“Good, but pricey for what you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Rhapsody's is a mid/upscale chain restaurant; think Friday's, but fancier. The food and drinks were quite good, as was the service, but the price seemed a bit steep for what you get. But I'd still go back since the pickings are slim in Lusaka!

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I was going to lunch at Merlin, but getting there I decided to go to Raphsody's. Very good aspect and the site is quite good, despite that your views will be the parking lot. The food was very well cooked and the staff is attentive and doesn't take to long to serve. Nicely surprised.

“Fair and Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is so clean and their food is nice. They just have to work on the availability of their drinks because on two occasions, the drink I wanted to take was not available and yet it is there on the menu

“Popular hangout of Lusaka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

If you're in town for even a weekend, this place is a must go if you want to experience the night life of Lusaka. One of the most popular hangouts with many restaurants along side (not to mention the hip and happening club 101 next door!) it is quite the hangout for people of almost all ages. Make sure you sit indoors if you want to have a conversation though because that music can be obnoxiously loud sometimes!
Families not recommended, especially weekends (unless dining indoors where the atmosphere is much more sober). As for the rest, whether your taste is impeccable food, good wine, fun cocktails, tasty munchers or zany shooters.. this is the place!
