This restaurant is set in a beautiful location over looking the gorge, you can also see the bridge from there and some of the activities that Wild Horizon has to offer. I enjoyed the food and are there 4 times during my stay. Maxene was...very pleasant. He not only helped with the menu but booking my activities as well. The carrot cake was yummy! Be sure to try it!More

Look out Cafe is 2nd to none with service and view. It is a wow all the way round. The new decor and design lends itself to a magic experience to remember. Thanks guys for a memory to remember.

Attended a 75th birthday celebration lunch at this amazing restaurant. It had a complete rebuild after being burnt down, then sadly had to close due to Covid lockdown. It's just reopened and the food and service was 5 stars. A visit to Victoria falls is...not complete if you dont experience this amazing place with such incredible views. Pricing was reasonable too. We will be back!!More

If you don't visit the Look Out Cafe in Victoria Falls, your visit is incomplete. The view from this Cafe is just amazing. You get to see the gorge and people doing zipline or gorge swing. Their brunch menu is just the right one. Nice...food. Enjoyed.❤More
