Morogoro Hotel

Reviewed By Shaymaa B

The food was amazing although service was a bit slow. The swimming pool is beautiful, it looked lively and clean. The dessert wasnt all that i remember i had to return it and the waitress refused to refund my money even though the cake was untouched and it looked like plastic. I had to explain myself a couple of times but it was the manager who understood me and was embarrassed

Ricky's Cafe

There is a gas station on the north side of the Old Morogoro Road between the New Acripole Hotel and the Post Office - on the right hand side of the gast station is a place known to every ex-Pat in Morogoro... Ricky's Cafe! The prices are high, the service is a bit slow and the menu on the chalkboard is replete in bad english offering (like "pimp steak" - really, you can't make this stuff up) -- but dang it sometimes you just need a great milkshake and cheeseburger. The atmosphere is nice for being right next to a gas station - a thatched roof under thick trees - so it is shady and cool. The bathrooms are clean, western and they work (but the locks are a bit wacky - you have to really want or need to go!). The worst part of eating here is, well, the ex-pats. It's a bit weird being somewhere in the middle of Africa where whites outnumber blacks by about 10 to 1. The place caters to westerners and it's the only place in Morogoro that does. When you need a mental health break, head to Ricky's Cafe.

When here several times over several days seems like it is a hub to the Americans. Maybe because of the good food and cool atmosphere. I did because of the ice coffees
The prices are comfortable and services are far better than other places here. Not to far off the main drag either.

If you like eating curry outside this is the place for you. Decent curry, cold beer after a hot day. Just hope it doesn't rain as there's no shelter! Take a brolly with you if there's any chance of rain and enjoy the novelty, it's Africa after all!

I enjoy listening to Gordo Ramsey scream about sticky risotto,nasty ,wet risotto on his cooking shows ,so when I was sitting in this overstuffed homage to, Out of Africa, called, The Acropol Hotel, the last thing I would have ordered was,,,, mushroom risotto. Thank heavens my associate from Capetown , said, I hear the vegan food here is really, to die for. I am going to have risotto and salad ,,,and you? I had a burger with homecured maple bacon, pomme frites, coleslaw with cinnamon apple vinegar dressing. and real filtered coffee.The best meal so far in Morogoro , the best risotto ever. not an owner and dog in sight, cause I asked.!!!

we were 4 which ordered pilau and some fish and goat meat, the dish was delicious
the amount of was overwhelming, we ordered 3 pilau for 3 people, one could properly have done the job but was not given this information
the waiting time was almost 45 min which was a bit too long when they additionally said it only will take 15 min
the place as such is looking good is clean and have air condition

Stopped here on way through Morogoro. Food was OK but everything else was very difficult. Food took 1 hr for a plate of spaghetti and a wrap. Restaurant was hot and humid windows all shut. ? Won’t return.
