A little overpriced for Tanzanian standards but I wasn´t let down. Try the seafood platter, it is beautifully seasoned and presented.

Wonderful fish dinner in an open air restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean. Prices are reasonable and the overall experience is a good value.

The view from karambezi is spectacular. The service is ok. The selection of wines is pretty poor but the food is decent. Their pizzas are pretty good. I would only recommend this place for an afternoon drink.

This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch overlooking the bay. Absolutely loved the vibe of the place. The chocolate milkshake was excellent, as was their chilli avocado starter. The veg lasagne was alright.

Description
For more than 15 years the Karambezi Cafe has been serving the East African coast with fine seafood and continental dishes. Travel to Dar es Salaam and one of our thousands of friends will say "You have to go to the Karambezi". Our restaurant evolves and changes daily and through time. Come for a luxurious buffet breakfast from 6 am daily to a cocktail served whilst you overlook the Indian Ocean and dine on an Admirals Platter. Karambezi Cafe....Come Home....
