The Palm Restaurant testimonials:

Fine dining in a classy setting!

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!’ – Nancy C

Outstanding service, food, menu and location

We had a wonderful dinner sitting outside under the stars. The menu was top-notch, offering many choices … including game. We had kudu, warthog (excellent) and springbok.’  – TRHinHouston
