I had breakfast here every morning, having stayed at Sea Cliff for work. It's a standard continental breakfast but it's a great outdoor location on the Peninsula!

Good ambiance, good food, good service, good crowd. You cannot ask for a better deal. Compared to the rest of the city, this place is the most expensive but worth it.

It's a beautiful place with a beautiful view and vibe too. I didn't have anything to eat there but rather cocktails and they were not that great, there was just too much sugar or syrup in them. They can try to improve that a bit. Otherwise service from the Waiter was fine.

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.

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....
