“Charming site, warm welcome - a place to enjoy”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Maky's grills are excellent, and one can enjoy the meals looking out over Blantyre, or tucked down by the pool. Maky is an outstanding host, and makes one feel very at home. Trip Advisor doesn't allow one to review the guesthouse - I don't understand why! It has the staff, individual rooms, great service. I stayed almost a week there, and was very comfortable.

“Chez Maky is a must stop”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

Chez Maky is a charming restaurant tucked away in a lovely neighborhood. Ask to sit on the veranda for a wonderful view of Blantyre. Lunch and supper. Food is good, too.

“beautiful view and atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

The view in the evening and night time is lovely, expanses of lights across the city. It is very romantic. The food was okay. The wine selections were okay. The service was fine. I would return for the lovely view and an enjoyable evening. It was a nice place for a large gathering.

“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

The atmosphere is great its a place to sit and relax with friends. They often have live local music which makes for an enjoyable evening. The food is value for money though not remarkable. I would recommend it for the ambiance.

“The ambience and personal touch”
Reviewed 9 February 2013 via mobile

I spent a week at Chez Maky and I have no regrets I did. In addition to the restaurant, some accommodation is available and in modest state for one who enjoys being home away from home. Overall, the place is in a quiet and safe environment served by a wonderful team of staff. Maky himself is amazing and will go out if his way to make sure you are satisfied. The free wireless is a great bonus in Malawi, which is still rare to find. Once again thanks - amazing place and Maky!
