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....

“ood service, good food”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

The service was very good, portions more than sufficient, well presented and very tasty. Cannot fault much here, except maybe that it is a bit pricey...but well worth it

“great view, good service well managed !”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

apparently the best location restaurant in Dar, with beautiful panoramic view to the ocean and nice ambient atmosphere, definitely a great place to eat, sit, have a nice drink on the bar or just for nice coffee and cake.

prices are a bit high comparing to the portion of the dishes and not a large menu options, but all in all, very pleasant place to be.

“Cosmopolitan oasis”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

I had a business lunch at Karambezi Cafe and thought it was a great, upmarket venue. The outdoor area overlooking the sea really is beautiful and the food wasn't too flash but it was delicious. Our waitress was a delight and I can imagine it would be a great place to hang out in the evening.

“Beautiful Outlook”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The Karambezi, in the Seacliff Hotel has a beautiful outlook overlooking the Indian Ocean, protected by large glass windbreaks. there are always plenty of attentive staff and the food is usually good. The cafe looks East, so the best time to visit is morning/lunchtime as it misses out on the spectacular sunsets you get on the other side of the peninsula
