“Excellent Buffet!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

The food is excellent, with a very wide selection. Fresh ingredients, salad bars, cold cuts and hot plates, made to orders requests, and desserts are to die for. Live entertainment and friendly staff made this to be the best value offer in the town.

“A lovely walk through the gardens sets the stage”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

A lovely walk through the garden property of the Victoria Falls Hotel sets the tone for a delightful breakfast buffet in the open air. You can see the mist of Victoria Falls in the distance. Manicured lawn and statuary add the short walk. Warthogs can be seen in other areas of the hotel property, but I did not see any walking to the Stanley's Terrace.
Service was prompt and friendly. The food was wonderful, especially the fresh ripe mango picked from trees on the hotel property. All the fruit was fresh, fully ripe and delicious. Lots of interesting fruit juices from which to choose as well. The buffet had many choices along with freshly prepared to order egg dishes. Game sausages were on the menu as well.
There were no insects or bugs that I saw despite being outdoors. There were some birds in the open central patio area. Most of the dining was under roof, but open air.
Others in our group dined in the evening and enjoyed live entertainment. They also spoke highly of their experience as well.

“Great outlook”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Whilst the food was very good without being out of this world the setting was great looking outwards over excellent well-maintained gardens towards the Vic Falls Bridge.

“Spectacular View of the Bridge”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Everything about this historic hotel is very colonial, the view of the bridge from the terrace is so unique. We enjoyed our lunch which was fresh and well presented.
