We had a set menu meat $75 and vegetarian $55. The service, the setting and the food was amazing. Each course came with a recommended wine. The portions were small, delicious, very original and beautifully presented.

We arrived very late (10:30pm) and the kitchen stayed open to serve us a three course meal (with choices for each). I had snapper fish which was well prepared. Also had breakfast the next morning - some fresh fruit, juices, cereal, select pastries, bread, cold meats and a hot menu.

This restaurant was reasonably priced given the high level of service and quality. It has a wonderful setting/views and the food was the best we had during our trip.

A large party of us- approx 20. We were all seated together. The food was excellent and so was the service. A great choice, and vegetarian guests also well catered for. A good selection of wines and drinks. The views were stunning at night- we even saw a shooting star. The service was efficient and friendly. Definitely recommend a visit.

I had dinner here several nights - once with a group outside of our stay and two times while staying on the property. Each time the food was creative, delicious, sensitive to needs for vegetarians or other options, filling and simply a gourmet experience. Save room for dessert, you'll wish you had!

The best place for dinner in Arusha with no doubt. The views and decoration at the restaurant are very nice. Service, if we compare to the quality of Tanzania, very well trained. They make sure everything is ok, if you are enjoying, if you need anything... This is something hard to find, and on top of that they even ask... More

The food was great. We had a big team and we all got such good service. We had a bbq lunch, and they did not disappoint. The rooms were fantastic, spacious, the showers heavenly. The staff very helpful and courteous.
