The food here is amazing and when there arent many people, the service is really quick. The blueberry cheese cake is my favourite here, with a latté complementing the sunset view is something to experience.

Karambezi Cafe is a default location for visitors and travelers to Dar es Salaam because of the stunning views at the tip of the Masaki Peninsula. I often take guests for drinks and coffee when they visit. I enjoy Friday nights at Karambezi -- although they can get crowded -- when a cover band often plays live music. Although my... More

The restaurant serves fresh and healthy foods. The soft music and sometimes with live band makes more entertaining eating at karambezi. Unfortunately they close the kitchen at 10pm.

Great breakfast buffet with a view of the sea. Don't go when it's raining though as you are sure to get wet.

Had dinner here, as a guest was told platters are coming, and wow they were something special. Order them and eat the lobsters before anyone else grabs them. Amazing staff as well very attentive and wanted to make sure you were having a good time.

I visiter the Karambezi Cafe with 6 friends. It is at a good location on the beach, though at night you can't see that. The food was good - not outstanding. The restaurant is quite large and located in a complex, makes it a bit less romantic than it could be. I will try for lunch as well - to... More

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....
