“so in love”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Took a colleague for lunch and never regretted the decision.The food is awesomely made, exquisitely served by the best waiters i have seen in ages.Thumbs up to the fish dishes .The outside sitting setting is the best for the wholesome Victoria falls breeze, cooling Zambezi water sprays and sighting of game.We totally loved this cozy restaurant , can not wait for the next time to eat from there.

“Nice Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Food here was tasty & fresh, but prices are quite high & their credit card machine was not working too well. The restaurant has a nice view of the spray of the falls. Our friend said she had the best crocodile salad here, as I believe this hotel runs the crocodile farm. I'm vegetarian, but evidentally crocodile tastes like a cross between chicken & fish.

“Excellent small hotel restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

The nice thing about the Palm is you can eat outside on the veranda. The meals are wholesome, waiters friendly and a wide choice on the menu, including Crocodile and game meat.

“Always amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

The outside seating affords one excellent atmosphere and the roar of the Victoria Falls and the great plume of spray from the falls are clearly apparent.

The food is delicious and creatively presented. The fresh baked breads and rolls are delicious accompaniments to the very good options on the menu.

My personal favorite is the warthog fillet or beef. The deserts are very tasty and again show creativity. This is an excellent eating venue and good value for money.
