We would like to thank our waiter Michael. He was just superb! He knew everyone's names even though there were roughly 19 of us there. Highly recommend!

Love love loved our waitress - so friendly, and we always love the food. Table we were seated at caught really bad sun so struggled a bit with being so restricted to where I was able to move. Definitely won't affect us coming back though.

We had a meal to celebrate my daughters Birthday. Her Prawn starter was very poor, texture of rice pudding had either been frozen or overcooked or both. Of 4 steaks ordered two were over cooked and one was full of gristle. Two had cheese board for desert which was a joke three tiny bits of cheese biggest piece was blue cheese luckily I can eat blue cheese. On top of this it took an hour to get our food. The waitress was new but was faultless, But food was coming off the pass in no order. We did not complaint when we were there because we wouldn't want to make a fuss for the young waitress and it is not our style to create a scene, however the meal was poor.

Little Savanna was a wonderful surprise, having never been there before. Atmosphere, decor, food and service (Joel) were all excellent. Being so popular it was easy to see why there was a small delay in getting our meal, however the staff were quick to make up for the wait, you can't ask for more than that.. Overall a fantastic first date with a beautiful lady at a fabulous restaurant..

We were served by Jamie who provided us with outstanding service and was a great conversationalist. He is a real asset to your business. The Espetada was not only delicious but a whole experience and the Belgian dark chocolate semifreddo, with salted caramel and pistachio brittle was mouthwatering and very satisfying! A great place to dine!

I would have given 5 stars for food and drink but for the fact the herb and garlic crispy Potatoes weren't crispy. Our waitress Rebecca was excellent the whole time. Very attentive without being intrusive. We were also approached by a young guy on his first night shift who we found very cheerful and engaging. You have a tremendous team and we intend returning. Thanks for a great evening.

What a great addition to Palmy's eateries. Spacious and comfortable with a good vibe produced by music videos middle aged people can relate to. Enjoyed our espetadas, very healthy vegetables, mine was perhaps a bit on the rare side though after I asked for medium. Maybe I needed to say medium well done. Panko goat cheese croquettes good too, and nice wines.

Wow, thanks Conrad for the great review. Sorry to read though that your espetada was a bit rare for you. Please next time just tell the wait staff so that we have the opportunity to get it how you like it.
