Professional, timeous service. We hosted a press conference there which had approximately 30 attendees and we were generally pleased with all the provisions made during our visit.

Took 7 students from my school in the UK for a bit of shopping and then lunch in the restaurant. A really pleasant experience and would certainly visit the restaurant again.

When you just visited Gaborone, try Botswana Craft for its unique artifacts, hand crafts and different traditional tswana cuisines including bream (Fish). The service was good.
