A refreshingly different menu from the usual steak and ribs type offerering of most restaurants. The décor and ambience is great, even though we were the only table on a Monday night. Service of course was then efficient, though product knowledge of the menu and drinks was not very good. Waitress did not know the difference between whiskey and brandy. Location, I think was chosen on purpose to bring that local flavour to the French menu. Spelling on menu needs to be edited.

One of the best chefs in Botswana. The food is superb, French style with an added Botswana twist. Service is great and by far better than most restaurants here. Décor and atmosphere makes you feel like you are in real little French restaurant. A must for anyone that loves good food! Well done Lorraine!!

The locations is not ideal, but it worth it, the food is really good and fresh, the French pastries are a must to try. The service is great, the always have French music playing in the background, it's a rusty-chic kind of place.

There has been a huge improvement since it was newly opened. The menu has expanded and is now full of exciting dishes at a reasonable price. Of course garlic has pride of place just to make sure you know you are in a French restaurant. I had trout with almond sauce and it was absolutely delicious. A selection of French wines are available at a very high price. Perhaps OK in euros, but they are seven times the price of a comparable South African wine. This is one of the best restaurants in Gaborone now, and is a compliment to the owners.

Lorraine's is truly something special in Gaborone. The service is outstanding, from welcome to good bye, with small touches that make the customer feel special. Food is authentic and flavours are great, we had Foie gras, French onion soup, Fondue and the Lamb chops (No space for dessert..). Although it is not cheap, the portions are generous and they are using quality ingredients.. Still value for money!

Well done and keep it up! Great to have such a high quality experience in Gabs!
