I went to Bethany's with my three other girlfriends. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was attentive. Two of my friends got the Angus steak, which they devoured and loved, then my other friend got the salmon, which she said it was the best meal she has had in a long time. I got the warm vegan salad and... More

We selected Bethanys for our Mum's special 80th birthday. From the time, we made the booking, we found staff very helpful and customer service focused. Our requirements were all met. One the actual day, staff were attentive and offered superb service. The food was delicious and the ambience was perfect for this occasion. I was impressed with the overall experience... More

We requested a table a little away from other customers. This was not a problem. The staff were attentive, offering coffee on arrival. We all had salads for lunch. They were tasty with quality ingredients used. A good option

Kids meals are fantastic. Substantial and something different although they do offer the usual chips and chicken also. Chicken salad is delicious. Great venue and kids are occupied with colouring in.

We do love trying different cafes on our travels and Bethanys is certainly one of the best we have been to. We were there for brunch on a recent trip to Palmerston North. The food was not only well presented but tasty. So many times your food can look good but totally lacks in flavor this certainly was not the... More

I like coming here because the staff remember you! Good old fashioned service with a smile and a wanting smile. Can cater for both Wiley student to the most formal business person their stance remains neutral for both. They are one of the very few palmy cafes' that sell Tea Total and their Earl Grey Supreme is to die for,... More

Went in to try the new dessert menu with my partner a week or so ago, and they were delightful! My pick was the creme brûlée! Atmosphere was warm which was nice on a cold evening, and service with a smile!!

We called for a quick early meal last night. The service was great although we did have to search for staff in the kitchen when we first arrived (it was early - so not an issue from our point of view). We then were greeted nicely and the service was good. It did take a little longer than usual for... More

The food and service were excellent - the only thing that could have been improved was the ambiance upstairs.
