“Thank you Tripadvisor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

I liked the fact that it is a nice, clean, sensibly-priced option compared to the outrageous price of admission to the falls. I also like the fact that unlike the rest of the (outrageously priced - did I mention the entrance fee?) park the baboons don't hassle you. I can only assume they are dealt with most severely.

Did I mention the outrageous cost of admission?

“A nice break after a long hot walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The café was a welcome site after a hot walk around the top of the falls. It was great to sit and relax with a cool drink and not be hurried when we had finished. Good service, nice staff.

“Wow, we loved our food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This place was a real surprise with the food being world class. We ordered a late lunch & couldn't believe how beautiful the presentation was. The food was fresh & large portion sizes. Just delicious and great value. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is a MUST to visit, we wished we were staying longer so we could return.

“Grea little spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Great location, an oasis of good quality food, cold delicious beverages and good service. Well decorated restaurant located just within the Falls National Park. If you find yourself in the vicinity of this great little spot defiantly stop by for a meal or snack, food is well presented and great tasting.
