“Perfect Place To Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Blue Heron is a lovely little sanctuary. Its its such a beautiful setting especially when the frangipanis are in full bloom. The Chicken Slaw salad is a favourite. You must also try the passion juice. It won't disappoint

“Food for Thought”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Great restaurant in the centre of Arusha. The garden setting is relaxed and attractive. A bit pricey but worth the good food and chilled atmosphere. Wifi available. Interesting little shop with curios. Don't miss it if you are in town for a meal.

“Fabulous Food, wonderful atmosphere and a brilliant gift shop!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

While in Arusha I spent many a dinner, lunch or just coffee at this establishment. I would never have gone back if I wasn't happy with any aspects of this resturant, as you can see I enjoyed myself. My only disappointment was when I couldn't find the Vege Lasagne on the menu only to be told it only comes at lunch but i found meals that more than satisfied my appetite.
