For our last night at the Vic Falls Hotel, wife and I booked a table for a 7-course dinner at the Livingstone Room. Service was impeccable. Food was terrific. Atmosphere was great. Well worth dressing up a bit, to be thoroughly spoilt in this grand...More

Had an amazing french-inspired dinner here while staying at the hotel. The Grand dining room is reminiscent of the old wood paneled rooms of old. We were in a group of 30 and had impeccable service and wines with our fine meal.

Only pay USD$15 per person + tips we can sit there for a while and enjoy the view. The service is great but the tea is average. They have a guy playing the piano inside.

Stepping across the entry into the Livingstone’s grand dining room, we were magically transported back in time to a royal dining room that might have existed just like that in 1890. The colors of the wood, the walls, the drapes, and the candle-light on each...More

Response from Douglas Paul B | Reviewed this property |
My wife and I didn't go cheap, we did the full course meal along with some very fine wine. All together, including probably a 20% tip, we paid $295 USD in total. It was well worth it. (circa June 2016)

No. If you just wear slacks and a button down long sleeve shirt, that will suffice. But you can't overdress either, so wear better if you have it.
