I wanted a nice place to take my wife, son, and daughter-in-law for dinner, so chose Dejeuner. The restaurant is small and cosy, with background music that stays in the background, allowing comfortable conversation. The food was excellent, though the on-line menu is significantly out of date. Food was also a bit less "French" than I expected, but all four... More

Fabulous starters; scallops and salmon salad, 10 out of 10. Good ambience however the lighting is a bit low for our old eyes though! The mains weren't as good, but we are fussy. I had to ask for the extra mushrooms I'd ordered (and overheard another table asking for something that they had ordered that hadn't been brought to the... More

We had occasion to visit this unassuming looking restaurant when we went to a family wedding. The setting is intimate and smart. I had scallops to start and they were divine, cooked to perfection. For main I opted for the Angus steak, rare, and again it was excellent, perhaps more blue to the thick end, but excellent none the less.... More

It all started with Jason and his friendly and prompt responses to a booking on the website. Top job Jason..really appreciated it. A group of 10 this time and it was a gathering of friends in a very friendly environment. We were welcomed like returning guests ( which we weren't) and made to feel extremely welcome. Top start.

This restaurant is a real gem and an asset to Palmerston North. Décor quaint and welcoming. Waitress also very welcoming and attentive. Menu is adequate (i.e. not as expansive as others) but there is something to suit everyone and all tastes. We had a lovely entrée (bread and dips), followed by mains (1) lamb and 2 Pork belly. Both of... More

My partner and I went here on September 3rd for dinner and I booked directly through the restaurant's website. When we arrived, they had no record of my booking, but we were seated really quickly and without a fuss. We received several apologies during the night, which wasn't necessary as this wasn't an issue, and they righted it beautifully. The... More

Dejeuner is only open for dinner now. The menu has great options. We had duck, filet steak, chicken and a delicious platter for starters. There is a BYO option which keeps the cost reasonable. We shared a Creme brûlée. This was a wonderful meal. Never rushed but we were never forgotten. We will return.

This restaurant has moved and slightly changed it's name to Le Petit Dejeuner since our last visit about 3 years ago. We were pleased we had made a booking as the restaurant filled up by the time we finished about 7.30 pm. We were warmly greeted and seated. Although we were given quite a lot of time to consider our... More
