“Amazing food, lovely ambience, prompt service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Loved everything about this place - absolutely no criticisms. From the decor to the service to the food absolutey lovely. I had the best fish and my husband had the crab filled pasta - both were divine. the only thing that could be improved upon could be the selection of music - it didnt fit the mood of the space.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We have been in Tanzania for 3 weeks now and Ocean is the best restaurant so far. Delicious food, European service, very welcoming manager and attentive staff.

“Incredible food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

The restaurant was 10 mins away from where we were staying (Ndame Beach Lodge), the food was incredible! I had the coral fish with chips and the most amazingggg salad, I am not a great sea-food lover but there was nothing fishy about this meal! The staff were very attentive, and the food came out relatively quickly considering there were 9 other orders from my table. The desert however wasn't fantastic, it was like a chocolate and hazelnut ice-cream but it was rock solid so we couldn't even eat it :(

Dear SaraBanara,

First of all, thank you so much for your review. We really appreciate your comments.

Secondly, sorry for the delay in replying to you! Sadly I"m a little technologically challenged but I'm getting there with Trip Advisor's help!

Now dessert! It seems you ordered the Dolce Torinese, which is an Italian chocolate biscuit cake and so the chocolate and nut combo should be really nice and dense. However...... no excuses, because it should definitely NOT have been too hard to eat.

We know from long experience that little things mean a lot so please accept our apologies for the blip. You were very gracious in your overall comments.

Hugh
