“Lovely setting, decent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

The little town of Vic Falls does not offer too many eateries, but the Palm was a lovely respite after a morning of waterfalls! The lunches are perfect, sandwiches and salads that were delicious, and the breakfast buffet was full of fresh and flavorful fare.

“Excellent food, ambience and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I would highly recommend the crocodile curry! Great food, great ambience and great people. If you're not staying at Ilala, book in advance and request a table outside if it's not raining. The candlelit tables are exquisite!
