For our last night at the Vic Falls Hotel, wife and I booked a table for a 7-course dinner at the Livingstone Room. Service was impeccable. Food was terrific. Atmosphere was great. Well worth dressing up a bit, to be thoroughly spoilt in this grand colonial dining hall.

My wife and I decided to skip the tour dinner and caught a ride over to the VF Hotel and have dinner in the Livingstone Room. Suffice it to say we know fine dining when we experience it, in all respects, this is one of them and it's unique given it's location. Dress business casual if you can, because the... More

Our family of 6(4 teenagers) enjoyed a special meal in The Livingstone Dining room when staying at the Victoria Falls hotel recently. The whole hotel allows you to imagine what it would have been like a century or more ago...a Grand Hotel the envy of many. We were pleased they had relaxed the 'dress' code as we had been on...

Had an amazing french-inspired dinner here while staying at the hotel. The Grand dining room is reminiscent of the old wood paneled rooms of old. We were in a group of 30 and had impeccable service and wines with our fine meal.

Only pay USD$15 per person + tips we can sit there for a while and enjoy the view. The service is great but the tea is average. They have a guy playing the piano inside.

We were there for afternoon tea and to revisit the ambiance of the hotel. Simple objective. The elegant veranda dining area overlooks the gorge below the Falls from a setback vista point of view. The excellent service was enhanced by the friendly staff, who were especially warm when they learned that my spouse had been there 52 years earlier.

Set in the magnificent Victoria hotel grounds, this splendour Druen and text you back in history. Built in 1904 is dining on a grand scale at a reasonable and affordable price.

Stepping across the entry into the Livingstone’s grand dining room, we were magically transported back in time to a royal dining room that might have existed just like that in 1890. The colors of the wood, the walls, the drapes, and the candle-light on each table reflected those of a Rubens painting. Our heartbeats immediately slowed, and we smiled as... More
