The restaurant is directly at the beach and therefore has an incredible view at the sea. The food is good but the prices are medium to high The waiters can be a bit intrusive and sometimes really annoying especially if they ran out of a specific kind of food as we finished our complete meal until they brought us the...

Great view right on the water at the bustling Slipway. Food is fine, a little pricey, but that's what you should expect when eating at the trendy spot on Msasani Peninsula. It's an expat haven. There is live music in the evenings. Really great spot for sunset drinks or bites.

This place is amazing: the sea in front of you, the hut roofs over your head, and a very mixed crowd of famillies, couples, friends... nice melting pot. The food is properly done but a bit missing of attention : the goat was far too cooked and thus a bit too dry! pity! Otherwise it is worth to try this... More

We had a great lunch here. Prices are a bit high, but the atmosphere is nice. Also, it's nice to see the local fishermen doing their work.

It is not only the eclectic menu with its western and local food selection which brought me here several times... It is also the feeling of being really welcome and the enchanting location which is underlined by perfectly selected music varying according to the time and mood of the day! The food is excellent at fair prices and the service... More

Came in with a group of friends for Lunch, & I have to say it is worth it. The food is amazing most favourable the seafood section. Oh, don't forget to try the Brownie with Ice Cream as a treat.

During our stay in Dar we visited the Waterfront a couple of times. The terrace has a spacious set up with solid comfortable wooden furniture. You can especially enjoy the Waterfront when arriving before sunset when sitting facing the water. The view is great and the holiday feeling is complete when you watch the sky turn red as the sun...

Location is absolutely top. At the sea, with a great view. Fantastic place for a sundowner. And that is what we used it for during our time in Dar. For the food one could consider other places in Dar. Service might get some attention. In summary: use it for a sundowner drink and move somewhere else for the food.
