Stayed at the Victoria Falls Hotel and had dinner at the Livingstone Room on our last night. Chose the degustation menu, seven courses beautifully paired with wines chosen by the sommelier. Philip and his team looked after us from the moment we stepped in the door. Every detail was perfect and the meal was superb. One of the best restaurants we have experienced anywhere in the world.

Had two meals in this beautiful restaurant. The staff were excellent and friendly. The food was perfect (Zimbabwean fillet steak wonderful). Great choice of wines. So good went there twice. Prices cheaper than normal UK restaurant and fraction of fine dining UK. If you stay in Vic Falls this is a must.

Nine of us are here and had the managers special that included a 7 course meal with wine pairings. There is a vegetarian option as well. The food, wine pairings and atmosphere was excellent. Of course, you need to allow time if you are doing the seven course. It took us about 2 hours. It was wonderful though! I would eat here again!

Situated inside the Victoria Falls Hotel.

We've been to some of the best restaurants in the world and The Livingstone Room would be on par for food and service with any of them!

Not pricey at all compared to international standards but expensive by local standards. We had 2 courses plus a glass of red wine each and the bill came to US$106.00. Silver service at its best!

The food was excellent, the surrounding decor very colonial African/English and even though we weren't staying at the hotel we had the opportunity to walk around the grounds and the common areas of the hotel.

Would highly recommend for a romantic dinner for 2 or a group of friends.

I dined with a small group at the Livingstone Room while staying at the hotel. The room is beautiful,the service very good, and a pianist played nice background music. But the problems started when I tried to order. The waiter understood gluten free and advised me on the very few options available. I selected the guinea fowl ( minus the pasta). When the dish arrived it was room temperature; I sent it back and then waited about 15 minutes while they heated it. When I tasted it, it tasted like plain boiled chicken with no seasoning - for $28 a la carte. The other people at my table seemed to enjoy their meals, but none had the same dish.
