“Terrible service, dirty, average food”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Waitress tried to talk us into ordering the most expensive food on the menu by saying some dishes were not available. Instead of shrimp we ordered therefore grilled gambas. First of all, our side dishes came 15 minutes before food so were cold when the food got tgere. Secondly, the gambas didn't arrive but prawns did. When challenged, waitress insisted it was the same. Manager arrived and said they didn't have gambas and the waitress didn't speak English. Even though she spoke very well when it suited her. Drinks arrived well after food when we chased 3 times, and came in extra large glasses for special charge, without asking if we want larger than on the menu. Overall, money centric terrible service, with tables not cleaned and food average at best.

This place is strtegically located we great views from wherever you sit. We discovered it by accident as all other places were closed till 6pm. They serve great fish ... But the smoothie is to die for. They serve it with ice cream.. Well if you are in the area ... You need to visit this place at least once.

This restaurant is along the ocean line and a very good place to feel the ambiance of the evening. A good place to visit in the evenings when it is fairly cool- Djibouti is hot! The restaurant serves teas, coffee, really good seafood and other Djibouti dishes-they have a nice signature cocktail juice concoction that keeps me going back. Good place.

Very nice location on rue de venice. With a view over the water. The only thing they actually had in the menu were sea food dishes. But it was tasty. They do have wi-fi if you bother to ask For the password. They don't serve alcohol.

I think if you are an international traveler in Africa, only things you ask are cleaness and safety. Moonlight has both but still it can improve many things in terms of hygiene at the kitchen. Please Djibouti, small things matter. You have to deliver at the least the following standards;

1) clean kitchen
2) timely service
3) good food

You will see the difference once you begin to deliver these.
