Karambezi Cafe is one of my favorite outside restaurants in Dar. Their seafood is top notch. They have a secure parking lot. While they do have fans and umbrellas, I recommend going in the evening as dinning outside during lunch hours can get quite warm.

This is the best place in Dar to get brunch! Only until 11am but what an amazing Spread of food all for 30,000TSH! Great service and ocean views. Lunch and dinner here also fab. Love this place. Noisy and busy so not great for intimate dinners but certainly great for a fun night out. Often a live band too.

The place for a late lunch and a cold Kili. Not gourmet food but a nice seafood selection. Great sunsets over the Bay. The drinks are cold and it gets quite busy. Nice atmosphere. touristy. close to curio shops and a couple of other services. Part of Slipway "Mall". Has Wi-Fi, most of the time. :)

Nicely located with a gorgeous view on the ocean. The place for a morning cappucino or a nice Sunday afternoon lunch. Staff is very attentive and well trained. Guests are really guests. We regularly visited on Sunday afternoon and always enjoyed: the food as well as the service. Keep this level please.

Good environment for eating -next to the sea at Sea cliff. Seafood was good and fresh, although the sauces were a little heavy for fish, but still tasty. Zanzibar fish was tasty (coconut based sauce) . Service was good (perhaps a little too attentive at times, but no complaints. Live music on a Friday was not too intrusive. Food tasted... More
