We had just returned from Zanzibar where we ate seafood every day. I really didn't want more seafood when we returned to Dar. However, we went to this restaurant and I got a seafood platter. It was the best seafood I had eaten on our...More

The food here is decent, but the setting is the reason to go here. The restaurant attracts ex pats which means prices are higher, but not really expensive. Various seafood dishes are not bad, although quality varies.

Great place for sunset drinks. Restaurant is nice and vibey and has a great location being in the waterfront. You can relax after some shopping.

Not a 5 star, fancy place but rather a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy fresh seafood and other casual dinning food. Staff is excellent and fast! The menu is extensive with something for everyone from burgers to prawns and pizza and pasta. Great...More

This used to be a favourite hangout but the food has become mediocre. I used to get the fish but it is now so hit and miss, sometimes, slimy dynamited? undercooked, that I don't bother anymore.

Food was fresh and delicious. Service was very quick and efficient. And the sunset view while we ate...wow!!! Would definitely recommend. It's a busy restaurant. You might want to get there early if you want a table.

Great place to relax and have a drink. We didn't try the food but the service was good and similar prices to the rest of slipway. We enjoyed the view and the ambience

Previously I have been at the waterfront only for a cold beer but now I tried the meal. It is very good, the prawns were excellent accompanied by a bottle of South Africa withe wine, good atmosphere and nice staff.

The Price is no problem but make sure you let them know ahead of time when you would like to eat otherwise you might wait a lot or end up getting served at completely different times each.
