This is a French bistro and they have a good wine variety. The food has always been great each time I've been there since they were at their old establishment. I had an amazing dinner last night though I'd say the lamb and white bean...More

One of the best restaurants in Botswana. The food is amazing & the service is great. It’s very cozy & I highly recommend.

Love the new venue. Recently relocated to the Fairscape Precinct Lorraine's is conveniently located near Riverwalk but out of the shopping centre vibe. No TV with blaring sports. Just a beautiful meal with friendly. Our little taste of France

Menu and food is very good. Service is decent. Location is awful, especially on weekends due to the close proximity of a bottle store and tavern. Relocation would do this hidden gem wonders.

From outside and the neighbour it looks a bit sketchy, but once you enter it is like you step into a little corner of France. The atmosphere was really relaxing and the French music in the background. It was a bit hot inside but bearable....More

Response from Simon L | Reviewed this property |
The menu is predominantly classical french (Smoked trout, foie gras, confit de canard, galette, etc), if you give them a call or e-mail them, then they will send it to you.
