Food was delicious and service was outstanding. We went for dinner and across the road after about 6:30pm had the privilege of watching the graceful camel trains make their way home for the evening.

Take a seat in the old feeding house of the zoological gardens and be fed in style. If you're lucky, you may be treated to live music under the stars. Great for a romantic dinner... or breakfast.
