The whole dining experience is one to be savoured, so don't worry about the gentle pace of service. It's not just the excellent food and wine, but the whole atmosphere, and fabulous setting. Even if you only go there once, it's a must

We did not stay there but waited on the transport . We took great pictures of the bridge but because we were on a time line to catch a flight the service was slower than we needed . The people at the hotel were however very nice and helpful.

We enjoyed a superb meal. The service was memorable. Ostrich Carpaccio and palate cleansing tomato soup (served in a shot glass) were outstanding. The prefixe menu was one of the best meals we’ve ever eating and a relative bargain. The one-one wine pairings with the meal was terrific; one pairing was sufficient for 2.

Disappointing food, no vegetarian option. The food is overpriced as is the drinks. The experience did not come up to expectations.

Prices here are higher than other places but it is well worth it. The service was a little slow but not worth complaining too much. It was a relaxing time and the hotel is beautiful. You can walk thru and read some of the history of the area.

What a fabulous restaurant, tucked into arguably the best hotel in Zimbabwe near Victoria Falls. We were so very happy we found this place as our experience up to then in Zimbabwe had not been that positive. But the Livingstone was so wonderful! This is a top notch, high end, first class experience in Zimbabwe. The menu was wonderful, we... More

When I first stayed at The Victoria Falls Hotel over 20 years ago, the Livingston Room had such formal dress codes (jacket and tie) the closest I could get was reading the menu outside the door––tough to pack a jacket and tie in your safari bag. Thankfully they've loosened up a bit––safari clothes with closed shoes and socks are fine.... More

My friends and I participated in the 7 course tasting menu. The Beef Wellington was good, but the rest was best forgotten. A disappointment. We had much better meals in South Africa.

We took the time to dress up and enjoy this formal dining experience. The menu and food was excellent and the silver service food delivery very professional. We had an excellent dinner.

I would never have expected to get this food and this excellent service in Zimbabwe. The maitre went over the top to serve us well. It was a real pleasure.
