Food was quite good but it took and awful long time for the wait staff to take our order, then forever to get the food. My Breakfast came out cold, I asked to have a hot breakfast then had to wait, not very impressed

Stayed at the Ilala Lodge hotel, had 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners here, Food is excellent, service is mostly great (one night they clearly had more patrons than they could handle). Outdoor and open room seating has great ambiance, but don't forget mosquito repellent!

We didn't book and the restaurant wasn't full. Depends what time of year you are going? Disappointing that no one bothers to answer your email.
