Three of us had dinner here - great value for money, and all three of us were impressed with the standard of the food, and service. Really worth a visit if you're looking for no-nonsense food in the centre of town.

During my one month stay in Livingstone I think I visited Kubu the most. The reason for that is their varied menu and good food. They serve breakfast, light meals (the wraps and sandwiches are so good!) and dinner. There was something for everyone. Their coffee milkshake is highly recommended. Can't wait to visit again when I come back to... More

This is the only restaurant during our Zimbabwe-Zambia-Botswana trip that we came again and again for lunch. We like everything here, the pizza, chicken, beef, coffee, cuppucino etc. The staff were nice too. The bill is very good. The restaurant is next to a supermarket Shopprite and in a very convenient location with many taxis outside. The were tables outside... More

We were there in the afternoon for a drink and a snack. It's a very nice place to do this. The cafe is nice and clean, the personnel was very kind. Since there were problems with the store next door, they didn't had everything available. So we couldn't take the snack we wanted, but the ones we took were very... More

We visited for lunch and had the charcoal chicken with fries and salad. Tasty and good value IMO. Staff were friendly and efficient. Drinks were cold.

There aren't a lot of restaurants in Livingstone and we opted for this one. The staff is quite friendly but I ordered one of the specials they were running which was prawns and chicken, that didn't taste anything like chicken at all, the portions of the meals weren't as expected, a little too small for my liking, but overall a...
