Description: For more than 15 years the Karambezi Cafe has been serving the East African coast with fine seafood and continental dishes. Travel to Dar es Salaam and one of our thousands of friends will say "You have to go to the Karambezi". Our restaurant evolves and changes daily and through time. Come for a luxurious buffet breakfast from 6 am daily to a cocktail served whilst you overlook the Indian Ocean and dine on an Admirals Platter. Karambezi Cafe....Come Home....

“Excellent food at short notice”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

We had a very pleasant evening at Karambezi. The restaurant took a booking for 40 of us at short notice, and the service and food were excellent, handling all our differing orders and serving us in good time. There is plenty of choice, but the seafood is especially good!

“my favourite place”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

This is my favourite in Dar, I live in Dar for most of 2012, and would visit most days for a cold beer and a seafood meal, got to know the staff very well and I could not ask for better service anywhere. Will be going back there during my next visit in October/November 2013.

“Great view, good food”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

I took the wife and daughter of a colleague here for dinner a couple of weeks ago. Of course, the venue is very impressive and it was high tide with waves crashing against the cliff. We sat outside next to the cliff and it was a great location. The service from the wait staff was professional and timely. The food was good, but not great, in my view. Starters (tempura prawns and fried calamari) were good, but my tuna steak was a bit lifeless and looked and felt like it had waited under a heat lamp a bit. My guests' pasta was a good, but not generous, serving. Nevertheless, I will come back for the venue, the service and the food.

“good food with great view”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

the place is at its best during high tides. best enjoyed during afternoons.
they do good pastas & pizzas. the cheese & chilli focaccia makes the perfect starter.
the bar despenses good cocktails & mocktails. the staff are good given the exception of first 3 visits, when i had to literally walk out of the restaurant. but i think they did preety well to recover.
the last visit was this sunday & the server Jameson was really the best guy who server us in our last 10 odd visits. not to forget the supervisor Eric who keept a close check on how was our food & drinks and if we were attended properly.
great job!! keep it up....
