Its quite unfortunate that I would have been one of the few people to negatively review the place but it felt inevitable. I got recommended by a friend I truest so did not think twice. It’s in the middle of streets which was no big...deal for us. It all felt good as we walked in however the ambiance just started changing as we were getting served. First No drinks Menu! We had to trust on prices told by the waiters which sounded off! I went for tuna and fries, my partner went for chops and fries. A few minutes later someone came back saying fries were not available. They could only serve rice or Mash potatoes. Our question was how come I can get mash but not fries? They said it’s just the way it is. The mash was pre cooked - a-bit shocking. We expect fresh food. We expressed our feelings to the waiter that were really not happy, we’ll only eat because we came from very far therefore had no choice So they gave us the option for a-bit of mash and steamed veggies which we went for A few minutes later came the food which looked aweful I never wanted to see rice in my face - I was clear to the waiter I wanted nothing heavy, yet my plate was a combo Rice + vegetables + tuna - honestly I felt like I was eating left overs. I tried but couldn’t - I sorted the tuna and veggies and had a few before I was done. Oh I almost forgot- the food came cold! I couldn’t bare with that, took it back to be heated Any ways not sure it’s always like this here but I’m not a happy customer- if you’re new and don’t wanna risk your date with you loved one - may be else where but not here! I wouldn’t gamble!More

This place is very warm and stylish with a lovely rustic feel. The staff are friendly and attentive. The menu has plenty of choice and the food is excellent! The restaurant goes out of its way to provide you with a meal that will suit...your wants and needs. The place is very welcoming and relaxing. I will be returning regular for meals, as I consider this easily the best place in Dar es Salaam to eat.More

Delicious food. I enjoyed the jumbo prawns and my husband liked the ox tail. Beautifully decorated place with relaxing music. It’s down an unassuming road but once you enter it is a nice restaurant. Generous wine pours. Nice people. Accepts credit cards. Worth a visit!

I had the snapper fillet with mash potato, my partner had steak we both really enjoyed the food. The surroundings were beautiful with lots of lovely paintwork and the owner was friendly (as I find in most places in Tanzania). It’s a lovely place for...a date night or a hang out.More
