I ordered crocodile with pasta as main and springbok samosa as app. Lovely food for decent price. Also got a bottle of wine. Price for 2 mains, 2 apps and wine was around $100 w/tip. Not bad for what we had to choose from in the area. They also brought out complimentary chocolate truffle. Wonderful service!

The Palm restaurant catered very well to our vegetarian diet, offering multiple options. The restaurant in located inside of a lodge and the ambiance is great with indoor and outdoor seating. Great for a sit down dinner.

Brilliant service coupled with the best meal I have eaten in town. It is mid-range to fine dinning, a real treat. Would highly... More

The variety of items on the menu is the first clue....be prepared to try the unusual. I loved the quality of the food and choose to try the crocodile mushroom risotto and my husband had warthog! Both were excellent and with generous portions (we could have shared our salad). Our ice cream for dessert was homemade and the best we've... More

Excellent choice of food, including some unfamiliar game options. Reasonable wine list, but limited choice of wine by the glass. There was also a live pianist playing soft relaxing music to a high standard, providing an ideal accompaniment to our dinner.

We loved Ilala Lodge and the view from the Palm Restaurant. The service was excellent. The waiters very welcoming and helpful. When the weather was inclement they moved a table under the eaves to allow us to still sit outside. Breakfast was excellent.... lots of variety with the buffet and great cooked options. Dinner was unfortunately not as good. The... More
