“Nice setting with good food.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We were staying local and ate here for lunch and dinner different nights. Service was very good albeit the meals did come at varying times ! But when they did they were very nice, good enough for us to come back for lunch after having a dinner previously. It is in a nice setting right by the sea.

“Yummy pizza and salads! ”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Never was i disappointed with the quality of the food, the four or five times I have been. Pizzas are my favourite, but salads are also recommendable.
The location is just perfect. Many people come here to see the sun set over the bay: a beautiful event which might be another reason why I like to eat there.
Service is very decent, no complaints. They handle a usually big crowd with ease and only seldomly sth slips their attention.
Price wise it is OK for what is offered, 19k for a pizza is good.

“Good pizza and salad”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Very nice place, provided you have sprayed yourself with mosquito spray.

I think all of their pizzas are good and salads are ok. And tortellinis with crab meat! It is very convenient that they are near Double Tree hotel. Eat out there :) See the sunset.

“Cocktails Here Are a Must!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Whoa, can you say ex-pat community? It's easy to see that this place is a magnet for ex-pats living and visiting Dar. Not necessarily a bad thing, except for the prices. Sheesh!

We had heard great things about the view, and people weren't lying. It's a lovely place to sit and watch the sunset. Instead of buying a lot of expensive food though, I'd recommend grabbing a beer and taking in the scene. You can grab dinner at a cheaper spot but still get a great sunset out of it.

Our service was excellent, I must say. We asked for directions to another place in the city, and the waiter was very happy to oblige, even writing out notes for us.

“Spectacular View”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The view of the Ocean from this restaurant is so amazing. There are always several customers but the best time to have a meal there is late lunch so as to catch the sunset and the view of the fishing boats on the waters. Service is moderately fast but the bill takes ages to come. The juices are to die for. I had mango and hibiscus which was refreshing. The meals are large portions so make sure you are quite hungry!! You can burn it off with a bit of shopping at Slipway.
