We were there recently on a Thursday when they have a live band. As usual the food was good (maybe a little overpriced), and the ambience was perfect.

We went on a Thursday night. Food was great, and there was a live rock band later in the evening. May be a little overpriced though...

Excellent service, great cocktails and delicious food! What more could one wish for? Our waiter was incredible and had a wicked sense of humour. All in all a great experience.

The place is peaceful and full of greenery. There is ample space for parking and garden flowers and plants to buy for your home... The staff is quite friendly and knowledgeable about the service and offers. The cocktails are really nice and the meals... divine. Definitely going back soon. Thank you guys!

Dear Tim W Ouch! A tad on the harsh side we feel. Our Sunday Roasts have become most popular for a number of our regular customers. All freshly prepared. There is always a choice of roast lamb with redcurrant jelly and mint sauce, roast fillet of beef with fresh horseradish and Yorkshire pudding, and the most popular roast belly pork... More

Beautiful venue. perfect garden. the who is who of Harare meet here. Amanzi is the social get together venue for the up and coming younger generation and the rest who wants to be seen. Unfortunately the venue is prohibitively expensive and not value for money. Although food is of good quality, portions are skimpy and not adequate considering the prices.... More

Dear GG Yes pricing is a matter of much contention especially to South Africans who draw comparison to Rand prices. It certainly does make us appear expensive. However, spare a thought for the overheads including generators, boreholes, solar power and newly introduced commercial City of Harare rates on 4 acres of land. The money to foot these bills has to... More

I have been going to Amanzi for years, the standard of food has dropped drastically especially for the amount we pay to have dinner. It used to be my favorite restaurant, I'm happy to pay for good food but the quality is boring, poor, tasteless and way below average! Has management had a meal there recently? Somethings got to give!... More

Dear Nitta L We assure you we do not rip people off! It is sad that you take this view when all items on our menu are individually priced to fit most peoples pockets.
