Food is great but my only issue it is not always the same. I frequented this place often as it was close to Camp. The Bar is one of the better stocked in DJ with some hard to find whiskeys. Camel was my go to...but also has fresh lobster and crabs.More

This is for everyone thinking about going to this place.I'm currently writing this as I'm waiting for my food to arrive and it's now been an hour and a half.they took 30 mins for just four drinks and it fells like the waiters had their...head's in the clouds, they were more interested in chatting to each other.It felt like a sick prank show, I would have given zreo stars if I could. Overall, I cannot take away the fact that the food was good however the service put a downer on the mood.More

This restaurant is a really nice treat in Djibouti, especially if you like lobster and prawns. Both are served and fish as well, though I didn't have the fish. The fried calamari also is excellent.

A consistent restaurant with friendly waitstaff that is multilingual. Nice alternative to the generally enjoyable Yemeni Fish restaurants found across the city.
