We were very keen to try some local foods and here we found them! Cooked well and with a friendly smile. We were there late afternoon so didnt getto see the local entertainment that performed nightly. Loved the peanut stew.

Bland food and slow service. That was my experience. Small menu with ordinary food. No venison and strange combinations but nothing that was anything different to lots of other restaurants. The hot pots were lacking flavour, the bream tasteless and the chicken was just roast...More

I cannot in good conscience recommend this place. The service was beyond "Africa Time" and the meal was, in some cases mixed up, late, or not even brought to the table. The steak was a miserable piece of meat wholly uncooked to my direction. A...More

At the recommendation of other travellers, I was here with a group of eleven friends. Mamas has a very good reputation. I hope we only caught them on an "off" night. Every one of us was disappointed with our meal. Perhaps they were not prepared...More

The best place to enjoy local delicacies at Victoria Falls with great environment. The outside space is small so reach early. Enjoy dinner with live band.

No live music because of a power outage, so the atmosphere was probably not 100% representative for a normal evening. The hunter's pot (buffalo the day we were here) was pretty nice. Good place to attend if you want to visit an authentic African restaurant...More

For 'african' food you must give this place a try. Prices are tourist prices. Very popular with tourists especially at night. Most reserve beforehand for dinner. Live music. Food is good. Portions big. Satisfied with everything: food, service, vibe.

We were here as part of a group two nights ago. The food we chose was traditional African food. We have been travelling in East Africa and SA, Swaziland and Zimbabwe for the last four weeks. The seating was very uncomfortable and was open air....More

Had dinner here last night in search of some local cuisine. Thought we'd try out some chicken in peanut sauce and see what peanut butter rice is all about. Those seem to be a couple of very popular foods here in Zimbabwe. The ambience is...More
