We did not stay in this hotel but had taken a lunch here with the recommendation of our guide. Food top notch with finest and fresh ingredients. This meal is one of the best in our trip in Zimbabwe. The price is a surprise to us, as it's not high at all, given its quality and ambience. The place is... More

The view of the Falls 'smoke' in the distance was special enough, then the family of warthogs came wandering along the pristine lawn - a special moment while enjoying our lunch. As guests of the Victoria Falls Hotel, we dined at Stanley's Terrace on several occasions and the food and service was always up to par with a setting that... More

Despite not being guests at the Victoria Falls Hotel, we enjoyed a number of lovely meals at Stanley's Terrace and a few cocktails at the bar. The service and quality was excellent and the price was comparable with other venues nearby. Do yourself a favour, and ensure that you enjoy at least one meal here whilst in Victoria Falls.

I don't remember a terrace with a better view. Lovely sweets and drinks in an excellent atmosphere. You won't want it to finish. Even if you do not stay in Victoria Falls, it is an experience you should try.

Beautifully maintained , beautiful views to the bridge across the manicured lawns, with warthogs grazing on the lawns. While we had our cocktails followed by high tea, there is piano music in the background. The high tea was substantial. The scones were great . The sandwiches were a bit dry. We didn't like sharing our high tea with flies so... More

We went to the terrace on two occasions-for lunch and dinner. Both times were great. Beautiful views and friendly staff. Service excellent. In our experience-definitely the tastiest food that we had whilst in Zimbabwe.

We went for high tea at Stanley's Terrace at the Vic Falls hotel and would highly recommend (despite the whole affair and the hotel with the colonial vibe). With high tea, you have the option of unlimited tea or coffee and a tower of savory and sweet snacks (a couple of scones, finger sandwiches, and cakes). All the snacks were... More

We went here only for tea which was nice. All the food items, like sandwiches, biscuits, etc, were good. The tea was lovely as well. For me it was overpriced and then also just seemed out of place and a big reminder of how the English came and took what they wanted.

The High Tea is very filling... You might be forced to skip dinner after it! Lovely selection of sweets and savouries.
