We had almost every meal of our three day visit to Victoria Falls here and enjoyed them all. There was a great variety of offerings including more exotic dishes. The pastry chef was amazing. The best Pain au Chocolat that I've ever tasted.

We didn't book and the restaurant wasn't full. Depends what time of year you are going? Disappointing that no one bothers to answer your email.
