“Disappointed !!!”
Review of The Roan and Sable

The Roan and Sable
Ranked #21 of 177 Restaurants in Lusaka
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 10 - USD 15
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....

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 ,

Plenty of tables (though ours was in a very dark area - not sure if the lights were out?). We all had something different and most of us enjoyed our meals (can't remember which prawn dish my colleague didn't love as there was more than one on the menu). It's easy to find and they accept CCs.

I had two lunches at the restaurant during a business trip to Lusaka. Both of them were definitely tasty and the venue a pleasant one to visit. The carrot cake was excellent.
On the other side, further choices on side dishes (everything seemed to be contemplated with chips, very good ones I must admit) and removing the mandatory dressing from the salads could improve the options.
