The decor is bright and breezy and somewhat odd-matched with an enormous poster of Bob Marley on one wall and a delicate Zimbabwean watercolour on another. Often you'll find Rasta artists selling their wares here at lunchtimes/afternoons.
It's not grand -- white plastic tables and chairs, paper napkins, etc. -- but the food (chalked onto a blackboard menu so it changes each day, pretty much according to whatever is available in Vic Falls that day according to our waitresses) was surprisingly good. Best value and highly recommended was the rump steak (at £7/$10) with thick chips and salad. The half-chicken was also reputed to be good but the burgers a bit disappointing by comparison.
At night, there's a bonfire where people sometimes meet to talk, drink beer and sing, sometimes with live music. A great place to stretch out for a hot afternoon or a long warm evening. It also hosts a reggae festival in the second week of May.
You get the picture that it's relaxed, has a very varied clientele and that you'll be eating/drinking alongside mainly locals where virtually anything goes from time to time.
