We had dinner here for our first night at Victoria Falls. I had the springbok samosas and the tagine blesbok, apparently slow cooked for 6 hours. I’m adventurous food wise, and like all sorts. Both were nice but didn’t wow. The service is great.

The food was really good. The staff were friendly and the wait was quite short. Also, the outdoor dinner in the evening was very nice.

Loved by folks who stay here as well as visit the area. Indoor/outdoor restaurant is candlelit in the evenings and provides a lovely ambience for a relaxed meal. Prices for food and wine are reasonable.

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.
