Great Coffee

I went for morning tea and ordered a long black coffee, a bacon and spinach scroll and a date scone. The coffee was perfect, the scroll yummy and the scone was absolutely delicious. We asked for extra butter with the scone and it was given with a smile. Will definitely go back for lunch.

The ambiance and service here is good but it was extremely warm and uncomfortable in the restaurant. I was very disappointed in the main of garlic prawns with tortellini with ricotta cheese which was doused in lemon juice. It was a horrible combination and very sour and bitter taste. It left me feeling quite nauseous. At $34 the price was... More

Dined with friends, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed their meal, good service from very pleasant staff, willing to slightly tweak dishes to suit personal taste. Good value for money. If you have a sweet tooth try the chocolate fondant dessert.... delicious. Loof forward to a return visit.

Nice restaurant with great friendly, helpful staff who gave good service. While the food was very good, the serving was basic - fish of the day was very fresh and very well cooked but more accompaniments would have made the price of $36 worth it, it was pretty much one piece of fish with salsa. Lamb was the same, very... More

Had a large group of 17 for a birthday dinner on Saturday night. Table set up in a quiet area of the restaurant. Great service and excellent food (no food left on anyone's plates). We had two children who enjoyed their meal choices which were well priced as well. There was an area set aside where the children could draw... More

Went with a big work party - they looked after us very well. The food was excellent, and the beer / wine was great. Nice ambiance.

Relied on reviews to book this restaurant for a special family members birthday. From the initial contact and other questions asked of them through email they were extremely helpful and accommodating. And the food . . . Just superb. Service on the night perfect. Finished of with a relaxing drink on the sofa's. Could not fault the food or service.

I can't remember the last time I could actually say that I left The Gallery feeling really satisfied, not only regarding the wonderful food, but also the very quick service and warm welcome from the staff. I am definitely going back and would highly recommend this restaurant as having some of the very best food and extremely well priced.

This is my favourite restaurant in Palmerston North. Fabulous decor and always a warm welcome from staff. An interesting menu with exquisite food which is beautifully presented. The best place in Palmerston North for that special occasion.
