1. Mediterraneo Restaurant and Hotel

This is a  is a beautiful setting on the coast north of the city with carved-wooden chairs and tables and a lounging area for cocktails before you sit down to eat.

3. Capetown Fish Market – Asian-African mixture

The name is deceiving – it’s not a market but a restaurant, which serves nicely prepared sea food with roots in the South African and Japanese cuisine. And as you might guess, the original comes from Cape Town. Make sure to get a table on time for the beautiful sunset over the Msasani bay. On weekends the experience is often underlined with live music.

5. Shooter’s Grill – Straight from the grill

This restaurant convinces with its great view from the roof terrace, the attentive service and the consistently good food. Make sure to bring an empty stomach since most of the dishes are everything but low on calories. Classics are the steaks and other delicious barbecue specialties.
