“Posh dining in Daresalaam”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

Good food, excellent service and nice atmosphere...
A nice place for a quiet meal in style. A little on the expensive side but worth it if you want to impress....

“lovely place for a special dinner”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

My family visited Calabash when they were in Ezulwini Valley in Swaziland 16 years ago and they were always great. Was a lovely surprise to see them in Dar when we moved here. Have heard that they are closing down this month tho.

“A firm favorite”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Calabash Café is a family favorite... Birthdays, anniversaries, romantic dinners, quiet time, and more are all enjoyed here. The owner and his family take the business seriously, as do the staff, and it shows. Every dish is an experience, every meal a delight, and though it's not the fanciest of locations, it serves its patrons just fine. I can't recommend one dish over another, they're all just delicious. Try it.. You won't be disappointed.

“Excellent food!”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Both the quality of food and the service are excellent. I stay here for quite a while and I do not get tired of the way seafood is prepared, fresh from the sea.
