The many times I’ve been to Rhapsody’s, I’ve enjoyed the service & the meals. The espatada & the ribs!

We were surrounded by plenty of flies and got bitten by mosquitoes during our lunch. When we did place our order, unfortunately, service was slow and delayed. This resulted in getting cold food with mo apologies. Very disappointing. BTW: this did not only happen once...More

I loved the food, crispy chicken wings and garlic grilled chicken liver, the service took about 20 minutes but that was understood since the place was quite full being a Friday evening.

The food is fantastic. When its crowded it does take about 20-30 mins before you get the food but its usually worth the wait. The atmosphere is great especially when the live band is playing.More

The restaurant offers similar fare as that offered in South Africa. The vibe is relaxed and friendly. Service was prompt and friendly. Prices are a bit high, but that is the case with everything in Lusaka, so not so shocking. Parking can be a hassle...More

When operating this is a pleasant restaurant with good food. It is relocating to the Polo/Italian clubs building in the Lusaka showgrounds and should be open Q1 (or maybe Q2) 2018

Good for drinks. The food is ok but standard quality. Service is quick. Some evenings there is a band that plays music

I had come here with a friend on a girls evening out before heading to the cinema, I had the chicken and sweet potato dish which I would highly recommend as a non-red meat eater. Prices seem fair in comparison to other restaurants in Lusaka....More

I had my birthday dinner here and was impressed with the service we received. It didn't hurt that the food was delicious. The fine dinning ambience was something special and is ideal for a lovely intimate dinner. Would recommend Rhapsody's any day.

Good place to chilled out in the evening. Safe and comfortable restaurant. Friendly staffs and the food are really good. Worth to try. Just beside East Mall Park.
