“good cream of crab soup; good fish sandwich; good lobster roll”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I went to Testa's for lunch twice, when I was in Palm Beach in October 2012. Both times I ordered the crab soup (btw, the "cup" is the size of many other restaurants' bowls -- big). The soup is really pretty good to excellent -- if you like crab and you like cream-based soups. For my main, I had the fish sandwich (cod, on the day I ordered it -- I think I had it grilled) one day, and the lobster roll the other. Both impressed. The cod was tasty and seemed fresh, and the lobster roll was chockful of lobster. Testa's is not really a bargain, but the prices seem quite reasonable -- especially for Palm Beach. I recommend it.

“Great lunch!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Really enjoyed our Mahi-Mahi and crab cake sandwiches. Homemade potato salad and fresh bread wer also very good. Service was excellent and prices were fairly reasonable (for Palm Beach). Outdoor seating was also very nice! Hard to find any fault with this place.

Testa's is a Palm Beach institution they have been here for a hundred years, and so have theri clientele. The summer and early bird specials are a good value but the regualr menu is overpriced for what it is

“As Good As Ever”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Outside dining with views of Royal Palms. Pasta and strawberry pie---the best! Nostalgia on the walls throughout with postings from the last 50+ years in Palm Beach. Come here for all the local history in one spot.
