Food was excellent, wonderful view. Close to the Zipline and bungy jump area. You could watch the people jump from the restaurant. We Zipline after lunch. Service was okay- the food and atmosphere were superb!

Went on spec and managed to get a table. The tables with view had gone but the rest of the place does not disappoint. Lovely food, fabulous view. A few ferrel children but overall excellent

3rd visit to Lookout Cafe. Lovely food, lovely staff. Watching the zip line and swing participants was great. The restaurant is very well presented and the view over the Gorge is really nice. Next trip we will visit at sunset as you really cannot beat African sunsets.

We went here for our first and last night on a tour of Zimbabwe and Botswana. My wife had seen it on TripAdvisor. We got very lucky the first night that they had a table available for dinner - make sure to book! We returned because it was too good a view not to go back! I would recommend trying to get there 30-60 minutes before sunset - because once the sun goes down it is pitch black! The view of the stars is still great, but I'm not sure it would quite as appealing without the evening/sunset view. The food was great, the wine lovely and the staff very friendly.

A stunning and contemporary restaurant with truly awesome views of the river and bridge to Zambia. A large very stylish affair with lots of 'front of house' seating to enjoy the spectacular views. The restaurant is clearly very popular and if you want a terraced view, booking a table might be a good idea. I was there at a busy lunch and still got seated okay. However those requiring the best seats might benefit from booking a table. Great views great service and well worth a visit when you are in town.

Stunning view. Came just for a drink but have a feeling service would be seriously slow if you ordered a meal when it was busy. I had to attract the attention of the waiter several times to order a drink despite the place being pretty empty. But that aside don’t miss coming here. The view is fantastic.

We chose The Wildhorizons Lookout Cafe as our breakfast stop after our sunrise walk through Mosi-Oa-Tunya Victoria Falls park. The Lookout Cafe is a short walk from the Falls and is well worth it. The views of the gorge are stunning. The breakfasts are well cooked, plentiful and very tasty. Recommended for both the food and views!

After touring Victoria Falls it was time for cap off dinner. This was a highly recommended place. You do need to get there before it gets to dark to get a great view of the gorge. If you get the right seats you are looking over and down into the gorge. The staff are pleasant and attentive. The food decent. Its more about the location than the food. You need to either drive yourself here or get a taxi from your Victoria Falls hotel like we did it.

Beautiful view, great food! It’s a little bit pricier than other restaurants in Victoria Falls, but you’re really paying for the incredible view. Staff was helpful. I had an issue with my order, but they were quick to resolve it. Would recommend!

It is impossible to say what the best part about this place is, is it the location, the view, the atmosphere, the staff or the food! What an incredible place, it really is amazing, the staff were so welcoming and helpful even though we did not have a booking and really went above and beyond. The food was so tasty and of course the views are beautiful. Favourite place in Vic Falls!

Brilliant little cafe - we were recommended it by our hotel for a breakfast with a view, and it was so good we returned for an evening meal. You won’t get a better view with your food & drinks anywhere else in Victoria Falls. The food was amazing, and very reasonably priced. Great cocktails too. The staff were brilliant - thank you Charity and Freelance for looking after us so well. Please give this place a try - you can thank me later.

I came here after a Zambezi River sunset cruise, dropped off by the van, and was so pleased by my choice. It was a bit too late and dark for the best views of the river and falls but the food more than made up for that. Bream fresh from the river, poached in butter and lemon, absolutely extraordinary. Because it was early evening, most of the daytime tourist trade has come and gone...a huge space to myself to eat and enjoy....set in the National Park. One does have to ask them when finished to call a taxi, since walking through the Park at night is not considered wise. Not the humans to worry about but the animals! Real animals! Worth it.
