Description: Head Chef & Owner, Jamey Townsend, follows the modern trend of 'sloe food' where all ingredients are sourced locally within Zambia, or grown organically in his own garden wherever possible.Our methodology ensures fresh seasonal produce that is grown & farmed in a sustainable & humane manner. No pre-processed, canned or tinned produce is used so everything that comes out of the kitchen is 100% traceable to its roots. Ingredients that can not be produced in Zambia such as spices are obtained from local farmers markets. We guarantee that only the highest quality ingredients are used in our cuisine.The menu has a European theme including specials that change on a weekly basis; and new dishes with every new season.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Cozy little restaurant hidden right behind the Taj hotel. Very varied locally sourced menu ,everything is fresh and cooked to order. mostly south african dishes with a touch of the Levant.
Very personal service and great experience all-around. Located close to the Taj and the Intercontinental

“Fabulous little hidden secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Been to the Four Seasons Bistro twice in a week now, having discovered that it's been open for three months, and the Chef has been creating his great meals for the last two years at Smugglers!

Highly recommended - particularly if you're in a nice size group, and you're looking for some great food and really quite reasonable prices.

Jamey, the Host / Chef, cools everything using local ingredients wherever possible - and the portions are, not to put too fine a point on it, American in size! Don't order extra fries as we did!!

I'm sure he hopes that it doesn't remain a hidden little gem - but at the moment it's quite nice to be able to pop in and still find a table :-)
