Only pay USD$15 per person + tips we can sit there for a while and enjoy the view. The service is great but the tea is average. They have a guy playing the piano inside.

We were there for afternoon tea and to revisit the ambiance of the hotel. Simple objective. The elegant veranda dining area overlooks the gorge below the Falls from a setback vista point of view. The excellent service was enhanced by the friendly staff, who were especially warm when they learned that my spouse had been there 52 years earlier.

Stepping across the entry into the Livingstone’s grand dining room, we were magically transported back in time to a royal dining room that might have existed just like that in 1890. The colors of the wood, the walls, the drapes, and the candle-light on each table reflected those of a Rubens painting. Our heartbeats immediately slowed, and we smiled as... More

My favorite for this hotel is the Sunday brunch, $25 per person and worth every penny. Turn of the century china and setting, fabulous service and old world charm makes this a sunday morning best bet if in Vic Falls.

Having experienced many top degustation/tasting menus around the world, I can highly recommend this one for several reasons. Firstly it is exceptionally good value for money. In fact it is the second best value I've evet had (after UMA in Barcelona) and that's impossible to beat. Secondly it is the best wine pairing I've ever had in such culinary voyages...... More

We stopped by for a quick snack on our first night in Victoria Falls after visiting the Falls. If you want a more familiar Western menu this is a good place to visit. We both had a salad and sandwich which were very yummy. The portion sizes were a bit on the small side, so not a great value but... More
