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.

We spent two days in Vic Falls and thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Palm restaurant. We both enjoyed selections from the game menu - "pork meets warthog" and kudu Wellington. We also had a springbok samosa appetizer which was outstanding. We loved experiencing some of the local game as that seemed very hard to find on menus during our time in Africa, so this was a nice change. Highly recommended!

Stayed at Ilala Lodge for 6 nights. We had breakfast, lunch and supper at the Palm restaurant at different times. Breakfast was excellent, lunch was very good, especially the burgers which are divine. Only had dinner one evening and we were a little disappointed. The risotto was good but the Arronicini was a bit dry. We didn't get to try anything else so it would be unfair to judge the dinner menu too harshly. Service is excellent. Good wine selection. Overall a very good experience.

Quiet spot, but yet a great selection of meats on offer and service was perfect as well. A great spot for either couples or if solo too!

My girlfriend and I are spending 2 nights in the Ilala Lodge and went to The Palm Restaurant without reservation. We were extremely lucky to get a table from the very friendly waitor.
We both took the samosas and the kudu which were very delicious. The South African red wine which was recommended by the waitor was excellent.
The ambiance was perfected by the music of a live piano player.

Bottom line was that we cancelled our plan to go to a different restaurant tomorrow and made a reservation at The Palm Restaurant
