A most enjoyable treat is to eat a 7 course degustation menu at the Livingstone Room Restaurant. The service provided by the staff is world class and the food, together with the proposed wines, is quite excellent. Only regret, they should be slightly more strict with the smart casual dressing code expected as we had people with tee-shirt on that... More

We booked a table for 2 for an intimate dinner and we were not disappointed. The host, a veteran of over 30 years service was amazing. The charming pianist and the Chicken Bus band added to the ambience. The food was to die for. The wine was extensive and we would happily go back. It was a truly memorable experience.

This is one of most beautiful rooms I have ever seen. Service cannot be beaten. Lovely pianist played the entire evening, which made for fun dancing. The food was delicious, maybe a little too adventuresome for me, but ala in all a wonderful experience.

This is about the best that Zambia has to offer. The food is amazing and the prices are not shocking. The wine list is VERY expensive though. The dress code is smart casual, so be warned about that. Book ahead.

Good service, patrons a bit stiff, a good place... Good meat and dessert like in the 70th. The atmosphere is like a travel to the early 20th century.

I and family visited zimbabwe in the summer for a family holiday. We booked this hotel through travel agent in uk. My brother recommend the hotel as he's stayed here before. We were not disappointed. Really felt like home. The staff were ever so kind and no request was too much for them. Clean bedding and food was great. Top... More

Location: Great room, with old furniture and decoration, as old palace hotels used to have. This nice location helped to spend a nice evening in a great atmosphere. Service: Very friendly staff, they are very attentive and well trained. Food: The food is good, but not excellent. Some dishes lack of taste, and the meat is not always tender. Overall... More

This traditional restaurant provides a proper 'old style' top service that is hard to find those days. The dinning room has been renovated and the staff are friendly as always. They remember the guests even after a year. The food was very well prepared.

Not as plush as it used to be but lovely anyway. The cakes were scrummy but not as elegant as in years gone by. Only one small pot of tea each. But of course the view an ambiance are the attraction.
