We had lunch at this restaurant before our guided walking tour of Victoria Falls Park. This was part of an Overseas Adventure Travel itinerary. I had a stuffed chicken breast and it was delicious.

This was a lovely cafe, which served refreshing drinks in a beautiful al fresco setting. A welcome reprieve after walking over the Zambezi Gorge Bridge.

Even though a monkey swooped down and grabbed my half of the sandwich, the good folks at the cafe made me another one. We enjoyed our lunch very much. The food was quite good and the atmosphere very relaxing.

We decided to have lunch here after our walk around the falls. I thought the home made baguettes sounded amazing, so I went for the pancetta one. It wasn't amazing at all and there was so much fat on the pancetta. Also The baguette didn't...More

We were expecting a typical tourist cafe with poor food and service, but were surprised on both accounts. Good menu, even had halloumi, and friendly attentive service with a smile.
