The atmosphere here is very relaxed, including tables right on the Lake Victoria beach. The food is good, too. Watch out for the kites (birds), though, because they'll try to steal your food, and are quite good at it!

The place this is situated in is stunning and a great place to take the family. Nice relaxing place to have a drink and just enjoy the day. Worth a visit when in Mwanza

Close to the airport, which is nice if you want to have a meal on your way out or in. Food took a long time, some items were not available - but the lovely view on the beach made up for it.

Tilapia has nice food, but no place to swim. This one has a really nice beach and the food is quite ok.
