A dining with a great view of the Indian Ocean, food is really good (Vegetarian) and the staff is pretty friendlier, a bit higher on the expense side but it can nullified with its location and quality

My wife and I recently enjoyed 2 lunch dates at the Alcove Restaurant in Haidery Plaza, Dar es Salaam. The ambience hits one immediately as you step out of the Dar heat into an air conditioned restaurant. The tables are expertly laid and the waiters/waitresses...More

Slow yet worth the wait. Alcove have maintained their standards over the years, taste of each dish comes with a twist yet leaves your mouth watered! I'd would also recommend Alcove in city Haidery plaza

This restaurant is our choice whenever we cannot make up our minds on where to go as a family. We think they might have the best butter chicken in all of Dar!

Food is good....sizzling prawns, chicken, chicken madras, naan all very tasty. I'm knocking one star off for the service. It's a bit slow and it gets a bit annoying having to keep on reminding them about drinks orders. Definitely worth a visit on the whole.
