Food and fun at it's finest. I have been to Karambezi a couple of times and was more than pleased each time. The wait staff is well trained, courteous, helpful with menu selections and eager to serve. The presentation is beautiful. Food was delicious and decadent, really top notch for both meals. My cappuccino even had a cute "4u" message... More

Karambezi Cafe has one of the best views of the Indian Ocean, one can sit and get lost in the views...BUT they really need to step up their food game especially the dessert part, the fries were palatable...That's all I will say about the food. The thing is....Some of us absolutely love desserts and can tell if something has been... More

Staff were efficient and friendly, and the place had a very nice atmosphere about it. I got the kingfish, which unfortunately didn't meet expectations. The cutlets were pretty dry and full of bones. I definitely won't be ordering this dish next time. Overall too dry. Apart from that, I enjoyed. The efficient staff made up for the bad meal choice

This is one of my favorite dining areas! Karambezi is always bustling and busy. If you want a place with ambiance, Karambezi offers it on a platter. Afternoons are usually more quieter than in the night. Be careful especially during the high season, you might not find a table and you will have to wait for one. (It is worth... More

Renovated and upgraded since I was last there, this restaurant sits on a cliff overlooking the Ocean making it a wonderful place to enjoy freshly cooked seafood. My companion and I shared the seafood platter which was generous and very good. We had to resort to a doggy bag. Our table next to the cliff edge gave us a beautiful... More

As we stayed almost a month at Seacliff hotel we had a lot of opportunities to try out the menu of Karambezi Café. The food is good and café is cosy, especially in the evenings when you sit on the terrace. They have a great seaview, can be very romantic :-) See also my review on: http://azebrasdream.com/2014/03/03/room-service/

We went to Karambezi Café for dinner to celebrate my young sister's birthday. All I had in mind was a beautiful dinner and a dessert to mark her big day... What the staff at Karambezi Cafe did led by Luckson was simply amazing. Our average evening turned up to be a super evening... Thank you so much for going out... More

We had the opportunity to visit this restaurant for dinner and lunch. The service is excellent and the white snapper for dinner is outstanding. Seating a lunch can provide an awesome view of the cliffs and sea. Food is great and I would suggest you try the desert menu.
