The Palms is an attractive looking restaurant with a classy facade for a beach front eaterie - it looks upmarket, but prices are competitive. We went for dinner, after a starter of freshly baked and tasty pitta bread, She Who Must Be Obeyed had the Vegetable Fajitas, and I went for a Lamb Casserole. This was described as a casserole served in a traditional Turkish Guvec (a shallow earthenware pot). What it failed to tell me was that it was served in a traditional Turkish Guvec - which is on fire! With a great sense of theatre, this is presented on a little stand with a solid fuel burner underneath so it is still bubbling and sizzling (and smelling divine) at the table. That said, SWMBO's vegetable fajitas were still bubbling and sizzling without any visible flame or source of ignition.
I was encouraged by the theatre of this, but further encouraged by the flavours - subtle spicing and herbs meant a truly delicious dish, and although I'm now a few days and a couple of thousand miles away I can almost taste it again, it really was very tasty. SWMBO commented that she could have used a bit more flatbread to go with her vegetables - although she was provided with a generous portion of vegetables she only got a couple of little triangles of bread so was unable to make more than two actual fajitas / pancakes / tortillas. She also pronounced it delicious though, so this was a small fly in the ointment and would not stop her ordering the same dish again.
Service was friendly and attentive, and we would (and did) go back again. Recommended.
