A true Hidden Gem!

A hidden restaurant that doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you step inside the gates, this beautiful soft and 'romantic' ambience awaits you!!

Really don't understand the high rating of this place! Yes the venue is great, it's one of those oases in Dar, and the hostest is very sweet and friendly. However, the food is of roadhouse standard! Chewy, tasteless stake with weak sauce and simple sallad.

My partner and I went to this restaurant for a quiet evening meal, getting a bit bored with hotel food. We were so glad that we did. We both had starters followed by steak. Everything was cooked to perfection. The ambiance was excellent and the staff friendly yet professional. Will definitely visit again when I return next month

This was the first time I was at this restaurant and I will definitely go back! Both my husband and I had the steak, him with potatoes wedges , mine with mashed potatoes. Both were exceptional.The steak as tender as anything and the vegetables so fresh and cooked perfectly. There was so much food, neither of us could finish them... More

Its a really nice, quiet and pleasant garden with a fountain in the middle, cleverly separated so that you have your own little space. The bar and seating indoors is very cosy and ideal for a sunday afternoon laze. Food is average, the menu has potential but many little flaws in preparation results in less than great fare.

The place is truly amazing, among the best I have visited both in and out of dar es salaam. The food was exquisite to the point where it almost broke our hearts to find only three other customers there, I say almost because the waitresses tainted the night for us. The waiter was friendly enough but the three waitresses were... More

Excellent meal. Wide range of delicious mouth watering meals and the setting is really relaxing. The Irish coffee is amazing, but make sure that you don't want to go to sleep too soon afterwards.

I love this place: the ambiance, the food, the hostess and the waitstaff. They are so attentive and courteous. The food is great: I love the crab, but my favourite must eat is the Banoffee pie. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
