We went here just to have dinner (we weren't staying at the hotel) and, whilst the service was very good indeed, the food really did just feel like ordinary hotel food. The prices, pomp and set up of the place promises much more than it delivers. The cocktails weren't a bad way to improve the experience.

I had otherwise very good impression about this restaurant, its only that the food was a miss this time. Lamb chops were so difficult to chew that it turned into a real nuisance + a tomato I got was a bit rotten I would say. Otherwise still a fine place - lovely deck to sit outside, you can also sit...

Large buffet I found difficult not to over eat at breakfast and loved the turkey and guacamole on a fresh baguette served with caramelized onions. For a restaurant in a better hotel, I found the food choices interesting, reasonably priced and tried something new every day. Staff are friendly, attentive and professional. A very nice change from lodge buffets!!

Very enjoyable place to have a lunch. The deck area is very nice in good weather and there is a lawn area where you can eat as well. The menu is quite good with some good salads and sandwiches that are reasonably priced. There is a more extensive menu for large lunch. The service was very good and attentive. I... More

Breakfast buffet was small, but it had some good Indian-type foods that were fu to try. Dinner was just okay and it seemed a bit pricy for what I got.

Last year I visited this restaurant and did not think much of it. I revisited some days ago and I changed my mind. I do not really remember the details of my previous visit (just the impression) so I do not know if anything big was changed. All I can say is that the staff was great and polite and... More

I really had a great time at the Flame Tree Restaurant. The atmosphere is nice and staff are really friendly and attentive. I had a salad which said "recommended by the chef", which I forgot the name and it was fantastic! It had green apples and beets in addition to usual salad veggies and had an amazing maple syrup dressing.... More

I found this restaurant to be very warm and welcoming, with very friendly and attentive staff. The food is international with some welcome African touches. The steak I ate here was one of the best I've ever had. There is also a little bar and you can get snacks as well as main meals. There is often live music, some... More

I have used this restaurant many times as a guest at Sarova Panafric hotel but it has gone downhill badly over recent times. The menu needed some additions to a menu that didnt change for years but they decided to change nearly everything and it has proved too much, as the standard has dropped. The biggest disapointment is the new... More
