This is a small bistro with delicious food. On a Tuesday night we were the only ones in the place for our entire dinner. Inexpensive; we each had an entree and we shared a bottle of wine for $40 total. I had the fish with...More

Have eaten at this restaurant a few times when in Lusaka working. I cannot believe it is not yet showing #1 place to eat in Lusaka. Fillet steak to die for, hand cut chips, freshly made sauces. If you haven't tried the Four Seasons Bistro...More

Returned for two consecutive nights, food was great, well priced and big portions. Drinks also really well priced. Not entirely convinced that the rib eye steak was actually a rib eye but the fillet was superb.

Four Seasons Bistro is one of those little gems you either know about, or you live a poorer live. We had the most delicious dinner a couple of nights ago. Delicious dishes like duck breast is a welcome surprise in Lusaka.

Attached to the city lodge, the Four seasons is run by Jamie Townesend. An innovative menu with daily changes makes this place worth the while. The Goat shank and the lamb hot pot are absolutely stunning as are the steaks.

We were at this place on a Friday night. The place had about 3-4 groups. There were some tables empty. As soon as we entered, we were told "the kitchen cannot take any more orders, as we are full". Cleanliness is a different story. Poorly...More

Wonderful and delicious food cooked by a master chef contestant; the best and most healthy we've tasted in Lusaka. Lovely service too. Can't understand why it's not over booked every night. Great wines too and very modest prices for the quality. Thoroughly recommend.

Head Chef & Owner, Jamey Townsend, follows the modern trend of 'sloe food' where all ingredients are sourced locally within Zambia, or grown organically in his own garden wherever possible.Our methodology ensures fresh seasonal produce that is grown & farmed in a sustainable & humane manner. No pre-processed, canned or tinned produce is used so everything that comes out of the kitchen is 100% traceable to its roots. Ingredients that can not be produced in Zambia such as spices are obtained from local farmers markets. We guarantee that only the highest quality ingredients are used in our cuisine.The menu has a European theme including specials that change on a weekly basis; and new dishes with every new season.
