) and the food is excellent (although it's quite expensive for something comparable back home). We had a... More

it's a nice hotel to go to if you prefer the finer things in life. It's nice for a drink in the evening too. Definitely not a place to go when you're on a budget, daring mid range travellers might manage by the bottomless pockets will be able to enjoy all the hotel has to offer

I visited Kempinski with friends, the ambiance is GREAT! The food can be mediocre, some really good...mostly mediocre, the pastries are good and really good another time...hence my average rating...When it comes to service, it's stellar!! It is very expensive...i guess we are paying for the ambiance?
