Had the pleasure of lunch and dinner over the 3 days. the waiter went out of his way to ensure during our lunch visit we were under fans. We couldn't fault i, lovely food and very relaxed. lovely to look out onto the gardens.

After having travelled on the Rovos Rail train & dressing up nightly for dinner we finally had our fancy clothes for the Livingstone Room....only to find out they've lowered the dress code to smart casual to accommodate travelling safari guests. Good idea but really this room/experience deserves better! So if you can get dressed up, do it. Make a reservation... More

We had our farewell dinner here. The service was attentive, the food was very good and attractively presented. I had the tomato and mozzarella salad and the filet, both good.

The food was good and an excellent view. The gas they sprayed for the mosquito`s was really not nice while we had dinner. Service good.

Everything you could want. Ambiance, food, service, a pleasurable experience. Historical hotel with the feel of what the "old days" were like.

Dining experience had never come in any better form. Arguably the best dining place in the nation. Taste continental, Oriental and a dash of local cuisine all in one place. If considering a stay, push it further by booking the luxury Shonge suite for the unhindered view of Victoria Falls bridge direct from your room.

Lovely soft piano music, soft lighting and impeccable service by friendly waiters, 2 choices of menu - A'la carte and Degustation. If you choose degustation... More

My wife and I had arrived at the Victoria Falls Hotel from a Rovos Rail trip. We have stayed here previously and wanted to dine in the Livingstone Room but did not have the proper attire. In this instance we did and did not hesitate to book a reservation. The Livingstone Room is a throwback to a colonial time where... More
