I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the friendly staff. Their service was excellent and they made you feel like you were a valued friend. Their food was well presented and reasonably priced. I would recommend this cafe to my friends for a lunch or coffee.

Good cappuccino but disappointed with toasted chicken mayo - dry and dark chicken only helped due to mayonnaise - thus can recommend coffee but not the sandwich!

When in Harare I am often fortunate enough to be taken to places by the locals. Today it was lunch at the Pistachio Cafe & Restaurant. I had been here previously and its always a nice menu and a good vibe. This is a staple. It has every right to be. Who knows I may be back tomorrow!

Pleasant spot well situated, service can be slow at times and staff depends who you get are unhelpful. The food presentation is charming, sometimes looks to good to eat, and at times is skimped on what is on the menu but that is bound to happen from time to time. Pleasant atmosphere and a great meeting point at Sam Levi's... More

Nice outdoor restaurant in the heart of Sam Levy mall in Harare! It's not my favorite eatery because it's right in the mist of busy shoppers. It is ideal for people watching and the food and price is good.

I met a friend at Pistachio for breakfast as we had previously met for coffee and decided to try out their breakfast menu. We both had omelettes and they were possibly the best that I have had. They were fluffy and very tasty and with a couple of cappuccinos were the perfect choice. We will certainly be back to try... More

Pistachios is always such a pleasant experience and the food is always fresh, creative and tasty. I especially love me some lemon loaf and savory muffins. Wintertime, it may be worthwhile if they invested in infrared heaters as it does get rather chilly in Harare and the cold dampens the experience. Other than that, it's a lovely little café and...
