Good food, well presented. Fine dining, but relaxed. 90 USD for two (two courses, water and bottle nice wine) - reasonable value for Victoria falls. Accept credit cards as does virtually everywhere.

Dinner at the Palm restaurant is a culinary journey beyond words. The service, the food cannot be faulted at all. Any visitor to Victoria Falls who does not have a dinner at this fine restaurant is missing out on a real treat to the senses

The menu had a lot of interesting game options, and everything we had was very delicious and nicely plated. The ambiance of the restaurant is also very beautiful, and the seating from the patio allows you to see the mist of the falls. Excellent service, as well.

The hotel was fine, nice rooms, walking distance to the falls. Very commercial, and high price level for the drinks/food

The breakfast included hot selections, as well as ample fresh fruit, juice, pastries and yogurt and topping options. The evening bar menu was great for an easy dinner - sandwiches, fish and chips, and actual entrees. The daytime view was lovely, dining in the evening was pleasant.

Probably best restaurant in Vic Falls. We had crocodile risotto and Ostrich steak, both excellent. We highly recommend the place

The restaurant is lovely and the wood very good. The service a little slow, but who´s in a hurry? The bar outside is really classy with and has a swimming pool.

Breakfasts at the hotel offered so many options. There is a buffet for the continental breakfast items (fruit, cereals, bread, croissants and juices). The hot items are ordered off the menu which ensures that the food is always hot and to your liking. The dinner menu was extensive and offered great local dishes. We dined twice on our 4 night...

We stayed at Ilala Lodge for 3 nights and ate in their restaurant several times. We couldn't fault anything- excellent service, very fresh, nicely presented, great taste and reasonably priced food.
