This little bistro is located just 5 minutes walk away from the Palau Royal Resort and just behind the West Plaza Malakia Hotel. It was suggested by a Palauan friend, so we could catch-up over a meal. The place is friendly we had a Korean sake type of drink and went both for Japanese dishes although the menu has extensive...

Palm Bay Bistro is absolutely fantastic. The staff were helpful, the food was mouth-watering, and the view of the ocean was breath-taking! If you are visiting Palau you HAVE to stop by to taste "perfection."

If you're staying on Malakal, then your options may be a bit limited for food unless you want to catch a ride into Koror. Palm Bay Bistro is located right behind the West Plaza Malakal hotel, so it's very convenient if you're staying there or nearby. Restaurant offers indoor and outdoor on the water seating. The food selection is pretty... More

We picked it because it shared a parking lot with our hotel, but about 12 of us ate here at varying times. I personally had an omelet and bacon both were perfect on the price to portion to yummy scale. Others from our group did the brunch buffet, they said the food and the variety were fantastic for the price.

It is an American restaurant located very close to the Red Rooster beer factory. We stayed at West Plaza Malakal Hotel, so we had breakfast every morning at this restaurant. It is nice, quiet, with a nice view in a small harbour. Food is good, prices are average high. The personnel is nice, joking and loughing. On Sunday they have... More

The Palm Bay Bistro is not very far from the Pacific Royal Resort (maybe a 7 min. walk) and even closer to Kramer’s. We ate there on two occasions separated by about a week. Once we arrived about 1:50 PM, just before their 2 PM closing and the second time we got there about 5:30 PM, early for the dinner... More

A little pricier than some of the others around the area (still not bad, but plan on about $20 per person) but the food was very, very good. We ate there twice and enjoyed all of our meals. Sit outside if you are there in the evening; there are a lot of little fish attracted by the lights they shine... More

Located off the main road behind the local Red Rooster micro-brewery and with views across the bay, the Palm Bay Bistro is the top recommendation for excellent steak on Palau. We both had the Tenderloin at $25 served with a baked potato and vegetables. It was cooked to perfection and the quality was beyond what I was expecting. Service was... More

The restaurant is by the sea and has a nice view. I ordered seafood pasta which is cream based. It is a bit soupy, a guess more Japanese-based pasta rather than Italian. The seafood is fresh. A bit pricey but the serving is big.

It was located conveniently close to our hotel. Breakfast was filling and tasty, as was the honey mustard pork chop and Hawaiian pizza.
