We checked out a lot of restauranrts in PN and this was cheaper than most and the choices looked very interesting. We weren't disappointed - I chose the Chicken and Prawn salad, my friend had the meat balls and linguini, and both were excellent. large servings, superbly presented, lots of tasty chicken and prawns, meatball sauce was also very tasty....

Overpriced rubbish with slow service and expensively priced meals. Left feeling ripped off. I'm local and won't ever return. Steer clear

I went to Bethany's with my three other girlfriends. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service was attentive. Two of my friends got the Angus steak, which they devoured and loved, then my other friend got the salmon, which she said it was the best meal she has had in a long time. I got the warm vegan salad and... More

We requested a table a little away from other customers. This was not a problem. The staff were attentive, offering coffee on arrival. We all had salads for lunch. They were tasty with quality ingredients used. A good option

Kids meals are fantastic. Substantial and something different although they do offer the usual chips and chicken also. Chicken salad is delicious. Great venue and kids are occupied with colouring in.

We do love trying different cafes on our travels and Bethanys is certainly one of the best we have been to. We were there for brunch on a recent trip to Palmerston North. The food was not only well presented but tasty. So many times your food can look good but totally lacks in flavor this certainly was not the... More
