Restaurant details
Reviewed July 17, 2018

After I found out that the Bulawayo Club’s restaurant was closed for the evening due to a private function, this eatery was recommended by the front desk as one of the better ones in town. Located a few blocks east of Main Street on 12th Avenue in a fairly nondescript brick building, the restaurant consists of two main open dining rooms and a curtained bar area. I ate at the latter. The menu consists of the usual steakhouse fare with chicken and fish options along with a variety of sides and salads, with most everything divided into “cowboy” and “cowgirl” portion sizes. As I hadn’t eaten that day I chose to indulge a bit, diving in with a large plate of onion rings, Greek salad, a double portion of steak, and a bottle of South African red wine. The service at the bar was slick, the food was decent, and the owner stopped several times during my meal to check-in and at the end to chat a bit about the World Cup, Zimbabwe politics, and the restaurant industry. An overall positive experience and recommended for a good lunch or dinner.

The Cattleman is definitely "the place" to get a great Zimbabwean steak. Sunday roasts are excellent with a wonderful variety of fresh veg, roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Great atmosphere and friendly staff

The food was good and customer service was exceptional. We had issues with our international payment card and they let us go to pay the next day.
