This restaurant serves very good quality tasty food. I had the 'pork meats' which was warthog cooked a few different ways. Nervous at first (they aren't the nicest looking animal!) but was very impressed with how nice the meal was. My wife had the fish which was also excellent.

Lovely a la carte menu, service was quick and efficient. Eating on the terrace listening to the wildlife and the falls in the back ground was amazing.

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and experienced both breakfast and dinner. We found the dinner service and food really excellent. Great setting . The breakfast service was poor on each day and we felt somewhat neglected. Otherwise an excellent experience.
