It had been a real struggle to find a good venue for a romantic dinner in Dar. Several hours of browsing the net and only mixed feelings. Luckily, just hours before we received a recent, experience based recommendation (you know, you can usually trust a...More

If you want to have an extravagant culinary celebration in Dar, the lobster in this restaurant is a good option. Sizes from 1kg and up (if you want 2kg, no problem) are cooked to your liking. Decent wine selection, just don't ask your waiter to...More

We organised a family celebration, we were over 15 people. The organisation was excellent, all was in time and exactly as we ordered. We enjoyed the privacy of the terrace. The meal was simply excellent, with an outstanding seafood platter. Gemma, the manager, was efficient,...More

Alexander's Hotel offers an airy and charming restaurant somewhat hidden away in the Mary Knoll Lane. No overloaded menu, but a good selection of very pricy wines. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the nice surroundings. We had meat balls and crab pate...More

Recommended to try Alexander's (restaurant, but is also a small hotel). I was not disappointed. The waiter was pleasant and efficient. I tried the fish fillet of the day, which was excellent (Dorade) and cooked well (still firm, so not over-cooked). Friends tried the lamb...More
