Lovely, tasty and well made food. Delicious. Great staff serving also. Looked like a lively bar upstairs also. Took the kids and they were able to get a meal out of some plate sharing.

Description
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.
