Description: Come and experience a culinary journey at the top rated Palm Restaurant. Centrally located only minutes away from the Victoria Falls at The Ilala Lodge, The Palm Restaurant offers a magnificent breakfast buffet, tasty lunches and al-fresco evening dining. With an unmatched menu, comprehensive wine list, the roar of the falls in the background and a star-lit setting, it’s an adventure for the appetite that is not to be missed.

Attached to Ilala Lodge, this is firstclass dining. Service is friendly and professional.The facilities are in the vein ofan1800s club, with Livingstone memorabillia as its theme.
The Croc curry is a good choice. Lava cake and the coldaforgardo are also excellent choices. Size of the course are more than adequate and the quality and presentation are excellent.

Well worth a meal at The Palms if not a stay at Ilala Lodge.

You can see the Falls mist over the manicured gardens, with the occassional wild visitor. I've been told during times of high water flows, (over the falls),the mist falls onto the lodge and the roar can rattle the windows which adds to the experience.

Good views and excellent food - the fish cake started was really tasty. You can sit out under the stars. And the staff are very friendly and helpful.

We asked our waiter for recommendations and were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The service was professional yet friendly. We were so impressed, we ate there two nights in a row rather than try somewhere else.

Very good and interesting native African menu as opposed to another nearby restaurant menu that was geared to a traditional British Colonial type food. The Palm included warthog, osterich, crocodile as well as beef, lamb and chicken.It was well prepared and well presented. Wine list was most reasonable and enjoyed.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. we sat outside and managed to see the spray from the falls. the food was well presented though service was a bit slow, understandably as it was almost a full house. i'd recommend for anyone looking for a something a little bit on the exotic side on a lazy afternoon :)
