Absolutely wonderful evening at Palette Dining Saturday 12/8. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, exquisite food and great cocktails. We particularly enjoyed the duck entree and lamb main. We will be sure to return when we are next in the mountains.

Can't rate this high enough. What a fantastic experience. The waiter was the best we'd ever had. The quail was to die for and the entree and desert just divine. Superb dining experience.

I'm particularly fond of aged wine so we cellar our own and prefer to go to BYO restaurants as a result. However, Palette Dining had a pleasing wine list, with something for everyone - including me with a couple of 10-year-old bottles. Happy days. We...More

When we created Palette Dining, our ambition was to produce a menu that was not limited by geography or defined by a single culinary style. Modern Australian cuisine is an amalgam of cultures and styles and our food reflects & embraces that vast breadth of influence. Our menu whilst global in inspiration is local in provenance. Seasonal and balanced, our food reflect the bounty of the mountains and the best of what is available at any given time from our growers and suppliers.
