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.

We stayed at the hotel so decided it was just as easy to eat in the restaurant. Very friendly and great service. A nice variety of food available.

We started in the restaurant and ended up asking for the server to bring the dinner to our room. After a challenging travel day they were so accommodating. Food was just what we wanted.

We were a larger group of friends (17) having dinner and had an enjoyable evening. The food was very "game" based with springbok and kabu and crocodile.. some very good and some mediocre. The crocodile risotto was very creamy and well cooked. The kabu Wellington on the other hand was way over done (though rare was ordered). Nice colonial setting,... More

We visited Ilala Lodge on New Year's morning for their Burger&Beer special. Upon entry we were warmly greeted and the stunning interior of the restaurant took our breath away. The burgers were very good also and good value for money. When in Vic Falls a visit is highly recommended!

We had a very pleasant Christmas Eve dinner at Palm Restaurant, Victoria Falls recently. The service was impeccable with waiters being polite and attentive. The background live music (piano) was at a pleasant level that allowed us to converse while at the same time being pleasant .What we also liked was that tables are not cluttered close together giving us...

I had the same dinner each night because I fell in love with it. The pork meats with warthog is simply excellent. The atmosphere for dinner is amazing as there is a guy on the piano and the lights are turned down. Breakfast selection is quite good as well. Well-deserved number 1 spot.

Great food and service. Attentive waiters, very varied menu. Not the cheapest but still great value. Nice views across to the Falls. Excellent buffet breakfast.

Great space. Food however not living up to expectation - especially dinner. We found the food beautifully presented, but not not as tasty as could be. First night we had risotto, vegetable curry, butternut soup. All three dishes somewhat disappointing. Second night, kids opted for toasted sandwiches whilst wife & me had salad. Better. Breakfast was good and enjoyable. I... More
