the café is easy to locate. the food is very good. we had 10 in our party for dinner and everyone was satisfied. Most had more than they could finish. the outdoor seating in the back is the best. there is an adjacent courtyard where they have music/shows that is a must-see. do ask at the Café Zambezi when the shows are available and go during those dates/times.

We went to cafe Zambezi on a Friday at about 5pm and it wasn't busy at all. We waited about 30 min for our starters (Halloumi... Omg so so so delicious!!! And garlic bread) and then another 30-40 min for peri peri chicken and masala chicken. The chicken was all on the bones, so it would be nice if they could provide a wet wipe. The water in the bathrooms wasn't running at all, so washing hands wasn't an option. I do understand that running water is unpredictable in this area, so I don't blame the restaurant for that at all, but wet wipes after messy food you eat with hands would be a nice touch. We felt it was a little pricy considering where we are, but the food was all very delicious and we did enjoy eating there.

Outside looks empty but there is nice garden behind.
This is of the few restaurants I would trust the quality of their food. The service and the atmosphere are excellent. They offer range of Zambian and different African food so it is a place to enjoy the tastes of Africa, also some international food such is pizza, salads etc.
