Very cordial staff, good food and good location

Anytime a restaurant will come pick you up and take you back to your accommodations, it will get my attention. We were staying about 2 miles away from the restaurant and the golf cart got there to pick us up quickly. As soon as we were ready to go back, we were on our way back

As per my review of Victoria House - loved the extensive menu, the mouth-watering specials and the fact that we could enjoy the same menu in the restaurant dining room, the pool deck or the beach bar. The snapper (both in a sesame crust and with curry sauce) was to die for!

This restaurant is elegant, but any very relaxing also. We ate fish every night because the variety was so creative and delicious. The staff working in the restaurant were friendly and very efficient.

No need to leave Victoria House for meals unless you're looking for something more authentic. The food is great with enough variety to try something different every meal for several days.

Dear Clemriquez, I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the menu at The Palmilla Restaurant. While many of our guests do choose to dine with us almost every night, there are quite a number of other restaurants in San Pedro that we're happy to recommend. Brent Kirkman More

This was by far the best dinner experience we had while in Belize. The place is beautiful and inviting and they will pick you up at your hotel assuming you're not staying there. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming and made you feel at home. We had the shrimp and hearts of palm, cashew grouper, and molten cake and... More

Glad we got a chance to eat at The Pamilla restaurant while on the island. The hotel is a little off the beaten path from San Pedro Town but this restaurant is well worth the trip!

We ate here twice. Once, they could the fish we caught that afternoon. The Mackerel made great ceviche. We also enjoyed a private table by the garden one night. Both dinners were excellent.

I won't belabor this review with a long commentary. I have reviewed in the past. It is simply outstanding food and service. We make a point to go back every year and every year walk away thinking it's one of the best restaurants on the island.

The restaurant was beautiful, and a change of pace from the hotel restaurant that we had been dining at frequently, but there was nothing special about the food as compared to the other places that we had eaten prior to our visit. Everyone (12 of us) said that they enjoyed their meal, but since we were on the north end... More
