“Needs improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The idea is fine dining but something was amiss. Service and food was okay. Mahogany restaurant located in Sun Gaborone Hotel has a lot of potential customers/patrons so the management has to determine the missing ingredient to make this place an A-list or a must dine place in Botswana.

“Great food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

They have tried to make a fine dining concept, where the wait staff don't understand what fine dining is about. The whole service concept was rehearsed and not natural. There is too much noise from the lobby coming into the restaurant.

That aside, the ambiance is nice, food was very good and it was good value for money. I would go back.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

This small restaurant has a great menu with an excellent wine list. The service was very good and the food exceptional. Entertainment is provided by an amazing pianist. Best bet, any of the Botswana Beef dishes. The ribeye was the best I've ever had.

“Great meat restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

My preferred restaurant in Gaborone, love the meat, especially the Entrecote and the leavers for first dish.
The restaurant is not cheap, but no more than other places around.
Very friendly staff, good service and very nice atmosphere.

“Elegant setting, average taste of food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2010

The Mahogany's restaurant in the Sun hotel is nicely decorated, piano player entertains the guests, the waiters are service minded, friendly and attentive, the prices for food and wine are affordable. So far so good. I ordered a steak as recommended by a friend and a caesar salad, the steak was salty, and the salad neither looked nor tasted like a caesar salad, probably the chef was on leave. As my friend had enjoyed the food at the Mahogany's so many times it must have been an accident of the kitchen.
