Decided at last minute to invite colleague for dinner after being stuck in traffic back to hotel for about an hour. Shown to table quickly and attended on immediately. First time visitor to this establishment - one choice chicken the other beef. Waitrons were helpful with choices. Both meals were well presented and tasty. Will return again.

Wow! This is really one of the best pieces of pepper steak I have ever tasted. And I am not exaggerating! Prepared on a grill plate in the restaurant. Grilled to perfection (I like mine medium). Tender, tasty and quality! Highly recommended. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing - I'd say average. Expected a bit more... but...the food is wow!

Have only recently left the Monomatapa, a family of 7 on a 2 1/2 week stay. We had 2 rooms, which were both comfortable and reasonably equipped. The beds are fine and sheets are changed daily. The rooms had an iron/iron board, kettle tea & coffee and a small refrigerator and a 14 channel TV. Any problems that I had... More

From the other reviews, Reviewers are confusing this restaurant to the brassiere at the same hotel. This is the a la carte restaurant. Very, very outdated French Cuisine. The food is poor. Service is good. Fine dining set up.
