Peace at the Waterfront

The Waterfront Restaurant is on Slipway at Dar. It's located facing the bay with a top class mall to back it up. The restaurant faces the bay and at night the light of the city look like gems.

Their food is not comparable to their price, staff is of mediocre at best quality. One of the biggest problems is that the seaside stench will often carry in to the restaurant.

Great view and food. The restaurant is next to several stores and is located next to the water. Will definitely return again.

Great cocktails, great pizzas and even better sunset. Can be a bit touristy and prices on the high side, but always a winner in location and vibe.

A place to return to , time after time -I 've been here several times as the sun has been setiing. Never disapoints, location, atmosphere and the food. Try the seafood platter next time -prawns and calamari in tempura, skewers of tuna , with a light salad -just right and only 19,000 Tsh.

I had a light lunch with a friend at this restaurant. The setting was just gorgeous. We sat at a table right by the water so we could look right over at the sand and the ocean. The water was just beautiful and clear and we could see dhow (boats) going by. We weren't bothered by flies (which were a... More

A group affair. Drinks & a quick bite after a day on the island. The views are outstanding - excellent ambience but wait - did I see a camel go by? Service is terrible. It takes longer to get the bill than to get a drink! The portion sizes are huge - when they eventually arrive. Ask for mixes in... More

The Waterfront is great for a casual / low key drink to watch the sunset. Their mojito's are really good! Service needs a lot of help and so does the food. But the view...is worth it!

My wife and I visited for appetizers, drinks, and dessert at sunset. It was a delightful experience. If in Dar, this is worth a try. My wife and I enjoyed the fresh breeze and relaxed ambiance. However, I believe several patrons, in their late twenties, were enjoying the restaurant as a precursor to a visit to the nightclub just around... More
