The taste is good but the service is horrible. Ordered different dishes for 4 family members. Food was not served together but one after another, with an unreasonable time gap. Thus, the joy of dining together was completely lost. Supervisers and servers are totally confused.

A nice spot in the Palace for a drink, friendly service, drinks priced as per a normal hotel, but the basics a a bit pricy.

The deck at the Tusk Bar for sundowners is a must. The location at the Palace is amazing, ranks are reasonable price (for a leading hotel) and the atmosphere is relaxing and rewarding. Sadly the service has slipped. Twice I had to walk inside to...ask for someone to serve us. It wasn’t for lack of staff, three were standing around chatting, one on their phone, but no one attending to the two tables outside. This may sound petty but expectations are high in an exclusive hotel like the Palace. So come on guys buck up your attention to service and get back on top like you used to be and stop the spiralling descent into poor service and lack of attention to detail.More

We really loved it over there because the food taste vs price comparison was above average. Also the staff was very friendly

We were looking forward to having a sundowner on the verandah. As we walked onto the verandah looking around, Lucia started calling "madam" in a very unfriendly tone and angry face. Sit here she said and threw the menus on the table and turned her...back on us. I called her on her name but she ignored me. I could write pages and pages about her unfriendliness and unwillingness. Our drinks arrived and we barely started drinking when she shows up with the bill telling us we should pay by card (with card machine in hand) Now I wonder if the staff is this unfriendly with all patrons or only because we are locals? It's an absolute disgrace to be treated like thisMore

Called for 'leisurely' pre-dinner drinks. Placed our drinks order, some tasty nibbles arrived promptly but we then waited 40 minutes for our drinks which only arrived after the intervention of the bar manageress/supervisor. On asking for the bill, we had the most embarrassing experience. A...credit card was tendered and the waitress initially said it had been declined. When we challenged this, she walked around the bar waving the machine in the air saying she could not get a signal. One of our party then tendered cash which she accepted. The cardholder then noticed that the transaction had 'appeared' on his credit card statement 3 times and queried it at the bar. The waitress then returned and literally threw the cash she had accepted on the table without any comment. Despite the 3 entries, it did transpire that the credit card transaction had eventually only been taken once but certainly not the best experience we have had. Fortunately the lovely meal we had later in the Grill Room helped us put aside this less than pleasant experience.More

Great place to visit in the evenings, the ambience, the food is also good. A nice quiet place for sun downers. The snacks are good, the service is good.

This is the only place at the Palace you can sit outside in the evening and have a meal. Waiters have to tun downstairs to The Grill room to place order then down again to fetch order when ready. We received cold food - without...the condiments, bread etc as waitress probably could not carry all upstairs on her own. There is a flood light on the terrace which is not conducive to dining. This restaurant/ Bar is also only Smoking! I dont believe waitress error but management.More

After a long day of safari and pool we were just looking for a light and easy dinner. The Tusk Bar has a lovely fire lit patio overlooking the pool and jungle. Phastina took care of us and made the experience absolutely perfect. Paraphrasing her...name means festive prophet and could not be more fitting. She is so charming and very efficient. We had such a nice dinner that we came back for cocktails and to visit with Phastina the next afternoon!More

It's a nice social bar in the hotel. That's the place for me to taste Jameson, an Irish whiskey. Never forgot. A nice place to hangout with.
