Was at this bar quite regularly during my visit to Dar and feel that apart from the great views of the blue sea, the choice of music whilst your visit is great!!!! The staff, especially Eric and Jalina, were remarkably comforting and made me feel at home!!! I recommend the place to all for the great ambience felt there including... More

I was in Dar Es Salaam, staying in the Oyster Bay region of the city for two and a half weeks and ate lunch and dinner there frequently during that time and always had a good meal. It's bar/Barbeque/burgers type food but well cooked and tasty with lovely views over the waterfront.

Visited this restaurant for lunch. It has a pretty view of the Indian Ocean and the service is very good (they are all very attentive and the food came relatively quickly). I had read about their pizzas but unfortunately they were not making pizzas this day. I ate the vegetarian pasta instead which was alright but not super. Overall, though,... More

Ate here a couple of times. The local food was very good, the curries were amazing. Travelling with a large group of people this was always a good meeting point. The staff were great and happily moved tables to accomodate many people. Just remember your sunnies as there is quite a glare in the late afternoon, which otherwise is the... More

We walked around Slipway and shopped a little. Here was the place to relax and chill for half an hour, supposedly. I ended up sitting there for three hours, eating great seafood, drinking local beer, and enjoying the great view of sunset. Highly recommend it.

Been here with friends and colleagues and also solo for lunch. The location is superb, the service is personal and excellent even when busy which is often. The food however is nothing short of superb. A bit pricey but in my opinion worth every penny. The staff led by one of the hosts Eric are jovial , friendly and very... More

Ate here last night in Dar and didn't disappoint. It is easy to get to (Slipway a landmark with taxi drivers). Food very good, staff young and helpful, mixed drinks good and reasonable. Pizza exceptional. For a simple, carefree meal - this is an excellent choice.
