I come here every time I'm in Dar. The sunsets are to die for, normally you can find someone to chat with at the bar to pass the time, and the beer is ice cold. From a food perspective, it is definitely a tourist /...More

We sat on the very last table with ocean view. Unfortunately there was no proper lighting on this end of the area. We ordered a fish platter for two, although it was not exactly what the menu described it tasted really good. The calamaris were...More

Stunning the atmosphere and setting. The staff are friendly and efficient but the food takes forever to come out of the kitchen. The fish was overcooked and dry and the calamari and prawns were oily. Very disappointing.

Best time to visit and loose track of time is around 6pm, when the sun is about to go down and the soothing seabreeze picks up. The food is simple and tasty, and there is a good selection of seafood, contemproray and traditional swahili dishes....More

Wonderful views of bay and sunset, while eating great food from varied menu and drinking our last Tanzanian beer and wine before heading to airport. Spent couple of hours here with relaxed atmosphere and great service

The set up and view of this place is great, particularly around sunset. We came here after a full day on bongoyo island, for which the boat docks right next to the waterfront restaurant, so it was a great way to wind down with sundowners....More
