“Awesome experience!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Awesome experience at Palmco Restaurant/Garden Centre! The artistic and decorative flair shown around the place and the beautiful food were second to none. The adjacent shop is a wonderland of exquisite items that had me wandering around for ages...so many beautiful things to choose from! I will be back soon!

“totally brings out the beauty of simplicity and class with a relaxing sensation.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

lol ok.. im 17 and honestly, teen agers wouldn't bother to comment like this if it's a waste of time..

Honestly, I personally had an awesome conversation with the owner, she's very welcoming, nice and approachable. Her staff is literally lovely!! like legit, I had a random conversation with one of the staff about a project at school and i asked them if i could used their restaurant and she literally gave me some information like the restaurant pamphlet and some printed infos. with out hesitation... we had a lot of pictures taken as well hehe! And lastly the place over all is explicitly relaxing, good to come visit with the family! The prices in the shop, events and cafe is pretty reasonable as they've only started the bussiness. :) over all loved it x

“Beautiful setting and family friendly.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We had our end of year Christmas function here for our staff. The first thing that stands out is the beautiful garden setting which everyone loved. We had all our staff present with their families and there was plenty of room for all the kids to play and explore while the adults relaxed. The staff were fantastic, attentive without being over bearing and so friendly. There were a number of buffet options available for our large group and we opted for the BBQ which was delicious. It was also great value for money in comparison to many other options we looked at in the area. The panna cotta, chocolate mousse and fresh fruit served for dessert were absolutely divine and had us all indulging a bit more than we probably should have.

Everyone absolutely enjoyed themselves and we would not hesitate to go back to Palmco for any future work functions. It has been a belated review so I can not remember the name of our hosts/chef for the evening but they really helped make the function such a success. Have recommended dining at Palmco to many of our friends and family which says a lot about how highly we rate this place.
