I enjoyed dinner over some great company! The servers were polite and awesome, the food was amazing! The desert was to die for I have to say the flourless chocolate cake is the best piece of cake I've had in the island! While at the bar I had sangria my favorite! The bartenders were so welcoming and had a couple... More

We are staying at Victoria House, and have enjoyed every meal we've eaten at Palmilla. I particularly enjoyed the beet salad. My husband loved his Lobster. Others in our group liked their grouper and tenderloins. We visited this restaurant 10 years ago, and were happy to find the meal as delicious as we had remembered. The service was even better!

While staying at Matachica on the other side of the island, husband and I wanted to have a nice romantic dinner one night somewhere other than Matachica. Based on research I had done prior to arriving in Belize, decided on Palmilla. The staff at Matachica were nice enough to assist us by making a reservation and with catching the island... More

We planned to visit this after my brother decided to stop by one day and tour the grounds. This is a great spot and one can see why it would be perfect for weddings or family reunions.

Stayed at Victoria House where this restaurant is located. Initial concern about resort restaurant as it is the only one. Pleasant surprised by quality. This is one of the nicer restaurants on Ambergis Caye. We dined here twice and enjoyed both dinners. Seafood and vegetables are fresh and delicious. Wine selection not extensive but good. Excellent service. They go out... More

Thank you for such a detailed review! It’s always interesting to know the exact dishes a guest chose, if those dishes were as delicious as our chef hopes they are, and if the guest loved them. It’s clear you appreciate the time and effort it takes to create delicious creations, and we will be sure to pass along your compliments.... More

Went there with two good friends and my wife to celebrate her birthday. We were attended in an excellent way by Marlon who showed us to our table and took the orders. Food was outstanding, albeit a bit high-priced. This is to be expected though, as the food was superior anything we had on Ambergris. Highly recommendable.

We stayed at VH and dined here several times. The food did not disappoint, and the staff was beyond exceptional! They are especially accommodating when you catch fish and ask them to prepare it to your liking. HIGHLY recommend dining here, even if you don't stay at Victoria House. They treated every guest with first class service!
