As a local of many years we were thrilled that Accor took over the management of this hotel. We dine regularly at lunch & dinner & always take visitors and friends there. The service is always pleasant, professional and friendly, the food is always great, the venue is lovely wether dining out or indoors and using the Accor Advantage Plus... More

After reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to dine here. My partner had the Scallops for entree and I had the Pork Belly. Both dishes were delicious... For main we ordered the Beef and the Smoked chicken risotto. Again couldn't fault it.

A busy restaurant in the Pullman Hotel, stylishly decorated - spacious table settings. The only downside was the location is not central and not near / on the beach. You could be anywhere, instead of one of the most stunning beach villages in Australia. The menu was excellent, a lot of gluten - free options (though not marked on the... More

The wife and I have tried several restaurants in Palm Cove and this has to be the best. Firstly, the staff are very friendly and provide a high quality service. The food is an excellent standard, similar to the 1 or 2 hat restaurants we frequent in Sydney. The scallops in celeriac purée was sensational and the steak was cooked... More

As regular visitors to Palm Cove we expect ordinary food with fancy descriptions at what seems to be " standardised prices" ie.too expensive. But last nights experience at your restaurant was exceptional. The food was just beautifully prepared and the attention to detail was outstanding. The staff certainly did their best to add to our enjoyment Mac & Jan

From all the reviews this is supposed to be a the number 1 restaurant in Palm Cove, I was disappointed and didn't feel I got value for money. The food itself was superb, well presented and tasted great. I would recommend the lamb shoulder, and beef tenderloin. The deconstructed lemon meringue pie was to die for. Unfortunately the finesse of... More

Situated at the Pullman Palm Cove Sea Temple Resort & Spa. Temple of Taste Restaurant is welcoming, stylish, friendly. The food was excellent. Every choice was a taste treat to the senses. My highlight was the "Ruined lemon meringue tart". Deconstructed, so that every component was a joy. Such a pleasure, we returned for desert after eating elsewhere. Treat yourselves... More

Temple of Tastes is the restaurant in the Pullman Sea Temple resort where we stayed. While we would normally like to try a variety of places and not double up, we ate dinner there twice, as we were so impressed with the menu. Why walk further than you need to in the dark (with the threat of lurking crocodiles?) The... More
