Had an excellent evening with three business colleagues. The service was prompt and efficient. The manager came and chatted to our table and was the perfect host quality of the food was good. Highly recommended

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was my second time here and I still enjoyed the atmosphere at this place. There is also an option for a boat ride if you like.

“A kitchen, away from my home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Nothing i can say here will make you understand the absolute peace, tranquility and pure at home feeling i get when i am here. So let me start by saying this. I am sitting here writing this review. Awesome music, currently, The Doors, i am enjoying my cup of coffee sitting at the boat converted into a table. I have been coming here for just over a month, and already the staff know me by first name. Just the way i like it. So, my abvice to you, get here, get here fast! Dont put it off, find your favorite table overlooking the ocean. Miriam, the hostess, and by far my favorite, Shadrack, one of the waiters will make your day. They open at 11:00 am so try not to rush, but if you are a little early, and friendly, they may just let you in to sit and wait for them to officially open. My favorite time is just after work between 18:00 and 19:00, my table is booked everyday. My visits have been friends, famiy, couples business, solo. Hope you enjoy. Gods love to you all. Mark. If you have questions invite me on facebook mark luke jacobs

“Great food with a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This restaraunt has amazing food. They are some of the quicker service I had while in Dar. I tried a couple different plates but went back to have the fillets a couple times. If you're looking for a place to eat in the Slipway area this is the place to go.
