Firstly I too would like to recommend PORTICO for the classy touch they are offering us.
I am however dissapointed by Dr. Kolwe's comment on the kids games as I see no harm in exposing your own kids at a young age. This lack of exposure and appreciation of good life is what makes us grow up thinking that people of a different race are of a higher social status and games like that are a preserve for them. Don't shy your kids from the world now let them gain confidence through activities that are safe and child like, it'l take them a long way in life.

Is this joint under new management or is it under the same management as Wispers restaurant. Way back when it was known as Wispers there were these big green flies(kombes) that used to take the liberty of joining in the feast. My wild memory would always roam and I would always think that these horrible creatures would germinate in the horses poop outside and then grow into these horrible flies that would always take the liberty of enjoying your hard earned meal, are they still there?

My next complaint is the guy running the fusball joint just outside Portico, whenever you take a black kid to register the man alweays says that the classes are full but if any lighter skin comes through there is automatic admission...

I am sure a lot of mothers and papa's will agree with me.

I have to agree, the service that I have received at Portico has been outstanding. May the owners please give themselves and their staff a pat on the back for treating guests with the class, cheeful and helpful manner that we deserve. In particular I would like to name one waiter who offered us splendid service, that we ended up staying there much longer than we had anticipated. His name is Romeo. Please Portico, ensure that you give this man a standing ovation. If only we could find more Romeo's at all restaurants in Lusaka!!!

I agree on portico. The environment is very nice. I like their fire outside especially when it's cold.

But they should make their knives sharper, I agree with that too.

Dear Zambia,
I was very impressed for once!!to recieve some service that actually matches the price paid for that service.Portico Resturant has good service staff who are very helpful to an indecisive client,have good memory and are very polite and quick with bringing the meals.Their coctails are exceptional!!not watered down with too much ice,their food is absolutely fab!they have generous portions which leave you struggling to clear even atleast half of your plate..
KUDOS TO YOU!!keep up the standards and make a few improvements perharps on the cutlery,had a hard time trying to cut the lamb chops with those some what blunt knives..lol..
And Rhapsody and the rest of these resturants/bars should take a leaf.
