Restaurants come… and go and some others remain firmly in business, but change professional tack, often considerably and sometimes frequently.
Café Nush Organik’s has operated at Chisipite 10 months, but I made a debut call this week.
For the first time in ages the sun was shining when I drowsily opened the curtains of my cottage at dawn on Wednesday.
I was asked if I’d like to sample the St Valentine’s Day menu at Thorn Tree Lodge, Glen Lorne at supper last Wednesday.
The last time I drove west down Samora Machel Avenue for lunch was to the much-missed and long-lamented Cellar Restaurant.
I was very impressed with Cresta Sprayview (long ago Peter’s Motel) at Victoria Falls, even more so with Cresta Mowani, an hour away at Kasane in Botswana.

Having tried out the brand new Highlands restaurant, Maestro, on readers’ behalf, I was about to write: “third time lucky?” in reviewing it.
