The stakes are not really good, but chips, salads and breakfast are very nice prepared. According to an European - the staff is really slow (but I think that's just the usual timing in Botswana),...

The restaurant has a very good menu. I enjoyed the food that I had while I was in Botswana. It is located within the same compound at the Peermont Mondior hotel, so it was convenient for me during my stay.

One of Botswana upmarket places. Excellent for business meetings and brunch with friends. If you are keen for a night out do visit it on Thursdays and fridays.

Description
Adjacent to the Peermont Mondior hotel is the News Cafe restaurant who blends the temptation of their original menu with the latest culinary trends. Food becomes art!Everyone knows News Cafe serves a good cocktail – good enough to win awards. With a couple of offbeat additions to the cocktail menu, there’s still the iconic Daiquiri, Martini and Mojito all in some new disguises.
