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....

“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

We had two very pleasant evenings at Karambezi. Perched on the edge of the cliff with wonderful views of the sea and the islands.
The food and service was great both times. The meals were a little pricey, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely worth a visit!

“Excellent food at short notice”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
