We had high tea on the terrace at the Victoria Falls Hotel. A lovely lovely setting. There are not enough superlatives to describe the atmosphere and the view. The tea was excellent and local though it was tea bagged. The cakes and sandwiches were fine though nothing remarkable and frankly the scones left a lot to be desired. Of course with plenty strawberry jam and clotted cream and a view one can muddle through !!!! Our waiter was a gem and made the whole experience. He took each of our cameras in turn and took our picture with great good humor. The price was amazingly reasonable as well - four hungry adults shared one tiered 'serving' and we could not finish it all. Tea was bottomless. We had a walk around the hotel grounds and public rooms - just lovely.

We stayed 4 nights at the Vic Falls hotel and had dinner on the terrace each evening. The menu is more than adequate, the food very well prepared, and the service impeccable. Surprise, surprise, the cost is not a shock either.

Felt the price was overly expensive for the portion of food delivered. I had better at other restaurants in Victoria Falls.

Had dinner and lunch here - great food! Also after dinner, we sat and had late nights drinks. The staff was terrific about not rushing us out. Seafood and all dinner selections were delicious!

Did this as it is a bit of a given if you come here and we were staying at the hotel. Ordered the High tea, along with being very average and very expensive the service was atrocious. We ended up getting up and going to the bar to buy additional drinks and the staff member actually dropped a scone on the floor, looked at it and walked off!! Not recommended
