Excellent seaview veranda style restaurant in a relaxing environment. Here you can taste western style food with a local twist. I visited this place twice in a week and tasted the lobster entree, red snapper entree, goat meat dish and the steak. All cooked very well. Side salad was abundant and very fresh. French fries could be a bit more crispy. House wine was okay and the beers were cold. It helps that the restaurant is in the expatriate quarter where you are not harassed and can enjoy your evening.

I have to confess that I had high hopes for this place and schlepped 20 minutes out of town to get to it.

The food was average, the wine average and the service average.

Hotel looked nice though.

Dear Sir or Madam,
thank you very much for your feedback - we appreciate any honest and constructive feedback.
I would have been nice if you would have shared with us real details of exactly what was "quite average" because the way you write is very broad and does not allow us to look into any specific details as we always strive to improve wherever possible. Fortunately the vast majority of our average 30 to 40 diner a day enjoy our offering, setting, service and food.
Kind regards

The Ngalawa Seafront in the Coral Beach Best Western Hotel in Dar es Salaam, United Republic of Tanzania is the best restaurant in Dar es Salaam. A Business Associate and I have spent three weeks in Dar es Salaam and have eaten at the Ngalawa Seafront at least 4 times and every time the experience has been perfect. The food is great, the wine is great and the service has been exceptional each time. The view of the sea is also a great plus. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

A perfect spot for a dinner! The food is really tasty, staff is great, good varieties on the meny and not to pricy. The restaurant is located right next to the waterfront and is very suitable for romantic dinner, but also for hanging out with friends.
I will absolutely go there the next time in Dar es Salaam.
