A good pub to have a few beers and watch the football. Friendly staff and good service. Food was good but a little overpriced, then again most places in Malawi are.

The food is very good especially the prawns. Atmosphere is excellent and the service is also great. The pub is very football/soccer orientated if this is your thing.

Having been there before this is usually our default for the first night. Not exciting but totally reliable and great fun. Don't expect fab food but it's good with friendly, helpful staff and reliable standard dishes

Nice bar with lively crowds especially for soccer lovers to watch on TV. A place for hanging out so to say

I had the local chicken which was not their usual fare. This is a pub with a small restaurant that was known for its excellent but simple food.

PORTUGUESE/MOZAMBIQUE STYLE FOOD Lovely for lunch as there is no crowd for the bar, would avoid it for dinner. Husband & wife team run this place together and the wife runs the kitchen. Food is authentic and always fresh. Barbequed chicken is always a favorite as well as the fish & chips. Would avoid eating there in the evenings as the crowds get a little busier and noisier. Price is reasonable and portions are filling.
