Average service...good food...great atmosphere

First off, the location is very pretty and we loved the ambience. The food (appetizers, main course and dessert) was good. Huge portions. We were a party of 8 and several of us ordered the special. They only had "2 left" which was odd since it was a fairly simple red snapper dish. Nonetheless... read more

Indoor or outdoor dining. We chose indoor due to a cool breeze off the ocean. Restaurant is elegant and romantic. Nice menu and wine list. Food is very good and the staff was wonderful. Recommend dining here. Reservations recommended. Transportation to/from our condo was provided which was a very nice touch.

Palmilla provides the most sophisticated dining on the island. The food was excellent, though a bit pricey, and the atmosphere was a bit formal for the island setting.

Breakfast: A 5! Tasty, fresh, and great. Can get it delivered to your room, but you have to go to the restaurant to order it. Dinner: a solemn 1. I think their menu choices were abundant and sounded good, but the practical application for dinner was poor. Maybe it is hard to get good selections of meat there, but the... More

We are staying at the Victoria House Resort and arrived in the late evening after three flights and over twelve hours of travel so we elected just to eat at the hotel and we are very glad we did. The dining room is nice and quiet and the service was very good. We both had the cashew crusted grouper which... More

We have been going to Palmilla Restaurant for the past 6 years to celebrate our anniversary, and a few Valentines. Until last year, the experience has been perfect: attentive, professional service, excellent cuisine and presentation, complete with personalized molten chocolate cake dessert compliments of the house. Last year, however, the service was less than attentive--the waiter spending much time catering... More

Dear LamLiam, It’s true that some things have changed at The Palmilla Restaurant over the years: new menu offerings, new chefs and even a few new, fresh faces in the dining room, all of which we feel are a positive part of our constant effort to improve our services and amenities. I’m sorry to hear that your most recent two... More

Hotel and restaurant reviewed in full under Victoria House. There was nothing not too like, but their New York strip steak was disappointing.

We visited Victoria House Restaurant last night for dinner. We enjoyed dinner but felt very much deceived when the bill arrived as it was in US currency, apparently the menu was as well but we were never told that. We have been in Belize for 2 weeks & the only places that list pricing in US currency always post it... More

Dear Connie B, I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinner at Victoria House, but disappointed to hear that you were surprised upon receiving your bill. As you observe, a number of businesses in Belize list their prices in US dollars. The reputable ones make this very clear to their guests and clients by posting it in a clear... More

We had a second floor Plantation room, with a beautiful balcony. Victoria House was the perfect place to end our hectic trip to Guatemala and Belize. Breakfasts are served outside and are very good. Try the eggs Benedict. Light lunches in the bar area are also very tasty and the outdoor seating has great views.

We had a lovely dinner here on Saturday night. The food was amazing, Julio gave us great service and the staff, as always, was amazing. Beautiful view of the Caribbean and could not have been better. Thank you!
