We eat here all the time. Reason: the food is to die for. Whatever you do don't leave town without trying the fillet steak and the creme brule.

Bethany's in Palmerston North is well worth a visit. It is situated on the Square and has indoor/outdoor seating. The staff are attentive and helpful. The food is good and well priced.

Excellent night out at a family event and very special occasion, excellent food and just excellent down friendly service. Thank you for making the evening a fantastic event. Reuban and his team really do go above and beyond in service and presentation.

This is a favorite for us and we have had many excellent meals here. Of note this time was the scallop entree..absolutely lovely, with a blend of a variety of tastes. Th service was good as always, and it is a BYO with your own wines adding to the experience. This service i.e. the BYO option is not easily located... More

We wanted a quick cuppa out of the rain and found the service exceptional even though it was new years eve. My companion craved a crepe and they obliged and I had a nice caramel slice. And large pot of tea. Perfect!
