Our favorite eating place in Gaborone. Great food and service. Being vegetarian was not a problem either. The evening entertainment is tasteful and enjoyable.

Staying here for 2 weeks i got to see the inconsistency in service. Sometimes its good sometimes bad depending on the person and mood. Tried different pizza's as the service, good and bad. Surprisingly the staff do not differ from staying guests and normal guests.
