Tried the Livingston Room for dinner one night, whilst staying at Ilala Lodge and eating at the Palm Restaurant most nights. Nice old school ambience but it was half empty, and the food was overpriced and very mediocre. Mushroom risotto was a watery mess, ravioli...More

We were hosted at this superb hotel, and we couldn't avoid enjoying dinner at Livingstone Room. Piano live music, absolutely charming staff, and delicious food (salmon and gemsbok). We waited for years to come here, also to this legend Restaurant, and we were not disappointed....More

From the moment one walks in to the room, you are transported back in time where fine dining is more of an experience - from the decor of the room, the formalities of the server, to the placement of the food. That being said, neither...More

A step back in time, with a dress code, the restaurant was a delight after doing touristy things. The staff was well trained and kind, the soft piano from the pianist was pleasing, and it was nice to get away from t shirts and sneakers...More

A wonderful surround with some amazing cooking. The staff know their stuff, especially the sommelier. It was just really nice to be somewhere special.

yes there is a dress code - classic casual is fine, for the men, button-up shirts and trousers with shoes. Ladies wear something dressy. No need for formal wear, but if you have it with you, now is your chance :)

As already stated, you can purchase the seven course dinner with wine pairings for USA $80. In Large US cities this would be well over $100. I recommend dressing up a bit and enjoy the experience of piano music, fine food... 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)
