“What a surprise in Dar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

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 order" ( To Tanzanian standards) was correct and all available. When asked what was everything served ( new food for us, which we did not know), he asked the chef to come to explain and teach us.
Staff was "hanging around" just perfect. Waiter taking the dishes when everyone is finished (not rushing to take plate out when the first one is scooping the last spoonsfulls) and even the " are you happy with food/ is all ok" quality checker timed his arrival as such, that he did not disturb us. Small details, which makes us for sure to come again!

“Excellent - Best Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

good restaurant, location is good - ambiance is great, very good boutique hotel. had gone for dinner with family and friends, had ordered the Sirloin Steak - (very well done) :) - trust me that was the best steak ive ever had in DSM - had tried Spurs Steak House which is very good, have tried Karambezi - Steak is very good, others as well - but nothing compared to what i had at Dulce. it was great. service could be better - we were getting different waiters all the time - i assume with time they will improve. menu is great. will definitely go and have STEAK again. :)

“LA DULCE VITA!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have visited Dulce several times for different occasions. I could be at Dulce everyday. Love the food - the portions are big enough for two people to share, the quality is fresh, good and well prepared. |The staff are pleasant and service oriented. The prices are fair enough considering the quality and portion of the food. The Coffees and Cold Drinks are good. Ambience is nice - Love the color combination.

“Good Food, Good Variety”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

Breakfast is just average, but the lunch and dinner menu offers a wide variety of foods at what I would consider a reasonable price for being a hotel restaurant.
