We stayed at the Palms for a week and ended up eating at the restaurant and bar many more times than we intended.
In all cases (save one...see below) the food, atmosphere, and service were excellent.
We had the pleasure of having breakfast there two times. Sitting on the edge of the beach with the sand & ocean in view and cool breezes blowing was heavenly. The portions and quality was amazing. Sunday's breakfast was enjoyed to the soothing sound of Pangaea (man I wish I bought a CD), whose steel pan drums set a perfect tropical tone.
We also had several lunches and a couple of late nights snacks from the bar menu, both in the bar area and carry out to our room. Here again...everything was excellent! The conch fritters quickly became our favorite appetizer (maybe it's a last name thing), but nothing ever disappointed. We devoured nachos one night, snacked on stuffed mushrooms another, and had our final meal sitting at that same beach-side table with a mahi-mahi wrap and a big juicy burger. Always yummy!
The one dinner we had at the restaurant was no less of a treat. Both of our entrees (fish special of the day) were seasoned and cooked to perfection with tasteful sides. Our only regret was not getting the lobster...
The only meal that didn't quite live up to the others was the Wednesday night Caribbean Buffet. I was expecting an array of island specific dishes (roti, beef patty, fresh fruits, fresh johnny cakes, etc) but the selection was closer to a 4th of July picnic. It tasted fine and I actually really enjoyed the rice&beans with barbeque chicken, but I was hoping for more. The visit by the Moko Jumbies made it all better though!
By the way, drinks from the bar throughout all the meals were great as well! I tried several of the Cruzan Rum concoctions and enjoyed them all. My wife had a Daiquiri and a Bloody Mary and (as typically a non-drinker) enjoyed them immensely.
Overall, I can give nothing but glowing praise to the restaurant at the Palms at Pelican Cove!
