The terrace was a great place for lunch or the high tea. Food was good and service as well. The view of the bridge and the mist over the falls made for a picturesque experience.

Tea with a view of the bridge is really a Victoria Falls institution, the style of the hotel is 1950s Zimbabwe and it is well worth a visit to see the decor and architecture alone.

I, however, had particularly bad service at this restaurant (I had lunch). My waitress was sleepy and, although I thought the menu seemed modern and International, the Thai beef salad had too much dressing and was poorly executed. If felt as if the hotel didn't have the right incentives to pull up its socks up (up and out of 1950s Zimbabwe).

So - to really get the full benefit; have a gin and tonic, or a Malawi Shandy on the Terrace, may be have tea, potentially have scones (consider asking other patrons about theirs are before you order). Take in the view and then go somewhere else.

This is a great setting at a beautiful hotel with a view of the bridge. It was a very enjoyable dinner.

I loved the restaurant because i thought it was reasonably priced with a very attentive service team. The view of the Falls was there in the daytime but I also enjoyed being there at night without a view. Surprisingly there were many biting insects which dampered the evening.
