Went to Fishmongers for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was awesome. The hospitality was excellent and the food was certainly brilliant. Am impressed with their maintenance of standards since I was last there. Brilliant stuff.

The best seafood and fish restaurant in Harare, by far. Have been going for years and the quality always very good. Consistency is hard to maintain in a restaurant over a long period of time - I always order the kingclip as it's my favourite meal, and I've always been delighted with the quality. Starters are superb too, especially the... More

As usual a very good place for a business dinner. Atmosphere is excellent. Food was excellent. We made our own platter including Giant Tiger prawns. Was excellent! Fish was superbly cooked, calamari tender and none of the food was oily as so often happens with seafood platters. Good wine list. International clients were very impressed.

We found it so hard to find a decent restaurant in the city centre of Harare. We followed the reviews here and walked in for lunch. As it opens only at 12 noon and we arrived at 11:30am, the staff were kind and allowed us in with drinks ordered first. As it was the last meal in our journey in... More
