I was at DV8 restaurant couple of times, it was famous with its steak before, when they moved to new premises, it's bigger than before but the atmosphere inside is not pleasant, bit dark... the food is not too bad, but I'm not sure whether they still have the best steak in town..

A wonderful steak meal in a bustling restaurant. Service was understandably a little slow, due to the popularity of the venue. Excellent steaks and a wonderful dessert and my family was very impressed too. Definitely will return as soon as I can!

DV8 was always the place to go when you wanted a steak, and their slogan : "Steaks To Leave Home For", still holds water I am happy to report. The owners have returned from overseas to revive this iconic restaurant and boy have they don't it properly.

The restaurant is situated under the new PicknPay Kamfinsa and whilst it took a while for the building contractors to complete the restaurant, it opened a few months ago and is fully operational.

The restaurant is much bigger than the old one, with both inside and outside (terrace) dining and a nice bar area where one can have a pre-drink lunch/dinner drink. There is also a TV and lounge area where on can watch whatever sporting event might be showing at the time. They also have live music on certain nights of the week - I think normally Wednesdays and Saturdays, which is very pleasant.

The food is as good as it was at the old premises, with a wide range of steaks, burgers, chicken dishes, etc. All the meals we have had here have been very good quality with fairly decent portions. The bar is possibly one the best stocked in Harare, including numerous brands of whiskey from the everyday varieties to very high end single malts and they do some awesome cocktails too.

Well worth a visit.

We have eaten at Kamfinsa DV8 twice - never again. The first time, the menu (and the waiter) promised 'baked potatoes with butter' - they were served with margarine, which was a horrible lapse of taste. The next time, one of our friends ordered their special 'Cordon Bleu fillet' at $25 - this was a piece of sirloin so overcooked that it bounced off the plate when he tried to cut it. The chicken was dry and tasteless, and their slow-cooked stew was watery and bland. What a disappointment and a let down from the first DV8 at Groombridge.
