A great place to chill and while away a few relaxing hours beside the beautiful Indian Ocean, a mile away from the hustle and bustle of busy Dar. If time is of no essence, then the service will suit as it is a relaxed pace, but why would you want to rushed in a place like this!. The food is good and worth the wait especially the Al-Pollo Pizza which I had on both my first and second visit where I also had a really nice Ceaser Salad and in my opinion is good value for money.
Take no notice of the negative reviews as it is truly worth a visit, only wish I could have stayed long enough to have experienced the beautiful sunset.

This is a tourist restaurant that sits in the ocean. It has great views of the ocean but there is little more to it. I went there for lunch, it was pricey compared to other restaurants. The service was ok and food was ok but just didn't wow me. Also got annoyed by flies. I'd recommend this for the views and perhaps if you were after a more touristy location.

Although I can't promise that trying to get their attention in Kiswahili will help you get faster service. Maybe it's part of the laid-back vibe (ambiance is good), but plan to take your time. Pizzas looked pretty good (but not as good as at Zuane). My "tiger prawns" was really just mediocre scampi, but the fish curry was a better bet. Typical beer selection, typical cocktail offerings.

Their food is very good and service is also good.
Try the Red Snapper Fillet, and their Beef Soup!!!
Only thing is when you order a pizza, be prepared to wait 1hour for it!!
