Lovely place, but we almost didn't get to visit it! The security guard outside refused us entrance, the excuse being that the place was fully booked. On our request he double checked, and we were admitted. The place turned out to be practically empty, just...two tables were booked, and no guests arrived after us! The food was fine, and the had lovely craft beer from Okavango Craft Brewery in Maun. Restaurant staff was friendly, and the place is really nice.More

Charming place with a nice garden but the room was noisy, the pool not very clean and the food average. Also the staff was not very helpful in organising activities

On our onenight stop in Kasane we had a pleasent stay at The Old House. Such a lovely place directly on the River (where we took a 3 hour cruise). In the morning we did a Game Drive with gee. She told us a lot...about the animals and was very keen to Show us as much as possible.More

Like in many restaurants in southern Africa, the kitchen is completely understaffed, although wages are so low. I guess management prefers bad comments like this one. The title says it all. Food was good, just good.

Underwhelmed. Sports bar atmosphere. TV was on with a football game, bright lights from the bar fridge, basic menu, average food. Not really understanding how they can be Nr 2 in Kasane…

We were visiting Kasane and were looking for a lunch spot. The old house came up as number 1 on TripAdvisor, so we decided to go there for lunch. After seating ourselves with no waiting staff helping or greeting us, we waited another 20minutes before...realising we had to go to the bar to even get a menu. It was like we were invisible. The waiting staff bustled around but no amount of waving or calling could get them to come to our table. After 40 minutes we decided to leave and go for lunch somewhere else. Highly disappointing.More

Delicious meal. Good value for money. Quick and friendly service. We can recommend the steak rolls. Pleasant outdoor dining area. You can stroll down to the water for a river view.

Average offerings with the usual mix. Steak in the sandwich was extremely fatty. Busy & we got a table at the back where lighting was a little dim. Go have a curry down the road.

We have been to Old House before and we have really enjoyed our visits. This time maybe a bit less than before. Maybe Covid has something to do with it?? Not sure. We were a large group and informed the waiter that we would be...OK if the food arrived as it was ready. it is understandable that it would be difficult to serve such a large group all at once. The service was OK although a bit slow. I felt that the food was maybe not what we were used to in the past. My Steak was a bit tough, but grilled as I asked for it. The people who were most impressed had seafood. A surprise if you think of how far Kasane is from the ocean. Burgers and pizza were average. The setting next to the river remains great.More

We had some time to kill in Kasane and thought we'd get some lunch. The setting is fine, a thatched bar overlooking a garden, it's dark but nice enough. The service was also fine, not friendly but not awful. The menu had a good range...of choices and things sounded nice. The food... slow, so slow. The children's chicken and chips were bigger than the adult portions. The steak sandwich was bad - dry meat, dry bread. I mean, I can handle below average food, but don't bother asking me how I want my steak cooked if you're going to send it out leathery even if I say medium rare. The eggs and toast was completely cold. And the bill was not cheap. Could have been good, really disappointing.More

We stopped in for breakfast one morning and had the house omelette. It was the best breakfast of a three week trip. The service was good and the atmosphere is very nice as well. Next time, we will stay there.

We arrived at Kasane airport after a very long trip (36hours) to be welcomed by Rems. The smile on his face and the enthousiasm he had made us relax right away and our honeymoon started right then and there! Arriving at the Old House was...like coming home. Great room, very clean, amazing bar, superfriendly people and an amazingly fresh and nice breakfast. Highlight was our Rivercruise with Rems! Due to Covid we had to river to ourselfs and we spent 3hours looking (and finding) for animals. Topping it off with an amazing sunset! Thumbs up for the Old House!More
