Very nice place with a tasty cuisine and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to stop by for lunch or a cup of coffee once you are in Victoria Falls.

I figured this cafe in the Falls would be more like a fast food place. The food was really good and good selection of beverages. The only issue was the service. They only had 2 or 3 people serving a lot of people. Had to get waitress to order beverages, order food, see if food was ready, and get the check.

Good food at this restaurant inside the Victoria Falls Park, but expensive for what you get for a Canadian, as the prices are in US dollars. However, I got some very nice photos of some vetiver monkeys who dropped by to scavenge.

We visited the Falls in the morning, so were ready for a refreshment and light lunch. Rain forest cafe is perfectly situated. The "misters" kept the whole place pleasantly cool The menu was varied and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and efficient. We ordered toasted sandwiches, came with home made bread and were big, delicious and full of cheese. The iced coffees were also good value for money. We highly recommend this 'cafe' to all people visiting the breathtaking Falls on the Zimbabwe side.

The cost at this restaurant seems very expensive for south Africans and locals who come and visit this lovely site
