“No 1 restaurant in Lilongwe”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The best restaurant in Lilongwe.The food is always of consistently high quality and the menu has plenty of choice. One of the nicest settings looking over the water in Lilongwe They can always find a table for you without a reservation. The staff are friendly and provide an excellent service. As we are long term residents in Lilongwe, and having visited here regularly, it is our favourite restaurant.

“Home away from Home!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Buchannan's was close to the hotel we were staying at so we walked there most evenings. The food was fantastic, the service impeccable and the host always warm and welcoming. This was certainly our home away from home. There was something for everyone, the place was clean, fun and suitable for dinner or a night of drinking. It seemed like "Cheers", by the time we left Malawi, as everyone seemed to know our name. Best burger I've ever had, fish was prepared equally well, corn cakes with salsa delectable and the steak kebabs prepared to perfection! What a great place to go - I'll miss it for sure!

“Relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

A really nice setting with serene surroundings. It can cater for groups and is also ideal for a romantic evening out. If you don't have food on your mind, the bar area will meet your needs. I recently had dinner with a colleague ordering a "surf and turf" steak and chicken crumb. Both were really good, but the pepper sauce was watery. The waiter was also not attentive to the refilling of our drinks.

“Good ambiance, OK food, pricey”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant is in the middle of the Four Seasons. It has seating over a lagoon and lush vegetation. The food was OK, but prices were on the high side. Service was good. The Four Seasons has a plant nursery, sells plants, trains gardeners, and gives advise for growing plants.

“Beautiful location, service with a smile”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Located within the Four Seasons complex, attractive pools and vegetation around - a very good meal, served rapidly and cheerfully. (The waitress advised on which dishes could be served fast, we had limited time.) I'll go back there!
