About Palate Restaurant
In 2015 Palate celebrates ten years since the restaurant first opened. Head chef and owner Mat McLean and his team deliver one of the best food and wine experiences in the Waikato.
Located beside the river in the heart of Hamilton the spacious, monochromatic, split-level restaurant provides the perfect setting for fresh, seasonal top quality produce matched to a stunning wine list.
Found restaurant to be quite warm. Our server was fabulous! Very accomodating.
Food was excellent. Very good service.
A Nice Place for Lunch
Great service Lovely lunch
Nice place for a special dinner, given it's high prices. Unfortunately the food disappointed. Wonderful ingredients and interesting sounding menu - but the end product was pretty average, with nothing really outstanding about the taste experience. With so many great restaurants to choose from in Hamilton, this no longer rates highly for us.
Excellent evening out couldn’t fault anything definitely be back again.
The bed lamb meal in 56 years!
Nick and I have been popping in from time to time on a Thursday night. Every time we have been greeted and treated with the best friendly,yet professional service from all the team. We come back time and time again for the wine list, service and privacy. And the food is fab too. Thanks Hannah for making us feel special xxx look forward our next drop in .
2nd time Ive been for lunch lately and would rate it best in Hamilton.
Still the best restaurant in Hamilton, excellent food, wonderful service, best cocktails. Everything always works so seamlessly. And with a $25 steak special (and a stunning steak too) - really good value for money. I do not usually give 5 stars for everything to anyone
An excellent meal that has to be one of the best restaurants in the Waikato. Highly recommended.
excellent food, ambience and service. We will definitely recommend Palate to others.
Loved the food however was disappointed there was no Zero or No sugar coke, only option of diet coke (which I don't like) - also no L & P and we felt being in NZ this should've been available - need to look at your drink options and having these available for purchase.
A wonderful evening, we weren’t just served food- we were presented with art! Outstanding
Loved everything about our visit last night. Food was absolutely amazing , lovely atmosphere. We appreciate the fact that the environment isn’t noisy ( my husband has a hearing disability) and the background music was just perfect. Palate is our favourite restaurant!
Service is always exemplary food is always a taste sensation. Hannah's recommendations never let us down.
Atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Food was sensational. Our waitress was friendly, fun - everything was perfect. Thank you
Food stunning as always. Service and ambience impeccable.
Great asset to the Hamilton dining scene
Last night was the best meal I've had there. Just delicious. The service was exceptional. Couldn't fault our evening. A great night with great friends.
As always fabulous food and atmosphere
Wonderful wine selection for the food we chose.
We have been to Palate Restaurant 3 times now with friends and would certainly recommend to others We will be back
Exceptional food and service. Palate is still my favourite NZ restaurant!
We had an outstanding evening having not been at Palate for some time. It was superb all round
