Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here for dinner and surprisingly had the entire restaurant to ourselves. They weren't worried about it and provided amazing service. Mrisho is professional and courteous and delivered a wonderful experience. We chose one of each of the fixed menus and loved everything that...was served. The fish and seafood were fresh and the presentation of each dish was beautiful. It is a lovely place and highly recommended for a excellent meal and romantic atmosphere.

A lovely meal with atmosphere We were two couples out for dinner, this place was recommended by some our friends Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had italian pasta paccheri with crab sauce and grilled lobster. I would enjoy more with the mango ice cream. We...spent a lovely evening out right by the Ocean. The Blue Restaurant also stands as a testament to the fact that great food need not always leave your wallet feeling lighter. The price points of the meals are fair, ensuring that the enjoyable dining experience remains accessible, thus reinforcing the value for money.
