We used to love coming to Buchannons for a beer- we were certain they were the coldest in town! Enjoyed their onion rings but we always felt a bit suspect after eating a proper meal. Kept coming back for the bar tho!

I had my first Malawian steak here and it was really, really good; tender and tasty! There are vegetarian options as well and the food is varied, well-cooked and tasty - reasonably-priced too. We were there in the rainy season and sat out on the veranda under umbrellas, listening to the frog chorus in the pond. Good beer, good food, really nice place...

Great food, good environment and good place to meet other expats...a must for the rugby fan with all games shown on weekends. Food a bit pricy but always top notch

Nice atmosphere. (Except the neighbouring chainsmoking table). Frogs making noise - but that's the way they are. Quick service - decent house wine and a very very good chicken cordonbleu.
I really liked the place.

Frequent visitor to Buchannan's Grill but mainly at lunch times on Friday and Saturday.
Great fillet steaks and wonderful salads during lunch hours but not so good during the evening.
It seem like there are two different teams working the shifts.The daytime food and service is great but not so hot on an evening. That is my experience for the main restaurant. The bar food however, on an evening was fine even if the service was a little slow,especially on a Friday and Saturday.
