Dinner at the restaurant was fun for meat eaters. There is a variety of meat dishes. For starters we had good chicken soup and stuffed quail which were quite good. The samosa was nice but only 3 small pieces For main course we had a good tenderloin that we had to return to get the way we wanted and the... More

I have only had dinner here once- but it was delicious, one of the best meals I have had in Victoria Falls. It is nice that they feature local game meat on their menu. I frequently enjoy their monthly Local's brunch which is also great. I am hoping to return again for dinner soon!

We stayed at the Ilala Lodge for 4 nights, ate here each day for breakfast and twice at night. It's phenomenal by any standards, one of the very best restaurants in the world. Wine list is class and whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner it's of the highest standard

The food was very nicely prepared. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet in particular. The most exceptional thing was that when I lost an earring, sitting out at a lovely table on the grass at night, the waiter was determined to help me find it -- using the light on his cell phone then searching the chair: and he did find...

Went for dinner twice. First time the service was outstanding, and I had the blesbok which was absolutely delicious! The dessert, frangelico cheesecake was also delicious! Second time they did a good job. Food was very tasty yet again, service was solid but not as outstanding as first time round. Ultimately, a highly recommended restaurant where you're guaranteed a good... More

Our room booking included breakfast and it was outstanding. A combination of cold buffet (fruit, cereal, bread, baking, cheese and more) plus you could order hot food if you wanted (we choose the omelettes and the scrambled). Dinner however, was even better! An outstanding meal served perfectly. My wife and I shared a starter salad which turned out to be... More
