Food is good, service is attentive and the location is easy to get to when in Arusha. The salads are "safe" (which is not always the case in the Arusha area). Sit outside and enjoy the cool breezes.

We had read the tripadvisor reviews that all raved about the food and our expectations were high. Maybe it was because we were the only ones there and the owners did not appear to be around then, but the dinner menu and food was mediocre at best...spinach quiche with way too much tough crust, beef stroganoff that needed flavoring, stale...

This is a wonderful little place to stay. I will go back if this opportunity comes. It's quiet, safe,clean and comfortable. The staff is awesome and friendly. The food is enjoyable. Still only a walk away from Arusha city. Keep up the good work.

The food isn't flashy or tries too hard to be something it isn't. They use local quality ingredients, solid well thought out recipes, cooked well and its lovely. Served with a smile.
