The restaurant in cliff is called Karambazi, you will love it specially in the evening. Have a coffee or food. Live band will be playing songs. I was surprised to see that they were also singing India songs.

The Karembezi overlooks the bay and given its location it is nice and breezy and a very relaxed place to dine. The food is excellent with quite a wide range of dishes. It can be a bit out of the way if you are not living/lodging in the Oyster Bay area but it is worth the drive out as it... More

The place has a nice ambience over a cliff, the seafood is very good, the platter for 4 is very good it comes with a lot of fish, portions are a bit small when it comes to individual dishes. Service is very good.

Lovely new terrace area upstairs which has wonderful ocean views. The staff are friendly and always introduce themselves by name. I particularly like the avocado starter with lime chili dressing.

Thank deeom

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....
