I made a dinner reservation for two. When I arrived, the receptionist said she "forgot" my booking, without once apologising and with attitude, and told us to wait for a table opening. Behind me were two other groups (2 persons each) who got a table without waiting or reservation, the receptionist smiled and ushered them to the table, in front... More

Without making any prior booking, we went to the Marlin restaurant. Despite how busy they were, they were friendly and requested we wait in a waiting area until a table was available. In the mean time they allowed us to place our orders, resulting in our food being ready at the same time as us getting an available table. The... More

This reataurant has kept its consistance in the quality of their food and servics! It's good to see that after many years, they are still very popular, pulling all sorts of crowds. Yesterday was my nephew's birthday, and they gave him a lovely surprise! Thank you to all involved, you did it in style, was a lovely surprise for him!

Marlins is our favourite place in town! We have been so many times and it never fails to please us. The food is always amazing, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff are kind and accommodating. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody wanting a calm, chilled experience with beautiful food and a great ambience

Steaks are the attraction but rather than order the "pepper steak" (fillet with pepper sauce, I recommend the posterhouse with a side or pepper sauce - twice the meat, with different muscles, and the same sauce as served with the filet. Attractive colonial-esque clubbish atmosphere. Reserve a table as the restaurant ispopular.

Excellent, we frequently visit Marlin and have never had bad service or food. Even without a booking. Friendly staff, good food. Parking can be a issue when they are full

The place was crowded with tables too close to each other. We had to squeeze our way to our table. The steaj was fine but I didn't like that the sauce was poured over the steak. I wish that the sauce could have been served separately to allow guests to put enough according to their liking. However the chips that... More

Visited Marlin Restaurant yesterday. Both me and much husband had pepper steaks which turned out to be really nice. Service was good though at first sight the atmosphere seemed odd and a kinda worn out. I'd highly recommend to try it if you like steaks as much as I do.

Located in Zambia Club, it is a nice place to take one's team. Slightly cramped for place and noisy, but that adds to the atmosphere. The pepper steak was excellent. Chinese fusion cuisine also seemed good. Desert options were limited (just ice cream)...
