Reviewed 22 April 2018

We last ate at this restaurant in its old premises and were delighted to find Lorraine's Ntlo-Maison at its new home in in the Fairscape precinct in the Fairgrounds area of Gaborone. (Fairscape is the four glass tower office block clearly visible from most of the incoming roads).

I had the escargot, the rabbit and a mango sorbet; my husband had the onion soup, steak tartare and the Crème Brule. We brought our own wine (corkage of P70) but were pleasantly surprised by the wide range of European and South African wines at reasonable mark-up prices (given the heavy duties in Botswana).

The service was excellent, we both had superb meals and my husband rated the Crème Brule at 8/10; unusually high for any restaurant across South Africa or Botswana, as this is mostly a disappointing poorly made blancmange.

A great evening and one that we intend to repeat.

Lovely restaurant with excellent cooking. Ambience is cost and welcoming. Only the service leaves something to be desired. During the evening the location can be a bit daunting as it’s in the middle of a business hub

The place where you find the finest food. The best for wine lovers as there is a whole variety. It never disappoints

If you don't know where Botswana Tourism is, you probably won't find this restaurant.

Went there for an early dinner to skip the traffic and unfortunately not the best we've had. The bread that comes as complimentary was smelling of old oil and when we did send it back no replacement was provided.

I ordered the spicy lamb and fortunately they brought a side plate so that i can place all the fat that came off the mutton out of the plate. Overly spicy and probably more settled for an Indian dish than a French dish. Not seen much of the mushrooms that they said was in the dish either. Very disappointing....

Not sure if the waitress understood the complaints but not much done.

Will skip it next time and go some where else for dinner.
