Our family decided to come here for our Christmas meal on Xmas Eve. We had been a couple of times before and had had lovely meals. We knew that the restaurant would be busy, but were fully prepared to relax and wait for our meals. Every table was booked which is credit to them and their delicious food. We were... More

We went to the Palmichael as a group of ten. Only four members of the party had visited before. We each had three courses and absolutely everything was prepared to perfection!! Friends even said it was the best steaks they'd ever eaten! Some complain that the Palmichael is expensive, I'd say you most definitely get what you pay for, yes... More

Living in the same town where this restaurant is located makes it easy to be able to book a table quite frequently. The restaurant is family owned and run and the staff are all very friendly and attentive. There is a small bar area when you enter and this is usually where they would take your orders, however you can... More

Although it is a bit pricey it is well worth it for the quality and service which never wavers. Our only grump is that for... More

we hadn't been here for many years, but friends and neighbours spoke of it highly. So we tried it again -superb - particularly as we happened to go on "steak night" which was excellent value for those eating steak. Service and food were both of a high standard. Just one very small negative, the tables are all long and narrow,... More

We've been to the Palmichael a few times and have always enjoyed it. On arrival we've always been seated at the area near the bar with drinks provided straight away. They've taken out food order there. Once taken to our table we've been given bread and olives then the food comes in a timely fashion. I think sitting and ordering... More

We have visited the palmichael on numerous occasions. Simply exquisite and in a league of its own. Service is impeccable, food is stunningly beautiful and scrumptious! Don't need to say anymore.

We first visited this restaurant a long time ago and had memories of a cosy family run establishment. This time we went with old friends and with some trepidation, Saturday nights are not our favourite for eating out due to the busyness of most places. On that score we were not disappointed, the Palm Micheal was heaving and we were... More
