A very pleasant place to sit with friends but do not go there for the service or the quality of food. It could be possible to match the ambiance with good food and efficient service but mediocre is the best way to describe this restaurant. A great pity as so many other restaurants in Dar achieve this so much better.

It's funny the last review was from 2013. Probably because this place is always so packed that it doesn't need a review. However, if u r a visitor in Dar and u need a tip on where to eat after a long safari, well, don't miss Zuane, even if u r not a pizza or Italian dishes fan. It would... More

Zuane is probably one of the most evocative restaurants in Dar. Unfortunately the food is far from that level, The beef which was ordered medium was served very rare. The tuna was rather tasteless and the pork did not deserve a place on on the menu. The vegetables which were highly recommended, were all very tough. But the beer tastes... More

Despite the title, I still come over for lunch about 3 times a month (possibly that says more about the competition in Dar), and while service is usually good, the quality varies from excellent to very poor, be it the pizza or the main course. Overall, it seems to depend on who is cooking that evening. The setting is quite... More

After being recommended this restaurant time and time again by friends, we finally managed to visit it not so long ago. The food was incredible and the portions very large! The steak was cooked to perfection and the caprese salad with mango twist was sensational. I highly recommend this place to all!

I have been here only 5 weeks and I've been to this restaurant 3 times. I've had very odd pizza combinations based on my cravings and all combos have been great - delicious - cabbage in the sauce was fantastic. Odd looking beef sausage - tasty. Eggplant Parmesan - really good and flavorful, rich. I am picky about restaurants and... More

The venue is really beautiful and really relaxing. The house red wine was nice, but i felt really annoyed that it was served in a teeny tiny glass. And we ordered two pizzas and they both were quite bad actually. Still, when I left I felt relaxed, there was space for my daughter to play, and in general it was... More
