“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
– Virginia Wolf

‘Dining well’ to us means excellent food, presented in a beautiful setting, accompanied by personalised service. This is the trio around which we have designed your dining experiences at Stanley & Livingstone.

1871 at Stanley & Livingstone

Dining at our restaurant, whether in the dining room, on the sun terrace or out in the gardens, is as anticipated as the appetite-stirring adventures.

À la carte menus offer classic European and African-fusion dishes that are always delicious – and sometimes a touch exotic, introducing local flavours and modern takes on traditional dishes.

To prepare them, our chefs use the freshest ingredients, celebrating seasonal produce. The results are meals that are perfectly cooked and full of wholesome flavour to tempt every palate.

Our chefs take pride in meeting any dietary requirement (vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.) and preference – children also have their own menus. And there are always treats to look forward to…

Visitors not staying at the hotel are also welcome to dine with us. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment – VoIP: +263 8677 000 457 | Alternate tel: +263 83 284 1003/5/6

Private Dining

If you would like us to arrange something a little more romantic, private dining is a moment made for two. We will set a table in your Suite, on your terrace, or in a secluded corner of the gardens. Fresh flowers, softly glowing lanterns, and a personal butler at your service will add to the ambiance.

The Wine Cellar

Wine pairings elevate your dining experiences and our cellar houses a fine collection. Lovingly gathered, it favours some of South Africa’s premium wine producers, as well as lesser-known ones adding to the sense of discovery. Cellar private tastings to explore further can also be arranged.

At The Pool

On summer days, there’s little reason to move from the poolside. Tasty snacks and light lunches are served from the restaurant to your shaded lounger – as are refreshing drinks from the bar. This sun-splashed area is the ideal spot to try one of our specialty cocktails or sip on a glass of crisp wine.
