Nice atmosphere for drinks. Average for food and a bit pricey for what you get. But drinks absolutely a great place to enjoy yourself with the fires and music.

Lovely place. Lovely outdoor space. Nice band playing in the evening. The starter platter was really wicked with chilli poppers, halloumi and chicken wings. Main course was not as exciting though. We had a great time and would visit again.

Not as special as one would imagine from reading the reviews but still a better and cheaper option than eating in hotels. Staff are friendly and helpful, good portions, reasonable variety including local cuisine.

Called in for a late lunch. The place was almost empty as we were sort of in-between usual meal times. Nothing wrong with the food or the surroundings. Unfortunately there were a few flies around but hey we're eating outside.

I reviewed Cafe Zambezi a couple of years ago and wasn’t too happy. Have been coming here a couple of times invited by others and I can easily say I now love the place. Enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the friendly people. I can...More
