Enjoyed a fabulous evening at Caravela, Gaborone with work colleagues - fabulous setting, wonderful atmosphere, excellent Sangria but unfortunately the food was not the best, but would definitely go again for the overall experience.

Always enjoy going there, particularly during the power outages, as it has gas and a generator, so we don't notice the dark! Recommend the Portuguese food especially

This is one of the best seafood places in town! We don't have many of these too! My favourite times to go there are in the evenings when the place just reminds me of Europe!

A nice independant restaurant near the city centre. Good food including fish and prawn dishes. The Garlic Bread is dissapointing - but other than that I've not beed disapointed with the food here. A bit pricey and they may be getting a bit of pressure now that the South African chains are moving in en masse and raising the options and standards.

Outdoor seating is one of the best in Gaborone - for a start it's not in a car park!

Hard to find if you dont know where you are going, but sign posted off the main road. First left after the Kodak shop on Independence Avenue (south of Main Mall), then first right then first left.
