Tucked away down a side dusty road near the airport (walking distance for anyone waiting at the airport and need something absolutely delicious), past a smelly septic tank, in a mall with a ballet studio and a gym - this green enclave serves divine breakfast and lunch to any tourist who may stumble upon this charming and quaint restaurant. We would come here again and again if it were open for breakfast - but for folks who have a spare day in Maun to shop - you MUST stop over at this place. The kidney bean and sweet potato soup was divine and the rare roast beef and quiches were amazing. It’s a joy to dine hear with the sounds of ballet music from the ballet studio next door wafting around you in this relaxed Botswana treasure!

Good breakfast, especially pancakes. The English owner is very helpful, well connected in the Maun tourism community.

I went to this place for lunch following advice from the good reviews and this little family restaurant in Maun didn't fail my expecations. The menu is a bit limited (3-4 mains of the day) but the quality is excellent. The food is a mixture of African and European. I had a Bobotie while my friend got the Avocado filled with chicken salad. Both were great. We also got a triple chocolate cake that was amazing! The place looks clean and has an enjoyable seating area outside.

Good spot with good, fresh and healthy food and homely atmosphere in walking distance from the airport. In a town where restaurants are scarce, especially good ones, Hilary's is well known to locals as well as to tourists who have done their homework.

Hilary's is an old favourite for Maun residents. The menu is always different and the food is always fresh and healthy. Definitely don't miss out on the home made lemonade and freshly baked bread.
