We came here on a Thursday evening with 3 friends, 2 of which live in Harare & dine at Amanzi often & I can see why. We sat at a lovely table toward the back of the room which is decorated in a very eclectic style with African artwork. The waitstaff were very prompt & professional. There was also a... More

My Husband and I went for early drinks and Tapas, the atmosphere on the veranda is great with the gorgeous green garden and sculptures. The wine by the glass was superb, not from a box which is normal in zim and also served in a nice big wine glass. The taps was delicious, We had the Duck Pate, spring rolls... More

It's a nice and higher class place with more elegant kind of guests. We, a group of five persons, walked in for a late dinner after taking a taxi at Harare domestic airport, with our big-five pieces of luggages staying in the taxi and the driver waiting for us to finish the meal and then sending us to check in...

Amanzi is an amazing location and worth visiting. Large and lush garden and tasteful decor. Eat dinner with my family. Service was good and menu quite varied but I found the food somewhat pricey and average to be honest. Recommended for location but there are better eating options in Harare

As you walk in the garden is breathtakingly beautiful and the fountain lights up very well at night. The food was great and their portions were generous. The waiter seemed to forget about us at times I guess because we were sitting outside. Other than that, the food was delicious and with the help of the manager we got an... More

I had great lunch here - beautifully presented and delicious food. Attentive service. I've also attended trivia here on a Wednesday night - very different experience - quite busy - but some good options for dinner and the staff manage to maintain a good level of service.

Great dinner of pork belly after great calamari starter - finished off as great evening in bar area listening to the live music on offer which believe is a Thursday occasion - all round good evening and only word of warning is the ZAR unfriendly US$ prices!

This is one restaurant in Harare that I reckon now has the hallmark of unique exquisite cuisine. The atmosphere is laid back and soothing. You are spoilt for choice and can choose from a variety of western and African dishes on offer. I liked their cuss - cuss served with a local trout fish variety and washed this down with... More

The tapas menu is interesting, but the grounds and ambiance truly add to make the experience top rate. A lovely porch to dine on. Very professional staff. A great Harare dining experience.
