A beautiful spot, absolutely amazing service, special credit to server Efrahm who without being overbearing was attentive, was friendly, funny & helpful. Nothing was too much. Will definitely be back again!

The food here is always good, but they have no understanding that people come to eat and enjoy time by the sea and talk - it's impossible because they play so loud music that's it's a concert! Yelling while eating is not a good experience....Been here many times, but this was my last - at least during the weekends.More

Nice spot to enjoy sunset. Also live music in weekends eve. Lovely sushi, delicious sashimi. Nice and fresh seafood selection but don’t go for a “catch of the day” Most freshest, delicious and cheapest one in the menu is “fish and chips” Order one, you...won’t regret it. Friendly staff, fast service BUT very expensive.More

The place is great with stunning views but the service is a bit slow. Beef ribs are the best.Take a look at the presentation and you will love the food before eating it.

We visited Cape Town Fish Market for our last evening in Dar Es Salaam and last meal of our wonderful holiday. As such, we indulged and ordered lots of delicious food. Service was great, very attentive. We ordered 6 baked oysters, cheesy garlic bread &...Tuna Carpaccio for starters. The tuna was cooked perfectly! For mains Seafood pasta & Seafood noodles. Both exceptional. All far too much food than we needed to order but all really tasty & recommended! This was the perfect end to a wonderful holiday.More

The welcome was warm and friendly. Our waiter was excellent, very attentive and also his English was great. He really took care of us from the beginning till we left. We enjoyed the atmosphere being right next to the sea and having lovely food and...wine. We will go there again as soon as we are back to Dar es Salaam. We can highly recommend the place.

Perhaps I should have ordered the fish. The clue of bad food should have began with the arrival of my garlic & cheese bread loaf which was frozen in the center. Upon its return I only assume they microwaved it because instead of replacing it...they simply brought the same loaf that I’m had been broken off. Now on to my steak which was merely warm and slathered in a sauce making the meat tasteless and rubbery.More

Do not go to this restaurant. My friend and I went for a nice little sundowner, she ordered the popcorn shrimp. Little did we know, the chef can't prepare shrimp. He didn't devein the shrimp. THAT IS SHRIMP POOOP. We told them about it and...they brought a new plate, BUT IT WAS THE EXACT SAME THING, POOOP. We also ordered sushi, the rice was soggy and extremely overcooked. I took an avocado and tuna salad, the picture is super deceiving, it was tasteless, basic and drowned in cheap mayonnaise, along with that, there was a fish scale in my food. We decided to inform the manager so they could improve (we were trying to help) but to my surprise, instead of accepting the critique she decided gaslight me and tell the shrimp was too small to devein when it was an average sized shrimp, that is ridiculous. Cape town fish market, work on yourself. NEVER AGAINMore
