We stayed at the wonderful Ilala Lodge for 3 nights. We ate at the Cassia Restaurant for Breakfast and Dinner on all 3. The food is superb. The staff lovely. The setting on the terrace amazing. Views of the 'smoke that thunders' during the day,...romantic at night. We cannot wait to return ! Thank you.More

This is a beautiful spot for a meal, with the sound of the falls in the background. The food was very good and the service efficient and friendly. The only problem was that we were seated on the bottom terrace - romantic at first but...it got very dark; so dark, in fact,, that the waitress had to bring reading lights with the menus. Once the menus had been taken away, we were sat in the dark and could barely see what we were eating. I would recommend the restaurant but would advise asking to be set on either of the first two terraces which had some lighting.More

In a hard place to find a good restaurant for lunch, we found one. Close to everything, in a lovely lodge. Nice views while dining on the patio. A true lunch selection and not a huge menu which made choosing easier. Of course the service...was friendly and efficient.More

A pleasant welcome to this very pleasant mainly outdoor restaurant. Good service and a delightful pianist playing an enormous selection of great music from different decades. The Springbok shank was outstanding, but the lamb curry could have had more umph.

I celebrated by birthday here with a couple of friends and we enjoyed a pre-drink in the bar then were graciously escorted to our table for dinner. Outdoor before complete dusk, you could some spray from the falls. The service was exceptional. Although on line,...the menu does not have warthog as an entree. The prices were moderate but on returning home, the credit card had been charged twice. I am sure this was an accident (I hope). Lovely placeMore
