We had lunch here after visiting the falls and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent- we both had burgers. The service was great and providing towels to dry off was very much appreciated. Would highly recommend stopping here!

Having visited the falls we stopped off here for a late lunch. I had the rainforest salad, oh my word it was huge and my partner had the crocodile wraps which he said were so good. The food presentation was nothing like you would expect in a cafe more restaurant like. The price we paid was very reasonable, definitely recommend... More

We visited here and had a cuppaccino served on a plant of wood accompanied by a shot of Amarula, a amaretti biscuit. The combination....heaven. The service is fantastic, the ambiance blends so well with the whole Victoria Falls scene. It was such a pleasure.

After getting drenched from the spray of the falls, The Rainforest Café provides the ideal spot to dry off and rest ones feet! The staff are friendly and whilst we just opted for a beer each, the menu, principally featuring light bites (rolls, salads, pasta etc..) looked enticing. The place was spotlessly clean as were the rest rooms next door.... More

After our walk up to the Falls we stopped here for a coffee and a place to dry out after our soaking whilst viewing the Falls. The coffee was served with a glass of ice cold water and Amarillo. We then looked at the gift shops and went back to the Rainforest Cafe for lunch. We had toasted baguettes which... More

After a walk in the national park we stopped for a drink and a bite to eat! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had 2 wraps and the cappuccino came with Amarillo and was really well presented. However, considering you already have paid $30 dollar entrance fee, this place is charging in excess of what it...

We ate here several times during our stay in Vic Falls and were never once disappointed by the quality of the food and were awed by the incredible presentation of each dish. You have found a way to present even the most ordinary of dishes with an inspiring twist, Orange Juice just squeezed and not sitting for hours in a... More
