Heard so much hype abt the place when I finally got the chance to dine , I can say I left with a sour mouth , the surroundings were not as tidy as expected and the meal presentation left a lot to be desired ,

Description
The Roan and Sable is a perfect mix of Cafe & Grill. Smoothies, cappuccinos and perfectly grilled mature grain-fed beef cuts - a foodies paradise! Throw in some fine music events, early bird breakfast to die for and a super dynamic team and you get a welcome respite from the city's hustle and bustle. Plush couches, scatter cushions and stable-style wooden bench tables make the most part of the decor, which has been left to fit the style of the building. The Roan and Sable building is one of the oldest buildings in Lusaka and was once situated in the center of farmlands - the old Kabulonga farmhouse. Come see for yourself, the charm and authenticity of the place will leave you wanting more....
