Often crowded but never too noisy, Palm's Delight serves well-prepared food to tourists, seasonal residents and local alike. Sonny and Iona have teamed up since the old Skyworld days.

We are staying in a villa on long bay beach and Palm's Delight was recommended to us by our property manager - a local. This place looks a little shady from the road but trust us, this was so amazing. Pretty simple, very low key atmosphere with amazing food. Our service was amazing. Two of us had the special Chicken... More

You can always depend on a very good value. They always have a local fish dish, chicken breast with ginger-wine sauce(very good), honey stung chicken, roti. All dishes come with the same sides, which makes it easier for the kitchen staff. You get coleslaw, rice and beans, steamed veg. and fried plaintain.

Great place to get a wonderful plate of Ginger Wine Chicken or Honey Stung Chicken. Service is very slow but the food is great and it has a beautiful view

The best places are the small local spots! Sunny at Palm's Delight offered us a great culinary experience! On our first visit, we enjoyed the ginger chicken, red snapper and conch fritters. The service provided by Sunny was great and the food was out of this world! The sides included rice and beans, plantains, coleslaw, and fresh vegetables. We made... More

Funky little local place but the ginger wine chicken is really good. Kind of out of the way, but worth the drive for some more "local" color.

I eat at Palms Delight anytime I am in Tortola. Every item on the menu is very tasty, you can't go wrong. I especially enjoy the shrimp roti which is packed with large shrimp, they don't skimp. I usually take home half of my meal to eat the next day as portions are big. The service is slow but it... More

We recently ate at Palm's Delight for a friend's birthday and we were a fairly large group, 20+. Fortunately we had thought to call ahead and place a pre-order for our food, so we didn't have to wait too long, the meals came out in batches, but that is somewhat understandable as they only have a small kitchen. Everyone seemed... More

My husband and I fell victim to a lot of positive reviews on Trip Advisor. As we live on the island, the idea of a good, reasonably priced "local" spot was very appealing...wish I l say the same about the food and the atmosphere. Not sure what the other reviewers' idea of tasty local food is, but mine is, well... More

We like to always try the restaurants that all of the locals go to and Palm's Delight rates highly among the Belongers of Tortola. The location is right next to the water and you can sample Roti, fish, honey stung chicken and my favorite, Ginger wine chicken. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are generous.
