Another lovely evening at Table 188. This time was for 'Plate of Origin'. Their take on 'Surf n Turf', locally sourced Beef paired with Bay of Plenty Scampi, delicious! Thanks for having us.

Whilst visiting Palmerston North from Sydney, my friend from New York and I dined at Table 188 in late February 2018. We had been once before in 2017 and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Upon returning, it appears the restaurant was under new management, but the...More

We enjoyed our meal. By comparison we like menus that offer more, smaller dishes, by way of small meals, entrees or tapas. This is a traditional menu albeit good dishes, tasty. The salad I had was a poor attempt of mixed ingredients that didn’t really...More

We had our end of year celebration with 10 people. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Steaks perfectly cooked, other dishes ordered were Seafood Risotto, blue cod, venison and duck. Everyone was impressed. Dessert didn’t disappoint either. Service as a big group was excellent.

I’m amazed that a place like this, with food this good, wasn’t packed to the rafters tonight. The food, the service, the atmosphere were all outstanding. Would make this a regular stop when back in Palmy.

Service was impeccable from the phone booking through the entire meal. We really like the split level restaurant. The wine recommendations were fantastic but the food was definitely a main attraction. We had the calamari and the pork spring rolls- amazing condiments with both!! I...More

We had an excellent dinner. Staff were informal but appropriate - good advice and knowledge. Food for all four of us was very tasty and well prepared. Might perhaps work on portion size - a little bit small sized side dishes. Desert of triple chocolate...More

We were a group of 5 adults celebrating a birthday and unfortunately we left very disappointed with parts of our meals. The entrees were reasonable but a night of toilet visits put some suspicion on the oysters. The steak mains were cold and the whitebait...More
