Absolute can't-miss if you're in Victoria Falls. We did the 7-course tasting menu and it was simply outstanding. Each course comes with its own wine pairing if you select that option. I doubt you can find better value for money anywhere else in the world...More

An absolute gastronomic treat. One does not get to experience this kind of fine dining often these days. I felt quite underdressed for the experience. (although had the required collar, longs and shoes on) My concerns that the 7 courses would not satisfy my hunger...More

We went to the hotel for high tea. Worth the visit, nice relaxing tea, with a view of the Victoria Falls bridge and some warthogs munching on the lawn.

Great location. Good food, Friendly efficient service. The piano player had a limited repertoire. I think 'Lady in Red' was his favourite. Would definitely recommend it though. Pays to book in advance.

This looked the best value when I booked to go Victoria Falls and the experience was great, all trips can be arranged and Thomas will drive you all over town and pick you up

This is probably best value for money I have experienced in fine dining around the world. The setting is one of a kind - early 20 century British colonial- well maintained but not having lost its character. The food - we had 7 course tasting...More

This was one of our highlights during our recent Africa trip. The service is impeccable with food to match. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here and would recommend that you visit this restaurant during your stay in Victoria Falls,

Didn't eat in the restaurant but thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea on the terrace outside with a view of Victoria Fall Bridge and the mist from Victoria Falls rising behind it. Served from 3PM in afternoon toll 5 PM.

No visit to Victoria Falls is complete without having experienced a slap up dinner in the Livingston room at the Victoria falls hotel. Although the dinner could be pricey this is an experience not to be missed. Not only was the service impeccable but the...More

Joined our 4 English guests for dinner in the Livingstone room. All 6 of us decided to try the "Degustation menu", a 7 course meal for $45 per person that can be paired with wines for an extra $35 per person. We chose the menu...More

yes there is a dress code - classic casual is fine, for the men, button-up shirts and trousers with shoes. Ladies wear something dressy. No need for formal wear, but if you have it with you, now is your chance :)

As already stated, you can purchase the seven course dinner with wine pairings for USA $80. In Large US cities this would be well over $100. I recommend dressing up a bit and enjoy the experience of piano music, fine food... More

My wife and I didn't go cheap, we did the full course meal along with some very fine wine. All together, including probably a 20% tip, we paid $295 USD in total. It was well worth it. (circa June 2016)
