Zimbabwean food is all about flavor and local produce. In Victoria Falls you are in Ndebele world, so expect lots of beef, chicken, fish, vegetables and stews.

As Victoria Falls is one of the top visitor destinations, you will find excellent quality restaurants serving food from around the world to eating at a local Ndebele house. Make sure you try the peanut and spinach salad as well as the beef and vegetable stews.

We have compiled our top 10 restaurants recommendation for you for your next trip to Victoria Falls. We will explore a few of those here and there is no better place to start than with Jungle Junction at the majestic Victoria Falls Hotel.

This will be an unforgettable experience. Gaze over the gorge and the spray of the Falls with a fusion of flavors. There is nightly entertainment from various ethnic groups such as the Makishi Dancers shown below. Lavish buffets at the casual Jungle Junction are but one of your many choices for the evening.

Dean’s Cafe is spearheaded by master chef Dean Jones, who aims to combine his love for cooking with his musicality. The menu at Dean’s offers fresh ingredients and flavors and aims to surprise each guest with personal care and service. In addition to breakfast and lunch, Dean’s has great coffee, tea and daily baked sweet treats. One of the daily menus included this amazing surf and turf.

It is all about the view at the Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant – open on three sides and overlooking the waterhole at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, the restaurant offers a unique opportunity to view elephant and other wildlife as you enjoy some of the finest dining in Victoria Falls. The A La Carte dinner menu includes popular dishes with a local twist.

The Nam Took Restaurant adds to the cosmopolitan cheerful mix of happy tourists and residents, who will be eager to recommend you to visit this local favorite. The restaurant, with a high thatched roof and log beams is dominated with brightly colored Chinese lanterns and local “Gwaai” pots, creating a fusion of the East and Africa. With an open viewing area and the sight of the spray from the Falls, there is a sense of space and light that you don’t want to miss.

A night at The Boma Restaurant includes performances by traditional singers, dancers and drummers, face painting and a four-course dinner featuring local cuisine. The feast begins with a shared starter platter, featuring specialties such as smoked crocodile tail, followed by soup from the campfire, before a braai (barbecue) buffet, which includes warthog steak, Zambezi bream, as well as an extensive salad bar, and finally a smorgasbord of delectable desserts. The grand finale is an interactive drumming show, giving you the chance to discover your inner African rhythm.
