Delicious Dinner

We stayed at Victoria House for 7 nights so of course we had to check out the Palmilla Restaurant. We had the blackened grouper with zucchini and sweet potatoes, conch fritters, and bacon wrapped shrimp. My mouth is watering just writing this post. I believe our waiter was Leonel and he was... read more

My husband and I chose to visit Victoria House for our last dinner on the island and were not disappointed! The ambiance is romantic and wonderful inside and out and really gave us an evening to remember. While we did make reservations ahead of time, it was nice to see the wait staff so attentive and timely in everything they... More

Maybe the best restaurant on the island. Great service, and a great menu. Beautiful surroundings also.

Great for lunch next to the beach. Breakfast was fabulous (muffins were excellent) and we did eat dinner there as well. Dinner was equally good and the servers were all very polished and professional.

This is a very high end hotel. We ate lunch at the bar restaurant. The food was really good but the service was terrible. Waiters did not check on you. We kept having to go back in the bar to get them to fill water, order another drink, etc.

One of the most expensive places on the island for entrees.....but the molten chocolate lava cake dessert is worth every penny! Amazingly Delicious! I've had many molten cakes around the U.S. and the Caribbean and this was the best I'd ever had. You won't want to share!

Four of us dined here and all had different meals. No one said their food was that good. I had the shrimp risotto, shrimp was tasty, but risotto was boring. My husband had the ciopino and the broth tasted exactly like canned tomato sauce. Could have been an off night, but ...

Dear gottagoseeya01, I'm sorry to hear your party didn't find your meals exceptional. It's very kind of you to suggest an easy out like an off night, but that's not an acceptable excuse for a restaurant of our caliber. If you'd care to drop me a line with the date you dined with us and any other pertinent information at... More
