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.

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...

Tucked away in Burton Latimer this Italian restaurant offers fine meals. A good choice of starters and mains. We had the fillet beef, and the sea bass over a smoked haddock rissotto. All very tasty ! The wine of the month was also very nice. A busy Saturday night but no problem for the attentive staff, a mixture of experienced... More

Went there with my husband just before our baby's due date and can't believe we never knew about this restaurant before. Lovely atmosphere, small so not too many people there. Went on a Tuesday evening and was fully booked so ensure you book a table in advance. Food was fantastic and of a high standard as was the service. Definitely... More

Visited on a midweek night after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. Restaurant was empty when we arrived at 6:30 pm but soon filled - I'm glad we booked! The restaurant was laid out for dinner and the cutlery, glasses and table decoration were absolutely spotless. The welcome was warm and throughout the evening the staff were pleasant, efficient and... More

I went to the Palmichael 5th May 2015 to celebrate my mother's birthday and what a great night we had. This the sort of quality that is well-worth paying a bit extra for. We arrived on time, were shown to our table and drinks were ordered, which arrived promptly. We ordered our food (starters, then Tornedro Rossini for me and... More

First time at the Palmichael having been recommended to us by family and friends. Cannot fault service or food. Catered for my gluten free diet really well - even had Gluten freee bread -usually unheard of! So refreshing to go out to eat something you would not easily create yoursrlf at home. Highly recommended. Will definitely revisit.
