“A Win/Win situation - Have the best Food in Vic Falls AND escape the tackiness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Without a doubt - the best restaurant in Vic Falls with the best value. Escape the tourist traps and the tackiness of Victora Falls, and get ready for a world class dining experience.

In Vic Falls you pay double for what it's worth for half the qualitiy as compared to South Africa, but this venue is different!

Classy piano backgroud music (really good), colonial ambiance, delicious food. So good, we went twice. All starters, entrees and desserts we had were superb. Don't leave the falls without having eaten at least once here, enough said!!

Go now, before some South African Restaurant owner of luxuxry safari lodge manager entices the chef away...

“Exellent Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I had a group staying at Ilala and their two dinner booked with Palm. Fantastic food as always and my group said it was the best restaurant they had been in their 17 days across Southern Africa.

“Hands Down best food in Victoria Falls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Not very crowded like many restaurants in Victoria falls but amazing food. The warthhog was one of the best meats I have ever tried, and my wife ordered the chicken which also was incredible. We recommended the restaurant to many people we met and they also told us how much they enjoyed it. The breakfast was also good but not as great as the dinner. We had the breakfast included in our stay since we stayed at Illala Lodge. They offer a buffet as well as menu items for breakfast. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant manager always made us feel welcome.

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very relaxed setting with a beautiful garden and a lovely tree that's got yellow flowers. In the distance you can see the mist of the falls and maybe even a rainbow.
Food is good and price is reasonable.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Good food and great service. I did not like the disturbance of the monkeys but besides this, it is a very very good place to eat and dine.
