For more than 15 years the Karambezi Cafe has been serving the East African coast with fine seafood and continental dishes.

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....
