“VALENTINE'S DINNER”
Reviewed 15 February 2017

We had our Valentines dinner here. The setting was stunning and the food amazing however the service left a lot to be desired. We arrived at 7.30pm and placed our entire food order except for desert by 8.10pm. The pre starter arrived about 30 minutes later with sufficient time before the starter but our main took just over an hour - we received this at 10.10pm. We were offered pepper or mushroom sauce with our beef but when it arrived there was gravy - tasty but not the sauce we were offered. Our desert and coffee were served straight after the main. The Don Pedro was like an Amarula milkshake - not sure if it was milk or very melted ice cream.

If the service had've been good it would have been a perfect evening.

“On the expensive side”
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.
