“Delightful meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

A near perfect evening in Victoria Falls. The Terrace provides an amazing view of the Victoria Falls bridge. I would recommend the restaurant for the atmosphere alone.

A table of four, we managed to try a variety of starters and mains, with no complaints. One main was late to the table and the waiter stated, "good food takes time"... The portions were generous, everything was prepared and cooked well.

“High tea a bit dear”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

By far the best view in all of Victoria Falls, old colonial Africa epitomized. High tea is a big attraction at this grand establishment but the experience is somewhat dampened by poor service, soggy cakes and sandwiches and a hefty bill to go with it. The grandeur and ambiance certainly carries the day but I can't help feel that a little attention to detail would not cost a lot and could make this the best late afternoon activity in the Falls.

“Unparalleled view overlooking the gorge with outstanding service and food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Nothing quite compares with the grandeur and stateliness of the terrace restaurant at the Victoria Fall Hotel. I had the crocodile Caesar salad, while my companions enjoyed the salmon bruschetta, a garden salad with chicken and a Greek salad. All were ample portions, fresh and tasty ingredients, attentive service and a picture-perfect view. Just a short walk from the town of Victoria Falls, and well worth it for the history, food and ambiance.

“Excellent high tea!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had high tea here two afternoons. It was very special, with a tiered tray of pastries and sandwiches and excellent tea. There is also a view of Victoria Falls bridge and the spray from the falls. Saw rainbows below the bridge both afternoons.

“Tea with a unique view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We tried to have lunch here but they were supposedly fully booked - nevertheless we came back for tea. High tea was served with all the trimmings and impeccable service, and the canapés were nice enough, I've had better and worse, but that's not the point - one eats here because there is a view of the bridge over the Zambezi and the gorges below. And that is unique experience
