Worth visiting

Atmosphere and food is always great. Staff are always friendly, service is a bit slow but not so slow to spoil the evening! Still one of our favourite places to eat.

One of the waitresses had an attitude problem, seemed as if they were doing us a favor. She totally ignored our presence. Good ambiance but negative attitudes will make you think twice about going back.

This was an unplanned and unexpected visit when I bumped into a group of friends who were about to go there - and I decided to join them. There is no question that it is in a beautiful setting with the water feature and garden and personally I don't think there is any question that you should eat on the... More

Food reasonable and service pleasant in nice surroundings. However, visitors from South Africa wished to pay in Rands and were quoted a very high exchange rate (considerably more than any other of the 30 to 40 shops in the complex) and when questioned explained that this was to discourage people from using it. Very strange that a restaurant would want... More

Waiters are slack. No welcome. Had to sit myself down and look for the menus as the waiters were so slow to even acknowledge there were customers waiting. Food took forever to come with no decent explanation as to why it was taking so long. Restaurant was empty so no excuse there. When our food came, after a very long... More

Excellent food, good desserts, and remarkably fast for Africa, too. If I had to have only two restaurants in Bulwayo, it would be Rooster's and 26 on Park.

We had a meal here on our last night on holiday. The service and the food outshone all the other places we had tried in Bulawayo, I will be recommending this to all the people I know will be visiting Bulawayo, The staff were very efficient and nothing was too much trouble.
