Description: The word Gaborone literally means it does not fit badly or it is not unbecoming.... Well, neither is Rhapsody's! Which is exactly why we now offer excellent food paired with beautiful wines to our local Gaborone patrons!Lovingly referred to as "Gabs", the Rhapsody's group knew it was just a matter of time before this growing City would be ready for a Rhapsody's all of it's own. Situated at the Airport Junction, Gaborone Rhapsody's is conveniently located for ease of access to visiting guests and local patrons.One of our favourite menu times is by far the Beef Espetada. This dish is definately for big appetites! 450g wet-aged cubes of rump, dusted with black pepper and coarse salt, skewered between bay leaves and then flame-grilled and served with garlic butter...Do you really need any other reason to visit Gaborone Rhapsody's?Perhaps our extensive wine list will convince you further, or our Rhapsodian Loyalty Card Program which offers our guests 5% cash back each time they enjoy a meal in our restaurant. Or perhaps, the Rhapsody's After Dark element of live jazz and blues will be the reason why you become a loyal Rhapsody's patron.Whatever your reason is. just do not miss out on Gaborone Rhapsody's

Gaborone still continues when it comes to steak
Botswana is the chief export beef producing nation in the southern African region but I can't find a good one in Gaborone
Rump Cubes in a skewer was tough beyond recognition.
I did not complain due to the time it took my friend to restore his very rare steak to medium as ordered.
I will not be going back

By and large the food here is good - well seasoned with some imaginative dishes. The main room, though there is outside seating too is well laid out and atmospheric.
The BUT - the service must be sharper. The manager seems very passionate and works hard but any decision making or service follow up empowerment has been removed from the staff. It takes ages to get things delivered.

Sushi must be fresh to be enjoyed. I have never eaten Sushi at Rhapsodys that did not taste like it was caught a couple of minutes ago. For a restaurant in a landlocked country where the closest habor is more than 1000kms away, there must be something right about Rhaposody's logistics...

Not all the other food is always brilliant, but the Sushi has always made me happy.

My only problem is that I like to have Sushi Sunday evenings and that Rhapsodys isn't open on Sunday nights.
