I have used this restaurant many time, specially when my family come visiting from the UK. They all love the place and insist on us going there. We have spent the last few New Years Eve's there and always had lots of fun.

Always a great welcome. Meals are really family friendly. The Tempura Prawns are the best starters. Steaks always cooked to perfection. Evening Game viewing from the restaurant when Warthogs & monkeys come to visit. Highly recommend.

A great place to retreat from Gaberone. A short drive from town where this restaurant provides cold beers and well prepared/presented dishes. The staff are outstanding. A great place for a family and friends gathering over a long lunch.
