Delicious seafood (we got seafood tapas and seafood soup), amazing drinks and very relaxed and tranquil dining experience right by the beach, especially during sunset.

Among all the restaurant standing in the beach this one is a good address. The fish is good and the waiters are so kind. You don’t wait too much time to eat. I recommand.

The sea food was delicious, the waiters friendly and the cocktails very good. Happy hour for cocktails is from 5 to 8 pm! We will definitely go back - the ocean view is amazing!

My partner paid 45000tsh for the jumbo grilled lobster. It was massive and really nice. Happy hour cocktails (5pm -8pm daily) are awesome. 5000tsh each from a big list, very boozey. Free WiFi too. What more could you want?

I don’t understand who can give the rating 5* because the place is maybe good for the location (on the beach), but for the eating is the worst experience ever. We had two experiences with the restaurant and in both I was disappointed. We tryied...More
