Great food, service and venue

This place is great for breakfast in the park-like setting or for a fine dining romantic dinner for 2.

Had dinner here, and the food was supurb, very promptly delivered and great presentation. When I first arrive at 620 the restaurant was empty, but it soon filled up. Service was good. Ambiance was good for couples and business dinners. Both downstairs and upstairs options with view over the square

The location of this Cafe is awesome and the food is good. Plenty of variety in the menu and at the counters. We've found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Will go back. Cheers

This restaurant is a really good place for a more fine dining evening. They offer good wines, and a good range of beautiful tasting food.

Came here for dinner with my wife as heard lots of good things about it. However, was disappointed with our meals, which was a pity. Service - Great service and very friendly. Can't fault them on this one at all. Food - We ordered garlic bread (with cheese) and soup of the day (red thai chicken curry) for entrees. The... More

We had a voucher for brunch and used it on my birthday. Great brunch of eggs benedict with salmon and heaps of trimmings. Good glass of red wine too. We go to Bethanys often and have never been disappointed in our meals.

Bought a grabone deal. Had the ostrich burger which wasn't bad. My wife had a vegan salad which again wasn't bad but wasn't spectacular. A bit taken aback by a $1.50 surcharge for a thing of ketchup to go with my fries. Wasn't told there'd be a fee at the time, and this obviously isn't about money if I'm eating... More

You would have to be pretty hard to please to not enjoy this lovely restaurant. The staff, menu, environment and food quality continues to be absolutely top notch.

Colleagues took me to this well situated restaurant overlooking the square and lights of Palmerston North. I was surprised at the quality of food and ambiance in this small city restaurant. Very pleasant staff, a good menu and service. Myself and another member of the party chose the recommended selection of the day, kingfish on a bed of roasted select... More

The person serving us was nice, however she never offered to refill our drinks or replace the empty water. The food looked nice but my pork belly was over cooked and dry , and the crackling didn't crunch, Overall a pretty average
