After a tiresome shopping at Sam Levy village with my daughter, we accidentally spotted Pistachio as it is tucked on a corner, but our mind was at Mugg n Bean. What a beautiful cosy eatery. I loved the colour scheme and the friendly welcoming waiters. We had gone for tea but after being given a menu we ended up eating... More

Very popular restaurant in a shopping village in the most leafy & upmarket suburb of Borrowdale.Well positioned & an outdoor set up. I ordered a fillet steak & it was off that shocked because it seems well run. Hygiene has become a serious issue with restaurants in Zimbabwe because Health inspections haven't been done in about 15 years. A lot... More

I stopped for lunch recently and had a beautiful open faced sandwich that tasted wonderful and looked like art. I almost hated to eat it and ruin the display! Cheesecake dessert was also quite tasty and the prices aren't bad considering the fresh food and nice atmosphere.

This cafe style restaurant is probably the best place Harare for lunch. The salads are excellent and all the food is tasty, well presented and original. Although slightly more pricy than other similar places, it is well worth the extra dollar or two. A real favourite.

I was lucky to be taken here for lunch and thought it was a great choice. Really nicely decorated restaurant with a good vibe and friendly staff. Food and drink was healthy, fresh and delicious. The mango and mint juice was heaven on a hot day.

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
