Probably the most spectacular view for a restaurant in Dar es Salaam! Good mojito, good lobster, good fish, etc. Prices a little on the side though. The brunch on a Sunday is however excellent value for money and highly recommended (be there before 1100). Have been there so many times but first review today after an other real nice lunch....

The view is spectacular , the food is fresh and delicious but the dessert.. that chocolate cake was the best thing i ever had. It just melts in the mouth. I kept on going back just for that chocolate cake.

My regular weekend location, excellent ambiance, nice and quality food, although slightly pricey but worthy it, the service is great and efficient. I will rank them among the top 5 must visit places in Dar.

Nice menu and good food. Slightly more expensive than other places on the Peninsula. Terrace on the cliff can get breezy but when calm its great space.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Karambezei Cafe. The good was delicious, the views excellent and the service very courteous and efficient. The fresh fish was great, ut the red snapper was better than the king fish, which was a bit dry. I would highly recommend this restaurante for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can't beat it... More

KC has the nicest view in the town. Live music (over the weekend) makes this cafe very lively. I love their BBQ chicken breast which is served with salsa and chips/mashed potatoes/rice/veg. Prawn tempura as a starter is nice too. The price is on the higher side but considering the view and friendly service you wouldn't mind. Give it a... More

Part of the Sea Cliff Hotel this cafe cum restaurant over looks the Indian Ocean. Great for lunch or just chilling with a coffee. but very noisy at night and not conducive for dinner.
