A very noisy place so not for the romantics, but the food was excellent. The music great and the staff helpful as was typical throughout all Africa.

Honestly couldn't recommend this place enough. My tour guide (aka the partner) who is a national, recommended eating here to experience African food at its best.
I had peanut satay chicken, choms and sadtza - pushed to eat with my hands it made for such a fantastic experience.
Mama was also a lovely woman and very accommodating - the place was totally empty when we went so we got very well looked after. If I go back to Zimbabwe and Victoria falls, I'll be heading back right away!

To begin with I cannot rate the food here although I did hear the next day that the food was great!
I'm writing a thank you and a sorry as I was terribly sick and spent my visit vomiting :( I had just finished the river cruise and after 21+ hours with no food or sleep alcohol went straight to my head. Staff were very attentive and concerned for my well being, checking on me and updating my husband as I spent over an hour in and out of the toilet.
I am sorry for the inconvenience I caused, I hope to return one day with my family and dine again (I now know abut the cruise!).
Thank you for your concern.

Good, interesting food, for instance, Hunter's Pot - a stew with local game. Friendly atmosphere and live music.
