I ate here with my girlfriend on 18/12/11. I'd heard good things about the place but must admit there was a slight element of trepidation when we saw it was located at the bottom of new build flats. Do not be put off by this. The food was fantastic, clearly the chef is talented and the portions were generous to boot. Bouillabaisse was exceptional with plenty of juicy, plump mussels and a fair few prawns swimming in flavoursome broth. The mains very well executed I opted for duck cooked three ways and the girlfriend had a fish cake starter with chips side portion. Both were great. I would also add that we were the last persons standing (well sitting) and that our pre-booked taxi was running 15 minutes late. Despite obviously being the reason why the waiter was kept behind he was utterly nice about the situation and told us not to worry despite our apologies for keeping him at work. In fact I must add service was exceptional throughout. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

NEVER AGAIN! As a starter I ordered a fois gras. When the waitress brought my appetizer to me she said: "this is your pate". I felt like replying. I'm sorry I did not order a paté, I ordered 'fois gras'. I did not say any thing and I ate what was a paté indeed. It was good. But please do not call something which is not what it is. 'Fois gras' taste much better than 'paté' by the way. Then I went for the vegetarian meal. Guess what I received? A bowl with tomatoes from a can. I struggled to find the aubergines (as announced on the menu). There was no parmessan either (as the menu suggested it). There was a piece of mozzarela swimming in the tomatoes sauce from a can! I ate half of my meal. My husband took the most expensive meat meal on the menu. It was not the best meat. To use (who are real gourmet eater) Palmers IS NOT a gourmet restaurant at all. The service was good. The wine (£26 for a South African wine) was good. We paid £89 for the wine+ appetizer and main course. I do not mind to pay but honnestly we eat better at Thai Vista and it cost half the price. And we eat even better at Thai Room. We are regular customers of both Thai vista and Thai Room. We will never go back at Palmers

I live nearby and always had to head towards the other side of Victoria Park to find good restaurants. Problem is some of the gastropubs and restaurants in Victoria Park Village area are becoming increasingly packed/expensive, the service on busy days verges on rude. So it was a good surprise to find Palmers. We received a warm greeting and throughout our meal the service was friendly and efficient. I had black pudding and quail egg for starters and my husband had the black fig and fennel salad. Both were good but the salad is a winner.Beef was done to perfection, medium rare, accompanied by yummy fat hand cut chips. In few words, Palmers is a very welcomed addition to an area somehow deprived of good restaurants. Wish them the best.

We live locally, and referencing another recommendation, there's a slight undersupply of nice places to eat here in Bow. Not to say there aren't any in the Victoria Park area - Empress of India, the Britannia, and Bistrotheque to name three - but Palmers, foodwise anyhow, trumps them all. I had a courgette flower fritter stuffed with goat's cheese, a couscous and poussin dish and a pavlova for my dessert. It was fantastic. Palmers kind of reminds me a bit of Rosemary Lane - the decor is a bit spartan and it's a bit off the beaten path for most folks, but it's a real labour of love. It is owned by a Czech-south African gentleman named Stan and his two sons cook and serve. The place is charming, the food is fantastic, you can linger as long as you want over a bottle of quality wine, and it's got that great local feel to it. A very welcome addition to an emerging restaurant scene in the East End.

We ate there last night and it was absolutely delicious! The dishes were seasonal and beautifully cooked. The staff were friendly, but not overbearing. It was good value for the high quality of food we had. We will definitely be returning.

By Nick M.

Four of us ate there, goumets all and extremely hard to please and we all agreed it was one of the best meals we have ever had - every starter and every mains was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. This place is a real gem and cannot be too highly recommended.

Fantastic food, a real treat in a barren part of the East End. Friendly staff - it's an old guy and his two sons. Don't worry about the decor, its all about the food!
