The food is very good and service is phenomenal. If you are staying on the north side (like Coco Beach or Grand Caribe), plan on it taking around 35 minutes in a golf cart to get there.

This was one of our favorite places to dine on a recent trip to Belize - the atmosphere, the food, the service - all were outstanding! Palmilla is one of the nicer restaurants on the island, with a better wine list than most and an elegant but still casual atmosphere. The menu is full of fresh, seasonal dishes, but be... More

A real classy looking atmosphere. This would be a place for lovebirds, the food is very good and they treat you special. We started out with the bean soup which was delicious but not out of the box. They do have other nice app options like ceviche. We had the cashew crusted grouper which was pan fried and absolutely delicious... More

The restaurant is excellent, one of my favorite things to do is to have lunch outside by the pool. It's beautiful, the food is excellent. Wait staff is professional and very accommodating and nice.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and it was ok. For what we got and the money we paid, it was not worth it. We paid twice as much than other places on the island. The food use to be worth the money as we have dined in for dinner before. We live on the island and eat... More

I'm sorry to hear that you feel you didn't experience the same excellent service and menu offerings that the majority of our other guests do. It’s true that there are some restaurants in San Pedro where you can lunch for ½ of what you paid at Victoria House. There are some where you pay even less. Our prices are very... More

Restaurant is within the Victoria House resort. Beautiful property. Linen tablecloths, soft candle lights, air conditioned building. Our wait staff was very nice, and the lobster tails were food. The only downside was we had the misfortune to dine while there was a very loud (and tipsy) group of guest that were disruptive to the entire dining room throughout our... More

Okay this is 4 years ago...but went there for lunch one day and was not disappointed. The food was great, everything was fresh and the portions were generous. The staff was very friendly and the service was very prompt. Next time would love to head there for Dinner.
