I am always disappointed when a sea food dish comes with sand in it. In this restaurant I had fettuccine with lobster and clams and every bite I chewed on sand. I grew up in Taiwan so I know very well that it could be avoided. However, the homemade pasta was absolutely delicious. I had a few bites of my... More

The setting is nice, right by the ocean (plenty of mosquitos, though) . Menu consists of some simple seafood dishes, like most touristy places in Dar, and pizza. The management prides itself to serve genuine Italian food, but pizzas are average tourist restaurant quality, sefood is just about okay. Prices were hiked up by 20% while we were there.

I visited the restaurant at the Mediterraneo Hotel in Dar es Salaam for dinner with some business colleagues. It is located about 15km outside Dar es Salaam on Kawe Beach. The restaurant faces the Indian Ocean and if you wish to see a fantastic sunset, you should get to the restaurant about half an hour before the sun goes down... More

The view is just to die for. I love the sand on the floor where the lounge seating is, nothing better than sand between your toes while enjoying a cold drink by the beach. The kids went off to the beach to play while we waited for food, which is fantastic! The staff, they were amazingly patient with my kids.... More

One of the most beautiful spots in Dar es Salaam we visited. Not only that, but the service and food were excellent. Unique designs, decorations, and setting. Make sure to allow time before or after your meal to relax in the lounge chairs overlooking the gorgeous views of the Indian Ocean.

...but the food is mediocre and the service is worse than terrible. This is something they need to work on, but the view is what you come for.
