Had lunch at Bethanys with my wife and 5 month old son, last visit was February this year (dining out has been a little rare since my little man was born, as most parents would know!) . Nothing has changed, staff always very friendly and helpful and meals always great and served promptly. A nice atmosphere at Bethanys. Keep up... More

We stopped for a late lunch in Palmerston North. Bethany's restaurant is in the central square of the city, we had seats by the window though anywhere will do. We got clear and helpful guidance on the fish, on the specials of the day, the service was quick and the food was really very tasty. They were not busy when... More

I was a bit worried to go out to Dinner as I thought Bethanys would have nothing for me to eat. So I rang Bethanys to check it it was worth going there. They were very helpful & told me there was 1 or 2 starters & 8 different main dishes to choose from, I also could have Dessert if... More

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
