Was a beautiful evening so able to sit outside. Tables nicely laid and lit with an oil lamp (take a torch to read the menu!) Really tasty food and reasonable price. Excellent service.

We stayed at the Ilala Lodge and enjoyed two breakfasts and one dinner at the restaurant. The service was wonderful and the food was impressive. Breakfast: many options on a buffet. Anyone would find something they liked, even my picky daughter. Dinner: great setting with even better food. We sampled kudu and ostrich! the ostrich was to die for.

We were staying at the Ilala Lodge and so ate each night in the Palm. It was excellent. Superb service , lovely food. Portions quite large so we shared either starter or main course. Lovely location for lunch or dinner. Breakfast was superb!

The set up on the lawn is very beautiful for dinner. The food is nice but we expected more. In our opinion there are better options in Vic Falls.

We were very happy with our meals in the Palm Restaurant. Breakfast is a superb spread of fruits, meats, cheeses, cereals etc. with additional hot breakfast selections to order. Dinners here were very satisfying and delicious throughout. Good selection of wines at reasonable prices as well. Service was consistently delightful.

Venturing out from our hotel for dinner we enjoyed the Palm Restaurant's wine selection and varied menu. The crocodile meatballs were amazing while the quail was a good second place. A bottle of dry Jordan Rose' from SA was big enough to tie together the lean ostrich fillets we ordered. Dessert was a trio of home made ice team. To... More

The food was out of this world, we had the Gemsbok biltong & Springbok Biltong starters which were full of flavour. This was followed with the beef tenderloin steaks which were presented very well and tasted even better. The setting was very romantic as we had dinner on the terrace with candle light. The service was first rate and we... More
