The food here is as good as gets. I was actually dining in the restaurant when drsoma 24 (the douch bag who left the below review) was there. Firstly who orders lamb medium-well done? Of course it would be tough! I had my lamb the way the chef recommends it, rare. Tender, succulent and what New Zealand lamb should taste... More

My wife and I were visitors to New Zealand. We were staying with a local couple in Palmerston North. It was my wife's birthday and we invited our friends to celebrate with us. Per our request, they chose Bethany's in Palmerston North, believing it to be a quality establishment. Our delight ended when the server showed up. She was completely... More

First of all, I would like to thank you for your review, which was by the way very creative! Bethany's is a quality establishment and we will always stand by that. I see that you were dissapointed from the start when Nadia your server, (I think the term is waitress), showed up! Was she absent for awhile? Did you seat... More

I reckon this place is a gem. Right from the story behind the name to the final farewell you feel like a welcomed friend. The staff to the last didn't hover but they were just a glance away if you needed something. Whatever that might be, it was delivered with a smile. The environment is also special. The building protruded... More

The food at this place is AMAZING! Everything on both our plates were full of flavour. We sat upstairs next to the window to overlook the square and the service was exceptional. Highly recommend this restaurant.

This was my first visit to Bethany's Restaurant and I had lunch with a colleague. The restaurant has two levels and we were seated on the upper level so we had a nice view out over The Square. I had the soup special, which was a tomato and bean-style broth that came with nice homemade bread. The soup was pretty... More

If you come to Palmerston North please ensure that you visit Bethany's in The Square. Sit in a park in the middle of the city and enjoy first class food.
