Delicious food with great ambiance. Nothing can be more relaxing after a stressful week. There is live music and if you get there early you can view the beautiful sunset.

Great place to eat if you prefer a little ambience. The food was excellent and the service very friendly! A big plus is the sea side view.

For more than 15 years the Karambezi Cafe has been serving the East African coast with fine seafood and continental dishes. Travel to Dar es Salaam and one of our thousands of friends will say "You have to go to the Karambezi". Our restaurant evolves and changes daily and through time. Come for a luxurious buffet breakfast from 6 am daily to a cocktail served whilst you overlook the Indian Ocean and dine on an Admirals Platter. Karambezi Cafe....Come Home....
