I came here last month with a group of friends. Staff were accommodating and very friendly. They catered to our every need. We found both food and wine were delicious. The italian food was very tasty.

“Great location mediocre food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This place is beautifully located. It is the perfect venue for a romantic dinner as your are seated just a few feeds from the beach and can unobstructed admire the splendid scenery of moon reflecting in Indian Ocean and the lights of the Msasani peninsular in the background. However, the food is at best mediocre. Having tried a selection of the entrées I would say that the pizzas are the best choice. The waiters are absolutely friendly, but their attentiveness varies. At one of our visits several waiters were just observing passively in the background while my wife was struggling to pull out a heavy hardwood chair as she was carrying our small daughter on her arm. And finally a kind suggesting, if you do not have fresh bread, then don’t serve it. That would be much better that putting something that at best could be used for breadcrumbs on the table.

“Nice place to chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Its a nice place to just relax. Nestled on the beach front, you will be constantly be drawn to relax at the beach front, have drink and just take in the beautiful view. You could also take a dive in the warm indian ocean and or just watch the fellow visitors wind surfing from one island to another. If your looking for a place to relax with good food. This place is for you!

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We were staying in Dar and we got a taxi to go to Mediterraneo (taxi was not expensive). Although the atmosphere was nice and the place is on the beach, it is nothing special. I even found it over priced. The food is good but not traditional Tanzanian, neither the decoration.
