Palmeras is one of the best restaurants in Zamboanga City, It should be in the itinerary of visitors. The food is very good and relatively cheap for its quality and service. Their crispy pata is a must-try. Their knickerbocker is the best of its kind around. Rigodon is a very spacious venue for parties and other big occassions. Their hotel... More

One word: Knickerbocker. That's the very reason why I (and other locals and travelers) never fail to drop by Palmeras during my trips to Zamboanga. Knickerbocker is a localized version of an American dessert made up of scoops of strawberry flavored ice cream on top of fresh tropical fruits. Its halo-halo meets fruit salad - a refreshing Zamboanga treat. Palmeras... More

I came here thrice from my 5-day trip in Zamboanga just for their knickerbocker. Their service is rather slow so, dine here if you have he luxury of time to wait. We had to wait for around 30-45 minutes for our food. Their food is tasty, but nothing extraordinary. We ordered the seafood platter and calamares, and lechon kawali on... More

My family introduced me to the restaurant the first time I was in Zamboanga City, and I eat here every time I visit. The Knickerbocker is really good and a favorite among my children. I recently hosted a family gathering, and the food, wait staff, and the prices were perfect for the event. I can not say enough about how... More

Excellent Food, accommodation, and service. Cleanliness is no. 1. in and out of the hotel. The garden was well maintained and the plants are exotic. We will definitely stay here again. thank you Palmeras!

One of the best restos in Zambo... I tried the pork sisig with their garlic rice, along with the knickerbocker. Hubby said to try out their seafood platter which was also good and easy on the pocket. The restaurant was clean and orderly. Problem was the scarcity of waiters and the long serving time. Better call your orders before you... More
