The decor and service were excellent but we found the menu a little bit restricted and felt that there was not enough choices.

The room and atmosphere are absolutely amazing and fun. The food is just OK and not what I would expect from some a grand hotel and dinning room. We did the tasting menu and it was interesting. The service is impeccable.

Just the Full Empire experience at this place, all of it. The Livingstone Room is where we had a private lecture, and it is quite stunning.

We recently stayed at Victoria Falls Hotel and dined at Livingstone Room. Unfortunately, our experience was average. I asked for gluten free menu options (including gluten free bread, which does exist as I had it for brekkie) and the waiter was very unsure of what...More

yes there is a dress code - classic casual is fine, for the men, button-up shirts and trousers with shoes. Ladies wear something dressy. No need for formal wear, but if you have it with you, now is your chance :)

As already stated, you can purchase the seven course dinner with wine pairings for USA $80. In Large US cities this would be well over $100. I recommend dressing up a bit and enjoy the experience of piano music, fine food... More

My wife and I didn't go cheap, we did the full course meal along with some very fine wine. All together, including probably a 20% tip, we paid $295 USD in total. It was well worth it. (circa June 2016)
