The Palm may not have the hugest selection ever, but what it offers are very high class dishes that you may not find anywhere else - try the Kudu Wellington, and don't miss the Dark Chocolate Delice as dessert. To die for!

We didn't book and the restaurant wasn't full. Depends what time of year you are going? Disappointing that no one bothers to answer your email.
