Nothing much to say about this restaurant. Food was average and boring. The staff spoke english which was handy and were helpful ordering a taxi after dinner.

If you want to enjoy seafood by the water, then this is the place to be. Our daughter even had the chance to feed fish with bread given by the waiter...

Food was good and you sit right on the water which was nice. Usually out of things on the menu. Fresh naan made to order. Only took cash (USD or DJF) no cards.

We are a very large family & the staff were very accommodating. We ordered the seafood platter & the tropical fruit drink. Honestly, the food was amazing. We had a mixture of lobster, crab & king prawns! There was so much that we struggled to...eat it all. They also have shesha for those who enjoy it. The views are amazing. Definitely child friendly & great value for money.More

We had the pleasure of eating here a few times while in Djibouti. The grilled fish was amazing 2 out of the 3 times. Very tender and flakey! Each dinner plate was enough for two women to split. The naan should not be passed up!...On a hot night, they do have some ice cream, which is difficult to find in Djibouti. They also have a special creamy juice drink that they are known for, but won't give out the ingredients. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is the last time we ate there the fish was not fresh and we had to send it back.More

They put three other guys in my room and served them food without serving me. No order was taken unless I stopped the waiter who was about to leave the room, and no food was served for me even though I was there before other...people came in. I was forced to leave the restaurant hungry after waiting long sitting next to other people eating. Do not go if you are a woman unless you want to waste time.More

Could be a nice place, in a convenient place near the water (harbour). But the food quality is below average, and the service is slow and apathic.

We were recommended this restaurant because of it’s supposedly great seafood, view and ambience. We were very disappointed. The food was complicated and tasted ‘wrong’ as if the chef had got his spices mixed up. The restaurant is outside by the sea, but so dark...that even the waiters could not see where they were walking. The price of our meal was absolutely ridiculous and I certainly would not recommend this restaurant.More

Restaurant Moonlight is a very nice restaurant. It is conveniently placed across from the old Port of Djibouti. It would be hard to find a more romantic spot in Djibouti, surrounded by water, as it is. The service and the food is great, I have...on several occasions enjoyed both steak, chicken and various salads and have never been let down by quality issues. The price is fine.More
