Three of us were here for lunch on Saturday without a reservation. We were shown to a shaded table overlooking the bay. Perfect. Service was prompt and unimposing. Good choice on the menu typical of the region. All in all a relaxing and pleasant experience....More

Good food and great atmosphere by the ocean after a 2 week trip in Tanzania. The restaurant is in Slipway, which has a grocery store, ice cream place, and a bunch of souvenir shops.

The Price is no problem but make sure you let them know ahead of time when you would like to eat otherwise you might wait a lot or end up getting served at completely different times each.
