Very nice relaxing spot for sundowners on the peninsula. Lovely ambience and very attentive and smiling staff. You'll need a taxi to get here if not staying at the Slipway. Didnt try the food but the menu looked good if slightly overpriced but considering the location worth it.

The ambience in this restaurant is absolutely great. The cocktails are delicious and the staff super friendly and helpful. Special mention to Bright, who called our hotel from his own phone number because we needed a pick up and our phones were not working. Great job, continue like this!

Twenty minutes (by taxi) from the centre of Dar, this is a lovely restful place to eat. To be fair the food isn't absolutely amazing - but it's very good. What makes it excellent, overall? Well, it's got great views. It's relaxed, and so it's relaxing. Sunset is beautiful. Everyone - serving staff and fellow diners - is happy. And... More

Very nice setup, it deserves better, the restaurant is sitting on the shore and marina...? Food is not great, except the pizzas probably the best Pizzas in Town. Good Ice cream shop nearby and playground for kids. Always good to come for a coffee in the morning and relax. Amazingly I didn't find many people coming over the weekend may... More
