Booking not always necessary but it’s very advisable, even during the week it’s always busy when I've turned up on spec.

The Steaks we had were excellent . The service fantastic. The deserts enjoyable. It has been a while since we have enjoyed a meal so much. How it rates as an Italian restaurant I could not comment as we mostly had international cuisine. But what we did have was very tasty. You must book and at weekends some time ahead.

i was taken here for my Birthday. I could not find fault with one single thing, the good was delicious and didn't want my courses to end! Staff were very friendly and professional. The dishes were well presented and top quality. Ideal restaurant for a special occasion.

The food was amazing and the place was really nice. Staff was very polite and very friendly. It took a while to get a seat and to get our food. Other than that it was great.

Thoroughly recommend this restaurant, very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. Good value for money if you want somewhere a little more special.

We had not been here for nearly 3 years, and were looking for a mid-week venue that had some life in it. The Palmichael do 2 courses for £11.95 from their leggero menu Monday to Thursday. We figured this meant that it would be popular with a convivial ambience - and we were right. We were welcomed on entering, and... More

This is an excellent Italian restaurant. The staff are very polite and welcoming. The food is top. Some may say on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Its by far the best Italian in the area.

Me and my partner ate here this weekend to celebrate our 8th Anniversary and we are so glad we did. The staff are very professional, pleasant and even though it was a busy evening the service was spot on. The food is quite expensive but worth it, we both had a chicken dish and loved it. The portions are just... More

My husband and I have lived in the South East for the last 5 years and have never found such a gem of a restaurant as The Palmichael. The atmosphere, service and above all the food are second to none. The fillet steaks were perfection, as was the home made tiramisu. The montepulciano was delicious. We are already planning our...
