This is a good choice for some evenings when you don't have much on your mind. Some delicacies are really great. Service is ok

We had a friend's meeting with families at Alcove restaurant, a great variety of food being offered with a personal touch by the owner himself, situated in the happening place of the town. The rooftop view added to the great flavoured food. A must try in Dar.

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 well-primed to welcome their clients.
The service is first class and couldn't be more accommodating. These are of course the formalities.
The most important thing is the menu and the quality of the food, both being excellent. Food is both Indian and Chinese, both of which are expertly prepared and true to country tradition.
The Alcove is a haven of peace within the haven of peace that is Dar es Salaam.

We dined at the Alcove on a warm Sunday night. The restaurant is at the pool area of the hotel. The view is breathtaking of the ocean and the cliffs below. The waiters and manager were very friendly and accommodating. We had the chilli halloumi and garlic and chilli prawns as a starter. The portion was so big, we could only eat a quarter of our main course. The flavours of both the dishes was unbelievably delicious. Would definitely return, but with a bigger appetite! Was a bit pricey, but worth it.
