5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

What a fabulous restaurant, tucked into arguably the best hotel in Zimbabwe near Victoria Falls. We were so very happy we found this place as our experience up to then in Zimbabwe had not been that positive. But the Livingstone was so wonderful! This is a top notch, high end, first class experience in Zimbabwe. The menu was wonderful, we enjoyed all of our orders.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

When I first stayed at The Victoria Falls Hotel over 20 years ago, the Livingston Room had such formal dress codes (jacket and tie) the closest I could get was reading the menu outside the door––tough to pack a jacket and tie in your safari bag. Thankfully they've loosened up a bit––safari clothes with closed shoes and socks are fine. Philip the maitre d'hotel has been greeting guests for 43 years––an amazing man and a walking history book on the hotel, he's seen it all. The room is a formal (recently refreshed) classical restaurant experience that I would not miss. Wonderful food and wine all under the watchful eye of Philip.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

My friends and I participated in the 7 course tasting menu. The Beef Wellington was good, but the rest was best forgotten. A disappointment. We had much better meals in South Africa.

“An excellent formal dining experience.”

We took the time to dress up and enjoy this formal dining experience. The menu and food was excellent and the silver service food delivery very professional.
We had an excellent dinner.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

I would never have expected to get this food and this excellent service in Zimbabwe. The maitre went over the top to serve us well. It was a real pleasure.
