Friendly service, awesome staff, lovely food! After the walk at the falls we were soaking wet and the Cuppachino, and the way they serve it, was the cherry on top! Thank you guys, we will be back.

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.
