The food was nice, if a little unimaginative for vegetarians. It felt as though it stuck to the European average menu, rather than offering anything reflecting regional cuisine (whereas there was a lot of local meat).

Thank you for your review, we appreciate any feedback and look forward to improving our menu to better suit our vegetarian diners.

We had dinner here for our first night at Victoria Falls. I had the springbok samosas and the tagine blesbok, apparently slow cooked for 6 hours. I’m adventurous food wise, and like all sorts. Both were nice but didn’t wow. The service is great.

The food was really good. The staff were friendly and the wait was quite short. Also, the outdoor dinner in the evening was very nice.

We didn't book and the restaurant wasn't full. Depends what time of year you are going? Disappointing that no one bothers to answer your email.
