The staff added to the... More

A special eatery if you love fish. The service is excellent and the menu extensive, the specials board offers a superb choice alongside the main menu. Do not miss this great restaurant if you are visiting Harare you will not be disappointed.

Great quality food in a lovely clean and crisp setting. Substantial menu variety considering its a land locked country with a lot of trading limitations due to cash crisis in the country. Hint of Mozambiquean influences pulling through the menu for those who had the pleasure of experiencing these flavours. The décor is like still living the colonial era of... More

The seafood linguine is out of this world Great food, good service and the host takes great care of you. Good choice of drinks on the menu, but if you want to take your own wine... More
