We ate one night in the Livingston Room, the 'fine dining venue' for the Victoria Falls Hotel. There is a dress code noted on their web site for this restaurant which says 'no tennis shoes' so I brought another pair of shoes in my luggage...More

We had the 7 course degustation at US$45 per person. We wanted matching wines but some of them were unavailable so we stuck to individual glasses. I was glad the sommelier was honest instead of trying to flog us wines. Marco was our waiter. The...More

My wife and I didn't go cheap, we did the full course meal along with some very fine wine. All together, including probably a 20% tip, we paid $295 USD in total. It was well worth it. (circa June 2016)
