    Many monkeys here 🙊🙊 You can feel the nature of Botswana. Food is always fresh and good. But Ice cream in Waffle is too sweet :(

    The lemonade and Moroccan Chicken Sandwich are yummy!! Both are must try! Pizza is also highly recommended! The restaurant is surrounded by greens and trees, which I like it very much. Monkeys are often seen wandering and jumping on the roof or branches and they are well-behaved most of the time 😄

    Love this place every time I am home. Staff at sanitas ... You rock ... great smiles and happy makes me feel home. Gelato ice cream is tops not to mention the super lemonade which is unparalleled in the world... Yes I am not joking... I flew all the way from North America home and this is my place to have perfect lemonade with monkeys who want to take your food. Thank u....

    I had icecream and a giant chocolate chip 🍪 cookie. The trees and general greenery and flowers are just everything. I totally recommend. Have something to nibble while tree shopping

    The environment is so serene. Service was great too. Took a walk in their garden and it was refreshing. Ended up buying a rosemary plant.

    Amazing pizzas🍕, delicious fruit shake🧋 in the most beautiful garden/nursery🪴! A must visit when in Gabs!

  • 5/5 charmaine van h. 1 year ago on Google
    Sanitas is a true haven of peace pampered by expats. With a large shaded terrace, the "Tea Garden", this restaurant is ideal for a peaceful lunch, or to relax in the afternoon with your book and a coffee. Families will also enjoy this address as it has a large children's park. While the menu offers a good range of salads, burgers and pizzas,

    What an incredible spot for breakfast or any meal I suppose. This spot is a little bit of a drive from Gaborone but well worth the effort. A shaded and cool oasis in the middle of the blistering Botswana days. The juices, teas, coffee and food were all delicious and well-presented. We had a memorable experience and would recommend this to anyone and everyone visiting or passing through Gaborone.

    I enjoyed the waitress recommended meal.and drink choice. They are just slow in response to check back with after serving you.

  • 5/5 Brett o. 2 years ago on Google
    As pleasant as usual. Great place to relax in the shade of a wild fig tree, and enjoy a tasty meal or a cool drink. Kids love the play area, although currently restricted due to COVID

  • 3/5 Karen F. 1 year ago on Google
    Nice atmosphere. Super slow service. Left without ordering. Not the first time. If you're happy to wait a while it's a nice place with good food.

  • 4/5 Mathew Phineas M. 1 year ago on Google
    A refreshingly different oasis atmosphere, if you want al fresco breakfast or lunch experience with a touch of difference and relaxed outdoor settings. Sanitas tea garden is the place to go. Child-friendly and great family feel.

  • 5/5 Peter R. 1 year ago on Google
    Fabulous food and atmosphere. Great for kids with play equipment. Very good selection of plants to purchase or just visit for the restaurant. Lots of bird life and even a few monkeys in the nearby trees.

  • 5/5 Todzai Kaguvi C. 1 year ago on Google
    I loved the serenity of the place, just walking through brings a sense of peace. It doesn't have the look at me now self aggrandizement. The only disappointment when we arrived for lunch was that some of the menu items had finished.

  • 4/5 Sadie T. 1 year ago on Google
    It's very serene. The food is okay, the place needs to improve on its service, otherwise it's very beautiful. The plant prices are reasonable as well.

  • 5/5 Lenard W. 1 year ago on Google
    Lovely tea garden and great food. They even allow small dogs if you're looking for a pet friendly outing! And homemade icecream to top it off.

  • 5/5 Rudi B. 9 months ago on Google
    Amazing outdoor place to visit. Food is amazing and value for money. Kids enjoy playing on the jungle gym. The lemonade they make is a definite must-have. The only negative thing for me is that the monkeys are becoming a bit too much stealing food from tables and scaring the kids. This will have to be looked at. They are getting used to stealing food, and somewhere in the future, they are going to become aggressive.

  • 5/5 Effrosyni B. 5 months ago on Google • 8 reviews
    An amazing place to eat or drink that makes you feel you are in the jungle.

  • 5/5 Susan B. 6 months ago on Google
    Great place for brunch if you have time to wait for your food to arrive. Nothing is fast food there. Lovely grounds to walk around and see all the flowers, shrubs and trees for sale. They also have garden furniture and garden ornaments on sale. A lovely place for kids to play with all the climbing frames and slides. Just keep an eye out for the Vervet monkeys! The ice cream is so good there too! Everything to eat is made from scratch!

  • 5/5 tinaye m. 3 years ago on Google
    The best place in the city for plant lovers ,the atmosphere is so serene and you literally enjoy your food under the a tree canopy ,sometimes little friends can fall on your table from the tree but it’s not that biggie if you don’t mind ,there also an option to sit under a shed. The garden salads are my favorite ,everything is always so fresh and crisp. Last I was there they had started using biodegradable straws and the lemonade slaps 👌🏿👌🏿

    One of my favorite places in Gaborone. They have a lovely variety in their nursery. The tea garden is so peaceful and their food is delicious. They also have a wonderful variety of delicious gelato. Dare I say the best in Botswana. If you like lemonade try their homemade lemonade.
