“Over priced, over rated.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

Went on a third Saturday of the month as everyone said this was the time to go. It's al long way out of Dar, expensive to get it, expensive to drink. The food was average at best. Hadn't booked a sofa so nowhere to sit, stayed for a while but found the whole experience tiresome. There are plenty more overpriced and average establishments to be found nearer Dar city centre without the 45 minute taxi / bjaj ride each way.

“Everything was above my expectation.”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

Cosy atmosphere in this Italian restaurant. The woodwork of tables and chairs, frame and window are localy carpented in an original manner. Located right on the seaside this give you the feeling of beeing at the local fishmarket. Very romantic. The italian food was superb much better than many european restaurant. The service very stylish and dedicaded. The owners very nice and entertaining people. Certainly the best italian around. Highly recommended.

“GREAT PARTY THE 3rd week end of the month”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is the place to be every 3rd saturday of the month, during the week they are serving good food, but it is a bit far considering the heavy tanzanian traffic

“Great food!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

The food is delicious, it takes a while to get to your table but that's typical in Tanzania! Expect to spend 20-25000 shillings on your main dinner. Wonderful atmosphere as you are right on the beach. The half-moon parties are decent but very crowded.

“Beachside dining with style”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Enjoy great food with a beautiful setting. The interior design is very pleasant and the views won't let you down. Reasonable menu and food is good. Just plan time to get there because traffic is terrible.
