Excellent food and service. The outside setting had a beautiful view and the sound of the falls was very soothing.

The Palm restaurant catered very well to our vegetarian diet, offering multiple options. The restaurant in located inside of a lodge and the ambiance is great with indoor and outdoor seating. Great for a sit down dinner.

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.
