Lovely restaurant and amazing view but only offers chilled red wine by the glass, nothing at room or ambient temperature. That needs sorting. Real shame.

I can say this is among the best chilling options one can have on a weekend in Dar. I went there on a Sunday afternoon for a brunch and just enjoyed it. I was lucky enough to attend to a party that was being held...at the venue that day so it was good as the music was nice and the atmosphere was just too promising. Would recommend it for anyoneMore

We ordered lunch by the pool after our swim. The meal was large and tasty with waiters taking orders at your deckchair and bringing it to you. Lovely spot to have a bite to eat.More

We had several meals here without complaint. Our teen boys had a few issues communicating with staff but nothing that couldn’t be fixed and the Terrace staff accommodated well while we went out for day errands so they could enjoy the pool. Calamari was a...favorite choice. Samosas were a bit to oily but good. Fish and chips was great! Beef filet was perfect. The whole fish wasn’t fresh and we ended up sending it back. Beef mishkaki was super and flavorful. Overall, very much recommended. The Waterfront Restaurant is the same menu and we leaned they had combined. It’s really a choice of quiet on the Terrace or a busier and rowdier setting on the Waterfront.More
