Reviewed March 24, 2013

Lovely place to eat, very welcoming and a fantastic atmosphere and service throughout. Would have liked longer between courses to enjoy the restaurant even more.

“Very good food but be prepared to wait for it”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We visited the Palmichael for our Daughters birthday midweek as a family of four adults and we were so pleased we had made a reservation as the Restaurant was very busy and turning customers away. We were seated as soon as we arrived and the waitress soon took our order, we ordered four starters but for some reason there was a mistake and only one starter and two side orders that should have come with the main was brought to the table, however once this was pointed out to the waitress she apologised and took the items away so that we could all eat our starters together, when they eventually arrived the starters were very good, we then waited for what seemed an age for the main courses to arrive but again the food was of very good quality, as we were quite full up after the main course only one of our group had a dessert. I suppose the main disappointment was when I paid the bill the manager said "it was a pity your daughter never ordered a dessert as we were going to decorate her plate and make it special" at this time I was surprised they even mentioned it, at the end of the day either do not say a word or just do it, a small gesture like that would have made all the difference and a return visit would have been assured. The Palmichael is not a cheap venue by any means and I do not mind paying for quality food and service, on this occasion the service was lacking and I can think of plenty more restaurants which offer both.

“WOW very impressed”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Very annoyed with myself that we hadn't discovered this lovely restaurant before now. After a recommendation from a friend we booked and were really impressed with the fab menu choice, quality of food, the most attentive smiley staff I've come across in a long time and it was a busy Saturday night. I'm quite had to please when it comes to food and service but there was nothing to complain about here. Already trying to decide when we can come back!

“Fantastic Restaurant!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have been a few times over the years and always a great experience. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Food is brilliant, not the cheapest but good portion sizes and well worth it for the cost. They even personalised a dessert for my girlfriend's birthday which is a lovely touch
