Ate here a couple of times. The local food was very good, the curries were amazing. Travelling with a large group of people this was always a good meeting point. The staff were great and happily moved tables to accomodate many people. Just remember your sunnies as there is quite a glare in the late afternoon, which otherwise is the... More

We walked around Slipway and shopped a little. Here was the place to relax and chill for half an hour, supposedly. I ended up sitting there for three hours, eating great seafood, drinking local beer, and enjoying the great view of sunset. Highly recommend it.

Ate here last night in Dar and didn't disappoint. It is easy to get to (Slipway a landmark with taxi drivers). Food very good, staff young and helpful, mixed drinks good and reasonable. Pizza exceptional. For a simple, carefree meal - this is an excellent choice.

One of the fine restaurant in town. Great for date, casual dinner/lunch even for business meetings won't really harm your feelings. Worthy every minute of your time. 🤔

Food above average but not amazing. A great location for a drink and watch the world float by. Attracts a youngish crowd and lots of expats.
