Reviewed April 6, 2012

Loved the Tuna Steak! Prices were a bit high and service not the timeliest, but the food was good.

“romantic oceanfront restaurant with no flavor”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

This romantic oceanfront restaurant appears to be popular with tourists. The outdoor candlelight seating is charming at night even when the it is too dark to see the ocean. There are restaurant is surrounded by a number of souvenir shops, too. I requested a BBQ chicken pizza which looked great. However, the pizza had absolutely no flavor. Even salt and red pepper could not bring it to life. So, maybe you will have better luck with a dish such as Tanzanian BBQ goat with rice. The cold drinks and relaxing ambience saved my evening. The prices might be twice as high as international restaurants that are not on the oceanfront, but you probably will want to visit this place one time if you are visiting Dar es Salaam and are looking for a moderately price restaurant.

“Favourite spot in Dar, service could be much better”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

I love the spot of the Waterfront and am a frequent customer. I really regret the service though and feel for the manager who is working hard to improve this. Food is not so bad.
