“Come for views not food”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

The views of the falls and bridge are beautiful from the terrace. The sandwiches were nice but the cakes were dry. Basic coffee is included and a small selection of tea. The food (even the coffee) was very slow to come, but the server was friendly and attentive otherwise. We had to pay extra to receive water.

“Terrace that face the Victoria Falls Brdige”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The Stanley's Terrace had a location facing he Victoria Falls Bridge. There were many tourists at the Stanley's Terrace eating lunch or having high tea. We could not make it for the high tea and lunch as we had tours everyday.

“Give yourself plenty of time here”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The Victoria Falls Hotel is a magnificent, world class hotel. Lunch, tea or cocktails on Stanley's Terrace are not to be missed. Take a deep breath and imagine it's 100 years earlier, enjoy!

“High Tea”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

If you have a few hours in the afternoon-go for high tea. Lovely view and peaceful surroundings. Good place to see Warthogs if you missed them on safari!

“Relaxing outdoor eating, with prompt service and a good range of light meals”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Just sit back and enjoy the wide sweep of the lawns, with Victoria Falls bridge in the distance and the mist rising from the waters below.It's a great way to eat less formally at this beautiful hotel, and you can even have an 'I presume' cocktail. Of course I had to try it, although it was more refreshing than earth shattering. The opening hours are flexible enought to suit the day's itinerary and the food is good. I particularly enjoyed the soups.
