The restaurant sits in a beautiful garden. It has a lovely atmosphere and great food. The pizza is especially good! We came back to this restaurant several times during our stay in Arusha, both for the food and the environment.

My family had a lovely dining experience at the Blue Heron. The pizza, wine and beer were superb. We enjoyed the ambiance of having a fantastic lunch in a garden setting. The server was friendly and provided excellent service.

After lunch we shopped at the gift shop. We purchased beautiful, one of a kind souvenir gifts for family and friends.

We highly recommend the Blue Heron. It’s an experience you will never forget.

We came here for dinner after a week of safari. We had great pizza, cooked in their pizza oven in the garden. Lots of tables, pleasant surroundings. Nice craft shop on site.

Helpfully organised a taxi for us to get back to our hotel.

The Blue Heron is one of the best restaurants in Arusha. It is situated a little outside of the main city centre (10 mins walking) so is quite quiet and peaceful compared with other parts.
I went for lunch with my family. We all ordered the pizzas which were very nice. The staff were also very helpful and allowed my sister to re-order for free when she realised she had order a pizza with a topping she did not like.
If you are ever in Arusha, would certainly recommend.
A pizza will cost about 15,000 Tanzanian Shillings - around 6.50USD at the time of writing.
They serve typical western cuisine.
