Nice place to visit

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

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

A short notice request was made...can we have our family wedding here in a couple of days time? Rubens response was of course you can. His brother Sam and his lovely wait staff including the lovely Nadia (miss teen manawatu) made our family and friends along with children very welcome. The meals and ambience were perfect. Thank you to you... More
