Very good food, big portions and reasonable price. Great atmosphere, great staff! Lots of locals eat here, always a good sign for good restaurant! You should go for a dinner if you are Livingstone!

Loved the vibe. Drinks were average price. Food is generous and well presented. Live bands are absolutely fabulously. Perfect place to get a taste of the tourist/local culture.

Hello there, we had dinner last night at Cafe Zambezi, we looked for a local food experience, totally worth it. My wife had the chicken village, and i had the Mbusi (goat), recommended by our great waitress Rebecca.

Definitely a touristy spot but hey, the food selection in town is not the greatest. They have an interesting menu of local food and exotic meats if you are looking to tick that off your list. Prices and food are ok.
