Me and my fiance tried their Sunday brunch last October 23 at around 11 am, it is being offered from 9am till 1pm. The spread was above average consisting of omelette, salad and hot items stations. Additional bonus was the unlimited iced tea with small glasses of either coffee jelly and milk chocolate drinks at the bar. The ceviche packs... More

The food here is great, and the service is very good. There is an outdoor balcony area with a great view.

This little bistro is located just 5 minutes walk away from the Palau Royal Resort and just behind the West Plaza Malakia Hotel. It was suggested by a Palauan friend, so we could catch-up over a meal. The place is friendly we had a Korean sake type of drink and went both for Japanese dishes although the menu has extensive...

Palm Bay Bistro is absolutely fantastic. The staff were helpful, the food was mouth-watering, and the view of the ocean was breath-taking! If you are visiting Palau you HAVE to stop by to taste "perfection."

If you're staying on Malakal, then your options may be a bit limited for food unless you want to catch a ride into Koror. Palm Bay Bistro is located right behind the West Plaza Malakal hotel, so it's very convenient if you're staying there or nearby. Restaurant offers indoor and outdoor on the water seating. The food selection is pretty... More

We picked it because it shared a parking lot with our hotel, but about 12 of us ate here at varying times. I personally had an omelet and bacon both were perfect on the price to portion to yummy scale. Others from our group did the brunch buffet, they said the food and the variety were fantastic for the price.

It is an American restaurant located very close to the Red Rooster beer factory. We stayed at West Plaza Malakal Hotel, so we had breakfast every morning at this restaurant. It is nice, quiet, with a nice view in a small harbour. Food is good, prices are average high. The personnel is nice, joking and loughing. On Sunday they have... More

A little pricier than some of the others around the area (still not bad, but plan on about $20 per person) but the food was very, very good. We ate there twice and enjoyed all of our meals. Sit outside if you are there in the evening; there are a lot of little fish attracted by the lights they shine... More

Located off the main road behind the local Red Rooster micro-brewery and with views across the bay, the Palm Bay Bistro is the top recommendation for excellent steak on Palau. We both had the Tenderloin at $25 served with a baked potato and vegetables. It was cooked to perfection and the quality was beyond what I was expecting. Service was... More
