Dulce café used to be one of my favourite places to eat in Dar. Not because of anything extraordinary but simply because of the fact that it was fairly cheap while portions were huge. Great place just to sit and relax. However, now the restaurant has apparently changed name and owners. Prices have... read more

Maybe more the sort of place for expats living in Dar than for travellers, this place - despite its pretty boring interior and setting - has cheap(ish) and delicious fresh food, and their salads are really nice and fresh. Their pasta portions are gigantic, leaving enough for next day's lunch. Have tried a variety of their food and everything came... More

Nothing to complain here. Very humble and service oriented staff. This is what makes me to visit them over and over again. Very co-operative not just the reason I visit them often. They offer the same gesture to all who enter the hotel. I love the food here. The service is far above excellent. Kids are handled very well with... More

The nicest thing about Dulce is the space between the tables - one does not feel choked by others or have to listen in on conversations at the next table. The decor and ambience is also very nice. It is quiet restaurant, the kind of place you can have a meal as you read a book. The food is good.... More

Meeting friends at Dulce is always great. From the moment you enter till the time you leave, there is always someone at your beck and call. There is always someone at the door to greet and lead you to a table. Once you are seated the menu is given. The server will be standing nearby discreetly to get your order... More

nice place to sit for a couple quite dinner, or even business meeting, nice intimate atmosphere, food arriving fairly quick and well cooked. most of the dishes are done well, BUT NOT ALL (wouldn't go for the chicken schnitzel if you know what's good for you). prices are slightly on the high side, but all in all, not disappointing, definitely...

Based on reviews here, we went with high expectations. And have to say, that it filled all expectations. Inside ambient was pleasant, though lack of nice view due to location is the fact (restaurant is in old Karibu hotel building at Morogoro stores). But the service! Wou! We were attended in time, served in time , all fresh and "complicated... More
