Absolutely perfect! The dining room is outstanding. Had amazing dinner and humongous breakfast. Great service. Wonderful sleep.

Loved particularly the setup, the very attentive and kind service but the food, though of very good quality and presentation cannot be called fine cuisine and would have been more convenient for a brasserie type of place; a Caesar salad and a lamb knuckle are not what l consider as fine cuisine. Unfortunately the more refined dishes were not available, which l personally cannot admit. What is on the menu should always be available, particularly that on that specific night the place was far to be packed. Anyway had a good time.

I had heard about this place but assumed it would be expensive so never bothered to go. Now that I am leaving Arusha I have discovered this place and luckily not too late! I have visited 3 times in the past month and will be back again! Professional service, nice setting, peaceful location and good quality food. Highly recommend the lamb shank. Duck with lentils also good. Meal portions are large and I would struggle to have the bread, soup, entrée and a main course. 1 entrée shared between 3, and a main each seemed to do it for us.

This used to be a favourite for some delicious meals in particular the sunday brunch. Desserts were not that great but entree and main very rich and quality. Quiet pricey for Arusha but a great steak and wine selection.

We enjoyed our final lunch with our guide and driver, after our photo safari. Very good food, and we dined outdoors in the garden-like yard. Service was prompt and courteous. I'd look for this place again, on my next trip to Arusha.
