Best place for a sundowner in Katima Mulilo but at a price. Drinks are more expensive here than other places in town but the view is worth it. Very laid back and friendly staff. The hotel restaurant is average at best with poor service and very slow. We waited more than an hour for our dinner in a largely empty and souless restaurant in an area that looks like it might double as a banquet hall with not more than three other tables occupied. The food was not as good as expected and I would not eat there again. They have such a beautiful location but the restaurant tables are largely cut off from the beautiful river views.
