There is just nothing better than sitting on the terrace, looking at the spray from the falls and pampering oneself with a delicious high tea.

Very colonial and relaxing, the perfect way to end a busy touristy day with a G&T, the view is spectacular with the bridge in the distances and the spray from the gorgeous Victoria Falls, meals are also served on the terrace which is lovely, a perfect way to end the day.

We were staying at another hotel nearby and called in here for the highly recommended English High Tea, and we were not disappointed. We were provided with an excellent selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes which we enjoyed with the views over the lawns and the Zambezi Bridge in the distance (who can't see the Falls, only the mist) with...

Stunning view of the bridge at Victoria Falls spanning the gorge between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Outdoor dining with light fare, attentive staff and cold drinks. Can't beat the view!

All 11 adults and two children were accommodated in no time, with two beautiful high chairs brought for our delighted little girls. Our waitress was brilliant and extremely thorough, repeating everyone's order to confirm she had the orders spot on! Everyone's food was delicious and all served at the same time - excellent for a large table. Cocktails were also... More

The views are amazing from this restaurant/bar. You can see the spray from the Falls rising up over the gorge whilst eating lunch or having a sundowner. Once again service is great and the menu offers something for everyone. did not do the high tea as we were too busy with activities but I believe it is quite spectacular.

Food, wine and service were all good. Menu was varied and staff were pleasant. Booking was not necessary but advised if you wanted a specific table.

The view from the terrace at the Victoria Falls Hotel is one of the best I have seen. You can look straight down the lovely manicured gardens to the bridge over the Zambezie river and see the "smoke" rising from the Falls and hear the "thunder" of the waterfall. We had coffee here one morning and decided to return the... More

The High Tea at Stanley´s Terrace is a must in Vic Falls. However, as lots of people already seem to know that the audience is a bit mixed, to put it nicely. We turned up dressed for the occasion, whilst others came in their flip-flops and more-than-casual outfits. The setting cries out for some old-colonial-style-way but is not respected like... More

We were recommended by friends to visit the Hotel and enjoy high tea which we did with friends and I must say the Hotel is beautiful, the View is beautiful, a walk around the building just blew me away with its design, decor and history, Having been born in Zambia a long time ago but not as long as others,...
