Firstly - grand location. right on the beach. lovely rustic wooden interiors - boat and kayak shaped sitting, with sand under your feet. peaceful ambience.

Secondly - wonderful authentic Italian food, especially the pizzas. We had ravioli, pasta, pizzas and tiramisu. I had mine sipping a Tangawizi and loved it. Try out the Amarula post your meal. Similar to Bailey's Irish Cream.

Thirdly - painfully slow service. This seems to be the case overall in Dar es Salam. You must reckon with atleast 45 minutes of endless wait till your order comes to the table. We had to pack the pizza which we had ordered the second time around as some of us had lost our appetite with this never ending wait. Not something anyone would relish especially on a laid back Sunday afternoon. Service definitely needs improvement, and fast!

I was having dinner there the other day. Very cosy settings, but the service is too poor. We had to ask for a waiter to come to our table! Also the food is too overpriced!

Mediterranoe Restaurant has a nice setting at the western shore of the Msasania Bay. The rustic marine interior creates an attractive atmosphere. They stick to a mediterranean cuisine and serves good pasta and fish dishes. But this does not help when one of the orders to a table of 4 was forgotten and served a long time after the others were finished. In addition we made an unfortunate desision to try out the steak; it was so bad that they would benefit by removing it from the menu.

The restaurant is situated by the beach just north of Mikocheni and protected from rain and strong wind by a clear screen. There is a rooftop Buddha Sushi restaurant and a beachside Italian restaurant.
It took a while to find anybody to serve me and in general service was rather slow. However, this was more than made up for by the delicious food, the laid-back atmosphere and the setting. The wine, in particular, was very well priced, unlike so many of the rip-off prices found in other restaurants in Dar.
It took a long time to attract the attention of anybody to settle my bill, but I'd recommend it and will definitely return.
