A wonderful evening and dining experience dor our wedding anniversary. The duck was superb and the waiting staff attentive but not intrusive. Our waiter had been with the restaurant for only two weeks but was excellent in every regard. Only advice would be to allow a functionality for a tip if wanted (not that we usually do, but we felt that we wanted to due to excellent service).

We had a beautiful dinner yesterday! The food was served with good quality! Nice combinations of different taste! The restaurant was quite busy but even then there was a relaxed atmosphere! The waiter was very friendly! Well done :) We will definitely come back again. Cheers guys

Special birthday dinner for 6 . Could not fault the service, setting or food. Easy to hear conversations with each other which can be a rarity when dining out.

Hello, Lovely experience. The food and beverages were lovely. Love the fact that lunch sizes were "lunch sized" and not huge. Well done. The service was "average" . Our waitress did not seem to really understand the menu, was not all that helpful and didn't "really" seem to care. I put it down to age and experience but this could improve . Otherwise great and will be back.

The night went very well. It was unfortunate that we didn't get more attendees, as it made it a bit expensive.

Service was phenomenal! The lady who seated us was amazing as well as both guys who waited on our table for the evening. One of our party was vegan and the chef turned out an amazing three course meal for her. Cannot recommend enough!

Glad that the chef has stopped shouting his orders out like you are at McDonalds! Food was excellent but an expensive night out!

Heard great things, dishes Are very very small. Tapa size only. Flavours were nice but not wow. Will try the dinner menu at some stage to see if any better. Expected more sadly disappointed.

We had a group of 14 people and everybody raved about the awesome food. The service was excellent, the beer and wine selection was really good and everyone had a really enjoyable evening. Thanks to the whole team at Palate.
