“Potential for a great party venue - the hangovers speak for themselves”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Could only stay for a beer and a chat as the barman was so badly hungover that he could not even communicate, work the till, get the beers out the fridge! I take my hat off to him for even getting out of bed and coming to work! Though he may have just slept behind the counter! So if the staff hangovers are anything to go by, then this is a serious party venue!

“Given there are few burger places....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

The quality of the beef was good, but the preparation of a "plain burger" was very different from what I anticipated. I asked for a plain hamburger, no cheese, no mayonnaise. I didn't realize I also should have said "no butter and no bar-b-que sauce". The food was good but loaded with extra ingredients I wasn't anticipating on a plain burger.

“Good burger, cool bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Went here for lunch when we were staying in Livingstone. This place does good burgers and wrap! Its worth a meal out if you're craving some western style food. Also at night this restaurant turns into a bar/club. You can play beerpong and dance and theres are really good deals on the drinks meaning its pretty much cheaper to drink alcohol than it is to drink water! Its well worth a night out with people from your hostel.

“Fez Bar - Great Food, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

I spent a lot of time in the Fezbar and tried pretty much all the food on the menu. The burgers were excellent and far better than so-called 'gourmet' burgers in London, UK. I had lots of pizza as the smell from the wood burning oven was irresistible! The dining area is mainly covered, but part of it is in the open air which is nice for brunch/lunch. There's a relaxed atmosphere in the dining area and the place is big enough to enjoy an evening meal even when the bar area is starting to fill.

The bar staff are very friendly and welcoming and there is always a good selection of beers and spirits. I really liked the fact the beer was always cold, regardless of the time, or how busy it was. There's nothing worse than warm beer in a hot country!

The night time is party time and the place gets very full, but there is ample space to accommodate a very large crowd and the fact the bar itself is enormous means you don't wait long for a drink. It is a predominantly young crowd in the evening and the partying can go on until the early hours, so it's not for the faint-hearted!

I really enjoyed my experience in the Fez Bar. The food was excellent, I met some great people and had a wonderful time.

“Day or Night...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Well theres two sides to Fez… my main experience comes from the party atmosphere - spent 2 -3 nights a week here during my year in Livingstone!! Theres always cocktail specials and cheap, cold drinks and awesome friendly bar staff - love you BOXER!! The local DJ plays a mix of Zambian/Western music and Friday/Saturday nights its often packed with backpackers, volunteers, rafters and the local expat crowd. If you wanna bust out on the dance floor or try your hand a beer pong in a safe environment - this is the place!!
The second side of Fez generally comes the day after the first… Best burgers in town! Nothing like a massive burger to soak up a hangover! Best value for money - can't say Ive ever finished one! Also do awesome pizzas & wraps etc. Defs recommend it for a value for money feed anytime of day!
