The Palmichael is a fantastic family run restaurant. We have been eating at this restaurant for a few years now and introduced family and friends to it as well. The food is just lovely, always good value and always well done. I have honestly never had anything that I've not liked. The staff are so friendly and helpful, even when... More

We ordered drinks and were seated in a waiting area. Unfortunately we were there for some time while waiting to be taken to our... More
