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.
Had a wonderful night with a 5 course degustation menu. Food was delicious and service exemplary.
Amazing food as always ..... love love love the battered oysters and study of a Granny Smith
Great service match by great food
Amazing service and food - an outstanding dining experience.
Lunch here is fine; attentive (but not too) service, lovely setting, but quite honestly I am not quite sure - as a vegetarian who has had lunch here quite often in the last six months without any serious acknowledgement that there are a lot of us about - it's high time for a menu revamp. As I indicated last time I commented. Or are you happy that enough meat eaters fill your tables?
excellent service and food. High recommend.
We had several food restrictions, and the kitchen was thoughtful and made our experience very easy and enjoyable!
Lack of service staff Wait for long time to place order Good food Nice wines Hard to find parking nearby
Great venue,great food and good wine selection. What more could you want for a quiet night out.
Fantastic meal with a great wine selection.
We had a really nice time, the food and service was amazing and really appreciated that we didn’t feel rushed.
Another great evening. Wine oclock was great. And our dinner afterwards was lovely. Food top notch and service excellent. Cant fault.
Awesome food, lovely peaceful environment. Will defs come here again!
Wonderful food and service, as always, so thank you. A very big party here tonight (post funeral) so not down near the river - not a problem but when it is two people it is nice to be down at the bottom or away from the big party.
Great food & service
food was amazing, felt the service could have been a tad more attentive, but over all was a great experience.
Epic. We will be back. Food was just perfect, innovative, different and it all worked, but on top of that I was warm, comfy, our table was perfect size for us, there was a low hum of content noise rather than the harsh jarring clatter often found in other establishments. Our long suffering waiter was polite and attentive and basically lovely. Happy days.
Fantastic meal with great service. Still the Hamilton front runner
The food are too salty
Very disappointed,food nicely presented but bland and tasteless. Staff very good, polite and helpful. Saturday night and not very busy, is this a reflection of the disappointing food? Don’t think Matt was on, certainly usually much better food when he is there. Oysters poorly presented, not even cold, no ice, nothing but a little vinegar, sashimi passable but no sign of spicy calamari, steak and lamb very pretty but bland.
Great food, wine and service! Couldn’t recommend more.
Amazing night, amazing food! Thank you!
The best fine dining experience in Hamilton. Everything was perfect. Thank you!
