“Smecht Gut!”
Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

Great and unique. Gerritz himself is a treasure and so are his dogs. Great get away spot that serves authentic German food. The second time you go they know you. Closed on Saturdays to public as this is a big catering spot. A little off the beaten path so make sure you go with someone who has been or make sure the taxi driver knows the spot. Great spot and a unique experience in Lusaka.

“Wunderbar!”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

A taste of Germany in a relaxing atmosphere. Love the dogs who are part of the hosting crew. Great life stories from the owners. Food is great and service was as you like it. Good to hear a good German accent and the language spoken all around you.

“Not my first visit, and certainly not my last.”
Reviewed 11 December 2012 via mobile

There is a diet section to the menu: my selection was Canadian salmon with vegetables. Salmon was tasty, vegetables turned out to be sliced apple, yellow and red peppers, uncooked with tahini sauce.

Nice light meal.

“Great place to eat with great people”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Gerritz and Siri are great people and serve very good food. I have often eaten here and often use their catering service for parties or functions. they do it all and well.

The place is unique, charming and not your typical high end place. Un pretentious but great. The host couple are great, lovely people with big hearts. Pony tail (that's him) and red hair (her).

you can come for business, friends meeting, with kids.. all welcome and accomodated. we have often used it for watching football on his big screen (which you'll not notice until then).

did i mention that the food is nice.

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

You certainly feel like you have stepped out of Lusaka in the well kept gardens and metropolitan atmosphere. Great menu, good food and the service with a smile!
