Nice + interesting food

Nice place in the heart of Vic Falls town. A bit crazy -but nice- spanish owner, who helped us in choosing the dishes.. The cocktails are average.

We were 4 people coming for diner. The first thing you must know if you're going there with friends is that you won't be able to talk to each other because of the extremely noisy band.

My friend and I had the all-you-can-eat game meat offering. It was delicious and very fulfilling. The service was fantastic. The entertainment was amazing and kept us there for hours. Great place!

The menu looked pretty good but we received a lasagne that was not properly heated through and a tiny and expensive Greek Salad( $14US) which left me hungry.

Our group stopped here and had drinks and the African platters. It was terrible so when lola asked how it was we told her. She made a big show of saying there would be no charge but surprise surprise we were presented with the full bill. This place is ok for a drink but do not eat anything

I had the kudu steak tonight for 20 dollars. It was tough and overpriced. Not sure about the other food but I was not happy at all with what I had!

The food was downright awful, my bottled water was over 6 months expired and I didn't quite get the dance troupe that performed. This place gives Vic Falls a bad name. Awful awful awful!!

Nobody does tapas like people raised in Spain. Live music - loved it. Courteous and friendly staff, and an added bonus, the owner came over and visited with us, muy amable!
