The restaurant is in two parts, an American style diner upstairs and a more conventional restaurant on street level. They offer a very interesting menu with a good variety of offerings plus a good wine list. They also offer a range of boutique beers.

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.
