Nice bar located next to the Italian clubs in Kiwengwa. Sometimes if the beer is cold is good to mingle with locals. Certainly I would not have dinner there. There is no kitchen. Beers and socializing only. Only if you are solo worth to try.

The waitress taking our order is not happy with us ordering the gamba's and (after telling us they are not available) the langoustine, which is also not available. Of course they only have those in the evening! Although they are mentioned on the lunch menu....More
