We spent a very pleasant sun set dinner! Great Terrasse on the see. Majid our server was fast and attentive. Calamari had a light and crunchy crust and were perfectly tender inside. The Poke Bowl was full of taste with very fresh fish and tasty...dressings. Exactly what we were hoping for. No need to say that we highly recommend it. Not sure why others did not like it.?More

We loved having food and drinks along with live music. It was a great evening we had over here. Dining with a backdrop of ocean waters was a delight for our ears and eyes. 👍👍

Good location on the water with nice views. Food was ok. There was a fly in the potjie but they were apologetic, offered a replacement dish and when we didn’t want they took it off the bill. We preferred some of the other restaurants in...the area - this felt it was a case of style over substance. Lots of people going there to be seen and instagrammed.More

Fish market is close to the ferry and downtown. Open air, but fresh and a good turnover. Much to choose from and no regrets

The milkshake they brought me was like melted you know when you have ice cream and it melts? Yeah that what I received plus the Carmel in the milkshake looked some type of way. I then got my food and found hair on it. Literally...was shocked, showed it to the waitress and she took back my food. I wished I took a picture so I could have shown you guys. Anyways after that the waitress and the manager were annoying, the forced me to pay my bill before I finished my meal just cause the waitress had to go. 🙄 Cape Town Fish Market in Dar Es Salaam has downgraded y’all are poorMore

Nice place where to enjoy a good dinner. The restaurant has a beautiful view on the ocean, the food served is excellent and the waiters very kind. Not cheap but fair for the quality. Suggested
