We decided to take a road trip to the Northern part of the Island and checked TripAdvisor for recommendations to eat out which lead us to Wave's.

We went for a dinner and expected average meals but we were really surprised by how great every dish was. Their stuffed fish was delicious and service ok, too. We had to wait for quite a while to get our order ready but the atmosphere on the beach is so nice that we didn't mind it.

The place is really good. The food is amazing, taste so good! I've tried surf and turf and the prawns were absolutely amazing! The tables are in the beach, not to lightly, not the more comfortable place... but the quality of food really compensate! Cheap

I was waiting 55minutes for the most disgusting pizza ever. Microwave pizza taste better. Staff just didnt care. Restaurant was almost empty. You can eat better and cheaper in different place. Save your time and avoid thi place. Cannot recommend it at all

We stopped here randomly for dinner after watching a stunning sunset. We are vegetarian and they made us a delicious vegetable curry with rice and flat bread. It was super yummy and a huge portion. I also had perfect mango and avacado juice. The cost was only 10,000 Tanzanian Shillings for my meal (less than $5.00), and this is with... More
