If you love food this is not your place. Just sit down order a beer or two and leave to eat somewhere else.

Conveniently located on MASA Square directly opposite the back entrance of the MASA Hotel. Food and drink of a standard one would expect from a chain. Very friendly staff. Busiest of the restaurants on the square so quite vibey.

Good for dinner and drinks with friends. First day i had pizza it came just the way i like it and beauty is you can make your own pizza rather than choose... More

Having been to the place a couple of times, I got a different feel on a Sunday, they have a jumping castle pitched so you can enjoy your meal/drinks whilst the kids have fun. Service was exceptional.

Nice clean restaurant with good dishes but service can be slow. It has a very relaxed atmosphere. Would not recommend if you don't have some time to spend

This restaurant is situated near the hotel and offers good portion sizes combined with the opportunity to sit outside. I had chicken stirfry that was tasty and offered a good, substantial mean. It was lovely to sit outside, sheltered from the sun, but still being able to enjoy the outdoors. A nice, vibey place for a meal while in Gaborone

This restaurant is located in the court yard of the Masa square hotel. It was the weekend but I imagine it can get business during the day with office workers. First thing you hits you is the great outdoor deck. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of choices on the menu. I had the half chicken and fries. The... More
