The ambiance at this place is amazing. Lively welcoming with a band singing and dancing, then regular shows every half an hour with traditional dances and songs. Food was not excellent t but it was good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Very nice experience...More

Service and food was excellent. We enjoyed a relaxing couple of hours drinking cocktails and having lunch, while watching the people on the marine parade.

Aimed more at the tourist industry, with a overly Africa decor and menu. The service was friendly and the food good.

Gorgeous setting - right on the edge of the pier overlooking the Indian Ocean. Very romantic but sometimes the music is too loud. Nice cocktails but can be pricey. The setting on the inside could do with some modern furniture. Waitresses were decent.
