Lovely place

Gorgeous place to have a meal or catch up over coffee. Wonderfully friendly staff, and food was good. Loved the ginger honey lemon drink that they served.

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.

The restaurant was about half full, we were given the choice of 2 tables. Service was prompt, warm and friendly. We started with the garlic bread which was so good Dad 'could have eaten another...

Went here to celebrate my first wedding anniversary with my husband and two friends. We were by far youngest group there and I think we were judged for it! It took 40 mins from arriving to when we were first asked if we wanted anything. One of my friends was told the blue nose fish had run out but was... More

I reviewed this Restaurant late 2013, and despite enjoying the evening at that time, there were a few hit and miss issues I felt were inconsistant with a restaurant of this calibre. This time I went with a group of business associates for a get together. The surroundings are relaxed and pleasant, service was polite, prompt and helpful, though we... More

Amazing service. Maitre d' Ally was absolutely incredible. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was outstanding especially the Lamb & Beef with wine recommendations. I would travel from Gold Coast back to here just for dinner. Returned for brunch 3 days later, greeted by Ally. Food just as fantastic. Thanks for a seriously awesome experience

Had a catch up with a couple of colleagues here for lunch. This was an excellent choice. The food was delivered quickly and was hot and fresh. I have a couple of food issues so often change the menu item to suit my dietary needs. I was really impressed not only how happy they were to do this for me... More
