Located by the ocean, with salty fresh breeze pouring into the restaurant at all times The Fishmonger is one of Tanzania's best kept secrets. For all those who love seafood and especially prawns/shrimp this is the place to visit. Their 1KG share prawns are an absolute delight to devour and can sometimes be handled by just one diner instead of... More

However, it was an excellent choice as the fish was fresh, moist and succulent and the chips well cooked. The atmosphere was... More

Great food right in the middle of the Sea Cliff village. Took a while for food to arrive though but when it did, was worth the wait.
