Polished 'old fashioned' Italian restaurant; they know what they are good at and stick too it; good honest hearty fare. Family run and care, service etc shows.

We have been going regularly to the Palmichael for several years now (the restaurant has been open for 30 years!). We can honestly say in that time we have never had a meal that was less than excellent. The monthly steak night is now a firm part of our calendar, with beautiful steaks and a glass of wine for only... More

6 of us visited the restaurant last weekend having read the reviews on TA and I have to say we were not disappointed. The welcome was very friendly and efficient and we soon got our drinks whilst we viewed the menu. There was plenty of choice and we were soon shown to our table. The bread/olive oil were very nice...

Don't be put off by thinking you are walking into someone's house here. This restaurant has been open for years and it's reputation goes before it. The food is very good and the restaurant is always busy so booking is advisable

My wife and I have eaten at the Palmichael, in Burton Latimer, only once, however it was a memorable occasion, because the food was fresh and excellent, and the place had the special atmosphere of a longstanding, family-run restaurant of well above average quality. It was obvious that several of the other diners were 'regulars', and we could understand why... More
