“Food and service with a little bit extra”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Mahogany's restaurant in the Gaborone Sun hotel is an experience not to be missed and it is made that little bit better by the live but quiet background music payed on a grand piano.

The polished timber walls are adorned with extremely interesting pictures, all of which are worth a second glance and they are what help to create part of the ambiance.

The restaurant offers a comprehensive menu and having sampled a significant proportion of the starter dishes, main courses and deserts that are on offer I feel justified in airing my opinions.

As such I will say that all are nice with some being better than others, depending on individual taste.

No matter which dish you choose the portion is always generous enough for the biggest of appetites.

The restaurant has an intimate bar area which is well stocked to cater for all tastes and the restaurant is well managed and the service can not be faulted; it is always service with a smile.

“Needs improvement”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The idea is fine dining but something was amiss. Service and food was okay. Mahogany restaurant located in Sun Gaborone Hotel has a lot of potential customers/patrons so the management has to determine the missing ingredient to make this place an A-list or a must dine place in Botswana.

“Great food, slow service”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

They have tried to make a fine dining concept, where the wait staff don't understand what fine dining is about. The whole service concept was rehearsed and not natural. There is too much noise from the lobby coming into the restaurant.

That aside, the ambiance is nice, food was very good and it was good value for money. I would go back.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

This small restaurant has a great menu with an excellent wine list. The service was very good and the food exceptional. Entertainment is provided by an amazing pianist. Best bet, any of the Botswana Beef dishes. The ribeye was the best I've ever had.

“Great meat restaurant”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

My preferred restaurant in Gaborone, love the meat, especially the Entrecote and the leavers for first dish.
The restaurant is not cheap, but no more than other places around.
Very friendly staff, good service and very nice atmosphere.
