Hilary runs a fabulous friendly restaurant with very delicious healthy food. They are not open for dinner but do great breakfasts and healthy salady type lunches. All her ingredients are lovely and fresh and everything very well presented. It is a short walk from the airport so easy to get to. Her home made lemon juice is the best and... More

The food is the best I had on my one month trip in africa. The salad dressing is amazing and you can buy it home! Use a gps map like google or maps.me to find it because taxi drivers may not find it, and the signs are poor. It is in a back alley sort of. You can probably ask... More

The food was great and the lady very nice. Nice smile just like the photo. She made a home made lemonade with soda water that was very refreshing and the salad dish I had with curry was a nice little collection of salads - just the right amount for a light lunch.

Go to Hilary's for the best breakfast in Maun. Very friendly and the food is great. It was a bit fiddly to find, but was well worth the effort.

I was there for lunch, what a lovely experience! Nicely located under shady trees with a standard menu and daily specials. I had a chilled spinach & cumin soup with whole wheat bread, it was divine, so were the home made chocolate brownies. Reasonable priced & quick service. I will be back for sure and can recommend for sure. Thank... More

We enjoyed sitting outside with a good cup of coffee and a yummy breakfast. The staff was warm and friendly. Our only problem was not due to them. Our cab driver couldn't find them---they are located on a side road and Maun had removed their signs. It was the perfect place to meet up with our safari guide and a... More

Have been using Hilary's for many years and am never disappointed. There is always a daily specials board with something new to try and the menu caters for all. The home made lemonade is a must try and the home made bread is awesome. If Hilary is in work she always has time to chat to you. Worth a visit

A warm, and cozy restaurant. We had a healthy European style quick lunch menu, all very healthy and homemade. The staff was nice, and the place has a continuous flow of customers.

We have eaten here several times now and will be back. Lovely food, good prices, friendly staff, and not we were well shaded from the hot sun. Huge portions! Have only managed breakfast here so far but the lunch food smells wonderful. We will be bringing our groups back with us in 2017.
