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....

“good restaurant in the sea cliff hotel”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

The food was quite good, I recommend the nicoise salad and the pastas.They also have a very good selection of cakes and deserts which are delicious! The location is great, right by the sea so there is always a cool breeze in the evenings, which makes it vary pleasant to eat outside. My only complaint is that the service can be too slow... but it is Africa...

“Best Restaurant in Dar”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

This restaurant is by far the Best restaurant in dar specially when the selection is not so wide. Breathtaking ocean view is all around you, sometimes Hotel's Helicopter is parked in the Garden just outsiide the restaurant.

I tried ONLY seafood which was fantastic, nice wines, menu is not so crowded with items, but i would recommend that you go with the seafood platter for 2 or grilled Lobester.

Nice still limited choice of wine & so is the dessert, staff are very friendly, try saturday night, they have in this country a special tradition of a race called "Goat race" done only on Saturday, I saw this german Group they were dressed as if they were in a carnival, they looked so elegant, & the ambiance is so fantastic, do not MISS IT.

“Lovely seafood platter”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

I go here regularly for the seafood platter. Although it is one of the most expensive meals in the city, I still think quality is high enough to defend the price. The seafood is very well prepared, and it is a lot!
