Tranquility at its best

I went on the roof terrace with my friend for a drink, small bites and a talk. I loved everything about the place, the setting, the design, the service, the privacy, the breathtaking view of the harbor and the city downtown. One can sit inside in air-conditioned hall or outside in a pleasant... read more

I always go there for business lunch and dinner. It is a quiet place and classy. Food is always excellent especially cakes are too yummy!

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).

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
