Blue Heron

International in Arusha

The pick of the garden restaurants that are a recurring theme in Arusha's east, the Blue Heron gets the tricky combination of lounge bar and family restaurant just right. Sit on the leafy verandah or out on the lawn tables to enjoy a menu ranging from paninis and soups to beef tenderloin and various creative specials. The smoothies are divine.

There's also a children's menu and a carefully chosen selection of South African wines.
