“Cosmopolitan oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I had a business lunch at Karambezi Cafe and thought it was a great, upmarket venue. The outdoor area overlooking the sea really is beautiful and the food wasn't too flash but it was delicious. Our waitress was a delight and I can imagine it would be a great place to hang out in the evening.

“Beautiful Outlook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Karambezi, in the Seacliff Hotel has a beautiful outlook overlooking the Indian Ocean, protected by large glass windbreaks. there are always plenty of attentive staff and the food is usually good. The cafe looks East, so the best time to visit is morning/lunchtime as it misses out on the spectacular sunsets you get on the other side of the peninsula

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

When living in Dar as an expat, sometimes you miss a good steak or pasta. At Karambezi, you know for sure that your food will taste great, that the service will be attentive and friendly, and - very rare in Dar - that the food will be served within maximum 20 minutes, as compared to the usual 1,5 hours! The views are stunning and the wine is excellent.
