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.
Lunch was delicious and service was brilliant! The $25 express menu is a great addition. Many thanks :)
Beautiful food and amazing service, Highly recommended
Always a lovely meal at palate, excellent staff an willing to meet our needs. From the loud girls lol
Always excellent with lovely service. A very happy Xmas to you all.
Once again a great meal. Unlike most other restaurants in Hamilton, we can always rely on you guys for consistently good service, food and value. Keep up the good work. Thanks
Absolutely brilliant food and service
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
Excellent lunch menu
A fabulous evening for my partners birthday eve, delicious food and great service
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 only fault is the stairs down to Palate.....everything else was superb
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!
Absolutely Fabulous food and service. Thank you for a great evening
We received great service and an outstanding dinner and drinks for our group of 30+ people. All the meals where cooked and presented very well. Highly recommended
Glad that the chef has stopped shouting his orders out like you are at McDonalds! Food was excellent but an expensive night out!
Catered for our group of 32 brilliantly
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.
Lovely lunch, attentive service, meals hot as they came out and delicious to taste. Definitely will visit again.
