“Classy venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Breakfast and dinner were certainly filling. The tables were beautifully set and the staff highly professional and attentive. The outdoor terrace was a delightful place to sit. All in all, one to remember

“A nice place to sit of an evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The good here was of good quality, the menu offer a good choice of items - nothing too exciting though. It was a great place to sit, candle light and not completely packed out with tourists when we were there.

If you are staying at Vic Falls for a couple of nights when worth a visit.

“Dinner menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

Very touristy (choice wise) But the chef made us two very very good hamburgers even though it was on the Light lunch menu.

“Breakfasts were fine...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We stayed at Ilala and were extremely disappointed in the two dinners we had at the Palm Restaurant. Breakfasts were fine and the baked goods and pastries were excellent.

“Good to average food with chance of food poisoning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

The Palm Restaurant is rated #1 for Victoria Falls but we thought it was just OK. Presentation was good but the dishes tended to really salty. There were vegetarian options (e.g., roasted vegetables with polenta) but these were uninspiring and bland. I also got food poisoning one night from eating their fish and chips (their fish comes frozen from Johannesburg, South Africa).
