This is one of the best places to lunch or dine as a family or on business . The environment is secure in the upmarket leafy suburban of Mt Pleasant . The food is good and the staff very welcoming. I must visit .

The restaurant has a very relaxing and intimate , classy , and homely feel to it all in one. The food is to die for! Compliments to the chef, the lamb shank is delicious and quite popular . The creme brûlée was lovely! The service is very attentive and welcoming.

This restaurant offers both bar and eat-out facilities that are of the highest calibre. The food is great, the environment clean and comforting and the staff welcoming. The downside, which maybe upside as well, is the distance one has to travel from town and major hotels but once you make it there the worthiness of the hussles is there in... More

We really enjoyed our evening and our meal - not quite 'fine dining' and I wouldn't say great value for money (Zim prices are crazy) but very tasty, lovely garden, attentive waiter. I would suggest to the chef that they reduce their menu - it's overwhelmingly large - and rather focus on doing fewer things better. (this is a recommendation... More

From my reservation call to the time I left, the service was exceptional. The lady at the reception, sad i did not get her name, was so welcoming and just pleasant. I came in holding a bouquet of flowers and she made sure I got a temporary vase with fresh water to hold them while we enjoyed our lunch and... More

After convincing my squad to visit Alo Alo, I am glad they did not disappoint! Staff was very friendly and patient considering we had a late lunch and left just before dinner. Generous portions. Ice cream was a considerable amount too. I did not really enjoy the started fish cakes and was afraid of ordering the fish as a main... More

Came for late Lunch at the new Allo Allo. Left disappointed. Extremely different from the old one that was run by a French chef. Please the decor is too colonial & not impressive. You must be old fashioned to dine here & the menu is the same.

My goodness, where do I even begin. Perfection at it's best would be the right thing to say. The atmosphere was amazing & Caroline was fantastic organising our wedding. The food was perfect & service was amazing thanks. Fees are affordable & portions are generous.

Caught a few drinks by the Chez Chex bar. A great place for an outdoor Friday evening with mature crowd. Live entertainment available at cover charge. Enjoyed Mokoomba band from Victoria Falls.
