Had two dinners because I stayed by Sea Cliff. Food was ok. Great view overlooking the ocean. Unfortunate service wise not too up for it.

I liked everything about this place, from the food to the service to the location/view. Be warned that breakfast stops as 11am and they only start lunch as 12pm, so unless you want to sit and have drinks for a while don't go there between 11am and 12pm expecting food. That did not bother me, since I enjoyed the shade... More

A fantastic view. Super food. Great service. This is the place to go to for a really memorable meal. Don't leave it to the end of your visit to eat at this venue. Make it your first stop. You'll definitely want to return.

A good place to take your Customer, large range of food. Book in advance if you want a place by the sea side or on the upstair terrasse. Prices are high.

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.

Thank Misspvi

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....
