Description: We met at periwinkles restaurant many years ago, both young, passionate and enthusiastic trainee chefs. One qualified, we opened our first restaurant 'Vasseur on Broadway' a successful boutique 35 seat restaurant which we owned and ran for 10 years. In 2000 we purchased and then transformed this beautiful 1920's homestead into what Nero is today. A few years on, with two wonderful boys- Jack and Harry, numerous awards, and a fantastic team of staff, we are still passionate and enthusiastic, but not as young as we once were!

My wife and I had a kids-free night while staying in Palmerston North and were after a high-end restaurant. Cafe Nero was recommended to us and wow, it didn't disappoint!

The service was excellent and the Scotch Fillet was incredible.

Look forward to going again!

This is our favourite restaurant in Palmerston North for special occasions. The chef is very clever with combinations and presentation and the ambience is excellent. Lovely wine and great wait staff are a winner!

The most outstanding food I have had in a while - there was six of us and every single person enjoyed everything they ordered - the decor and atmosphere was great. I would recommend this place to anyone as a great place to dine

George had vouchers for our favourite restaurant so decided to bring Marlene to sample the excellent food. And it didn't let us down. Thoroughly enjoyed the best bottle of Pinot Even tried dessert which was a bit of a let-down but the evening was a good one.

Influenced by very high TA reviews we had high expectations of a memorable dining experience. We both chose the lamb dish main, at $43 p.p,which comprised small portions artistically presented but accompanied only by nice jus and wafer chips - no greens at all ! With minimal service, our lasting impression was that the overall meal quality and enjoyment did not come close our best global experiences of lamb dishes within the price range. Disappointing.
