“Great Food as Usual”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Remember if you don't book, expect a wait.

But the food is good as usual. The steaks are recommended as well as the Chicken curry. Bit pricey but well worth the visit to the Lusaka Club.

Good Colonial vibe, and the decor is dated, but that is what gives it the feel and makes the visit all the more fun.

“JJB”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great experience. One of the best steaks you will ever have! Reputation for the best pepper steak ever but garlic steak also very good. Very good value for money.You definately need to reserve a table if you want to visit, the place is always packed.

“Where the locals mingle with expats!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

You have to book if you do not want to wait for a table. That's the first good sign of a busy restaurant. I have been to the Marlin a number of times and it has been consitently good! The steaks are the best in town - the only decision you have to make is which sauce to have with your steak of choice, done the way you want it.
