“Good food, nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The restaurant is very good, the food very good, tasty but surely less in quantity for the price that you pay..
Further since its is always overbooked, its important to seek a prior reservation..

“Not What Was Expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Was expecting great things. The service was poor. An elderly Lady who walks with a stick had to pull out her own chair even with three staff around. Drinks had to be asked for, 10 minutes to clear the table after first course then a 40 minute wait for main course. The starters were very good. Mains not so. The chips on 2 plates were RAW. Do not think fried just pre cooked, wrong sauces served, a sauce put on a dish when specifically asked for as a side not on the dish. Cream with desert was sour. When informed about the chips the comment from management was " oh but they are one of our best features" and no action taken. For the prices they are charging it was unacceptable. Will not be back or recommending them to anyone.

“What a hidden treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Three of us had lunch yesterday at Alo Alo, our first visit - it is hidden away behind a shopping complex, but what a hidden gem - exquisite gardens, stunning service and an awesome menu. A breath of fresh air in Harare and will become a permanent fixture on our eating out calendar when we are in Harare. WOW and well done guys

“Not what it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Although the menu appears to be more extensive than what I remember, the finesse is lacking. Starters were super (quite small considering the price!) but main course left us disappointed.
