“High Tea in a Spectacular Setting--A Special Treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

This was our third visit to Victoria Falls and on each trip we have made time to have High Tea on the terrace at the Victoria Falls Hotel. We have never stayed at the Hotel, and find it a combination of pretentious, colonial and irrelevant to what is going on in Zimbabwe. Still, we go back for the experience of the High Tea with the wonderful view of the lawns and the Bridge and the mist from the Falls. It is a wonderful treat, if something of a guilty pleasure for the reasons stated above. The tea and coffee are excellent, the little sandwiches and scones and cakes are done perfectly and served with style, and the service is excellent. The hotel itself is a true pleasure to visit, so this High Tea experience is not to be missed.

“High tea on the terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

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.

“Delightful Dinners on the Terrace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

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.

“Good service but...”

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

“Fabulous views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

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!
