Good spot with good, fresh and healthy food and homely atmosphere in walking distance from the airport. In a town where restaurants are scarce, especially good ones, Hilary's is well known to locals as well as to tourists who have done their homework.

Hilary's is an old favourite for Maun residents. The menu is always different and the food is always fresh and healthy. Definitely don't miss out on the home made lemonade and freshly baked bread.

Very tasty. Portions adequate. Service pleasant. Many vegetarian options. The only thing that bothered me was that, in this FUNCTIONAL AFRICAN STATE, my receipt was hand written and not fiscal. I would prefer if Hilary paid her taxes in her host country.

Please be assured that we are totally legal, and I DO pay all taxes. Hand written invoice does not mean tax evasion.
