Reviewed 7 February 2017 via mobile

The food and ambience is great. Hoever it tends to be a bit overpriced. Try the qual and steaks which are great. Beautiful gardens.

“Lunch in the garden”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 via mobile

Location of this place makes it easy to access. Located on the main road to Nyamapanda. Lunch outside in the garden on a sunny day gives you unforgettable experience.

“Lovely dining experience”
Reviewed 2 February 2017

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 live band playing in the other room by the bar towards the front of the house. The dinner came timely & was quite delicious. Our friends said it was one of the top restaurants in the area & I would have to agree. After dinner we went to the bar which was getting a much younger, hipper crowd with a DJ playing. Apparently post dinner time, the place becomes a cool lounge which was fun. If ever in Harare, I would definitely recommend dining here.

“Drinks and Tapas”
Reviewed 19 January 2017 via mobile

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 and one or two other tapas. Really very good and tasty. So nice to go to a classy place for after work drinks.

“Food So-So, Place with Nice Decor and Decent Guests”
Reviewed 14 January 2017

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 a hotel in Harare city centre.

Upon entering, we saw that the place was nice with classy decor and well dressed guests. The food was however disappointing, not matching its hardware. The waiters were not attentive, service slow.

As it's dark in dinner time, we did not see clearly the exterior of the restaurant and the environment. Perhaps the views would be better for lunch.

Overall, I do not recommend it for the food and drinks were not tasty or impressive.
