Food was delicious, although steak not cooked as ordered. Beautiful decor and nice atmosphere. Service not so good, not genuine at all by the host on the desk. Waitress was very good. Great wine. Would return and recommend.
Excellent entrees. Disappointing mains. Poor cuts. Poor sauces. Cold plates, cold meal
Always enjoy the experience
Atmosphere and location was perfect, quite busy for a Monday night. The menu was a little too confusing, not sure if it was hearty butchered meals or asian fusion (judging by the starters). Overall we were happy with the restaurant, would recommend.
We had such a great evening at Botswana. Our waiter was very attentive and gave us great service. The food was amazing and it made our last night in Queenstown so special
Singapore Chilli Crab was amazing!!
Fantastic Service! We had the French waiter Ludo who was excellent. Awesome little birthday touch to our dessert and the French onion soup was an experience like no other!! Highly recommend and I will be back when in Queenstown again!
Great food and service. Highly recommend the room upstairs.
The place is good as far as grade quality of food is concerned. Service is average you'd find in most other places in town (not bad by any means just not over an above); however, from my observation, it did seem that the servers cater a bit more to their bigger tables and I dined solo.
We come to Botwana for special occasions and have always loved it however I think our most recent visit was the most enjoyable. The food was next level and the atmosphere (we had a table next to the pass) was amazing. We got to see first hand how efficient the kitchen and wait staff were - very cool to see. Thanks team!
Table wasn't ready when we arrived on time, no place to wait. Waited two hours for main courses, waiter never checked in, we had to flag down a different waiter to complain. The food wasn't cooked properly (overcooked) and when we mentioned it to our waiter at the end of the meal, he told us we we're wrong. Horrible experience, would never recommend to friends.
A special place - make sure you go!
4 star on atmosphere solely because i struggled to hear my partner as the table next to `ours was a bit close and noisy. 4 star on service is only because we waited some time to be served after being seated. saying all this i would certainly return when i'm next back in Queenstown.
A great dinner, very nice food, the Citrus Bomb dessert was outstanding! It took a wee bit long to take orders and for food to come out but it was a busy night...
Fabulous staff, very helpful
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful experience. Our group thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our lunch- food, drinks, service and ambience were exceptional!
Find it hard as kiwis to have an evening ruined when we don't give a tip. We are employers and and well travelled. We understand the minimum wage policy of our country fully and are dissapointed our position wasnt respected in our home. Fab food and atmosphere ruined by the negative reaction to our position on this.
Great food! Fitted us in at short notice even after I accidentally booked Auckland!!
Excellent restaurant as usual - one of the best in QT
Absolutely stunning experience. A very special meal on our honeymoon. Thank you.
Another brilliant dinner at Botswana Butchery. Food & service impeccable as always!
We had lunch two days in a row and enjoyed both very much.
Food was really good, so was the service. Our waiter was Ludo and he was very good. I would highly recommend!
