Great place for weekend dinner or especially casual lunches. Outdoor ambiance with good ocean view. Good food and excellent customer service. Great even for casual/friendly drinks with great choices at the Bar. Definitely a must for business lunch.

After fifteen days walked in Tanzania, this place is the must. I eat a good fish but with a lot of sauce.

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....
