Excellent family restaurant. Food is always delicious and fresh. We have been going to Paula's Place since they opened and can highly recommend them. Staff always friendly and helpful.

The restaurant was easy to find, food was tasty, drinks were excellent, and service was friendly. As we were in Harare on business, I can't comment on the prices.

Not necessarily, it will guarantee a place but there is a lot of room both inside and out so it's up to you. Can always call them direct.
