Food was remarkable, fresh with a twist on the expected. We had Burgers and sandwiches three days in a row and each lunch was as remarkable as the view.

Informal vs the main restaurant in the Victoria Falls hotel. Fine view and the falls in the distance. Beautiful garden setting. Light menu primarily European/North American style. Not within evening/night walking distance of the other places to stay in the Vic Falls area, so predominantly hotel residents. Much more expensive than anywhere else in the area.

Visiting Victoria Falls was a long held ambition of mine, and it didn't disappoint.
We were staying at the VF Safari Lodge (lovely) but apart from the falls I did want to see this hotel because of the history etc.
The terrace out the back overlooking the falls area was just fabulous. The greeting by the wait staff, being positioned at a table (tables all well spaced out) and having your eating or drinks options pointed out was terrific. You feel as if you've gone back in time.
I had a drink called I Presume. Bit of a girly looking thing but, hey, what else would you order?
The lawns rolling away down to the view with Warthogs sniffing about, what a cracking way to while away a couple of hours.
I have heard the rooms there are not at the sharp end of what is expected at 5 star accommodation these days (can't personally vouch for that) but an afternoon out here is not to be missed. Fantastic! Loved it.

A trip to the Falls is not complete without a meal, drink or high tea on the terrace at the Vic Falls Hotel.

The service here is both professional and friendly, the waiters cannot to enough for you. I have eaten here several times and on my most recent trip to the Falls with some family visiting from Ireland, I had High Tea and an evening meal. The food and drink menu is exceptionally well priced. This is probably the best meal I have had in the Falls, if not in the whole of Zimbabwe. I had the bream which was beautifully cooked and nicely presented, our table of 6 had no complaints and left empty plates. The cocktails are also not to be missed - yummy!

Let's not forget the stunning view of the bridge which you can enjoy from the terrace, not lit up at night.

This place is not to be missed.

The view is great from the Victoria Falls hotel. The food was excellent and the drinks were spot on. Expensive but well worth it. The atmosphere takes you bake to the Victorian age.
