Slightly crazy bar/club with good mix of music and people. Steaks are good value and the outlook from the terrace is very peaceful.

Chez Maky has been around for quite some time and on average is a great place to pop in for an excellent coffee and a chat. Maky, the owner/operator always has time for a chat, you are never alone at Chez Maky.

I absolutely enjoyed my experience at Chez Maky. I hadn't expected to be wowed by the view from the outdoor space. You can experience the natural beauty of the city from Chez Maky. The famous noodles live up to their name. Don't expect anything fancy in the venue or the food. Go and enjoy the simplicity that has to offer.... More

This is located in a nice location with a nice pool to lounge around so is good for those lazy days. Food service is slow so when you arrive and want food later order it when you arrive so it will come when you want it. Maky is there himself most days so nice to go chat to him however... More

The atmosphere, friendly service, good food, cold beers and value for money. This is one of my favourite places in Blantyre and I have never been disappointed. Friendly waiters and host made it the perfect evening.

Chez Maky is a great, friendly place to have a meal, enjoy some music, or stay in one of several rooms and casitas on premises. Free and fast wireless throughout, this is my first choice to stay in Blantyre. I travel a lot for work, and a sterile, boring hotel without free wireless is not my idea of a productive... More

Maky's grills are excellent, and one can enjoy the meals looking out over Blantyre, or tucked down by the pool. Maky is an outstanding host, and makes one feel very at home. Trip Advisor doesn't allow one to review the guesthouse - I don't understand why! It has the staff, individual rooms, great service. I stayed almost a week there,... More

Chez Maky is a charming restaurant tucked away in a lovely neighborhood. Ask to sit on the veranda for a wonderful view of Blantyre. Lunch and supper. Food is good, too.

The view in the evening and night time is lovely, expanses of lights across the city. It is very romantic. The food was okay. The wine selections were okay. The service was fine. I would return for the lovely view and an enjoyable evening. It was a nice place for a large gathering.
