My husband and I stopped in for lunch and it was ok. For what we got and the money we paid, it was not worth it. We paid twice as much than other places on the island. The food use to be worth the money as we have dined in for dinner before. We live on the island and eat... More

Restaurant is within the Victoria House resort. Beautiful property. Linen tablecloths, soft candle lights, air conditioned building. Our wait staff was very nice, and the lobster tails were food. The only downside was we had the misfortune to dine while there was a very loud (and tipsy) group of guest that were disruptive to the entire dining room throughout our... More

While our lobster meal was very good and the service staff were attentive, our meal and evening were ruined by the rude and ignorant intoxicated group of patrons in the restaurant on Sat.,Feb.11th at 7:30 pm. It is unfortunate that management allowed these folks spoil the evening for us and the other patrons that evening. A nice place spoiled by... More

It wasn't Valentine's Day yet, but the classy dinner at Victoria House's Palmilla Restaurant felt like what a romantic Valentine's dinner should feel like at a fine restaurant. Aside from the great food and drinks, the ambiance was amazing - beach setting, sea breeze, lights on the palm trees, live soft music, attentive service. We were offered a small complimentary...

Okay this is 4 years ago...but went there for lunch one day and was not disappointed. The food was great, everything was fresh and the portions were generous. The staff was very friendly and the service was very prompt. Next time would love to head there for Dinner.

On Jan. 20 we had dinner at this restaurant and expected a special meal and where truly disappointed. No bread was brought to the table until we asked and it was cold and tasted like Wonder Bread. We ordered the Conch Fritters as an appetizer and it was over fried, oily, lacked Conch meat and flavor. It was then on... More

The five of us decided to make the Palmilla Restaurant at Victoria House Resort the final dinner of our vacation on Ambergris Caye. It was a great choice. The service was great. Our water was continually topped up. The wine was a tad on the warm side but they did there best to chill it down quickly for us. We... More

Coming to Victoria House for our business lunches/dinners is one of the nicest perks of working in Belize. You can go wrong with any of the meals, but the roasted chicken is amazing.

It's like eating at a 4 star back in the states with conch fritters instead. Premium water fill service. Ok bread service but it was fast. Inside and outside were lovely but reeked of kerosene in the tent. Steak was great. Lobster too. Veggies and mashed potato aok. Lava cake above average with outstanding home made vanilla ice cream.
